Hello. I am a new user trying to run a simple pull test on analuminum rod on Comosworks Student Ed. The rod is subjected tolarge stress causing elongation beyond the elastic range. I pickedthe material from the library which give a value of E for Al to beabout 70 GPa. But since the modulus value is appropriate for onlythe elastic range, do I need to manually enter E? Any advice orlinks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
