According to SW Help:
The SN curve is derived by dividing each stress value of the reference SN curve by the modulus of elasticity of the reference ASME material and multiplying it by the modulus of elasticity of the current material. The associated numbers of cycles remain unchanged.
I would try to compare it to a Aluminum material that you know a SN curve and E-mod off. It will answer your question.
thank you very much for your help.
Could you expand on the phrase 'E-mod off'?
Thanks in advance
Thank you James.
The answer is no, you shouldn't.
Please refer to Solution S-069698 from the SOLIDWORKS Knowledge Base.
Excerpt: "The "Derive from material Elastic Modulus" option is ONLY valid for the fatigue validation (according to the ASME code) of BOILERS AND PRESSURE VESSELS made of material approved by the ASME CODE for such use."

Thank you Julien, it's good to get a definite answer for future reference.
Do you know that particular ASME code. I need to use that as a reference in my project.
