Moment capacity

I am not an engineer. I would like to know how to calculate the moment capacity of a square hollow section.


I know how to calculate the moment of inertia, and I know Young's Modulus for the aluminium alloy the SHS is made of.


Can anyone tell me the formula for calculating moment capacity, given moment of inertia and Young's Modulus?


Also, if I am creating a new material to use in Soldiworks simulation, which values do I need to enter in order to obtain accurate results in the simulation? I don't see Young's Modulus on the list of properties.


Thanks in advance!
