Shape Factor Calculations

Shape Factor (SF) = Loaded Area / Unloaded Area

Rectangular Prism (SF) = (Length x Width) / (2 x Thickness x (Length + Width))

Square Prism (SF) = Length / 4 x Thickness

Disk (SF) = Diameter / 4 x Thickness

Ring (SF) = (Outside Diameter / 4 x Thickness) - (Inside Diameter / 4 x Thickness)

Spherical Cap (SF) = (2 x Radius - Thickness) / (2 x Radius)

Shape Factor Calculations

Compressive Modulus = Cs / (Assumed Percent Deflection / 100)

Corrected Compressive Modulus = (Compressive Modulus) x [1 + 2 x SF²]
