The shape factor is the ratio of-

  1. Elastic to plastic moment capacity
  2. Young modulus to plastic moment
  3. Plastic moment to young modulus
  4. None of these

Answer: A. Elastic to plastic moment capacity

The shape factor is the ratio of elastic moment (Me) to plastic moment (Mp) capacity.

Solution

Shape Factor = Shape factor is the ratio of elastic moment (Me) to plastic moment (Mp) capacity. 

Also, it is the ratio of elastic section modulus (Ze) to plastic section modulus (Zp).

                                         SF = Mp/Me

Hence, option A is correct. The shape factor is the ratio of elastic moment to plastic moment capacity.
