How to determine the Foundation Stiffness of a beam

Hello everybody.

how can I relate the Foundation Stiffness offered by a circular section beam with its elastic modulus?

The only thing that I came up with is the following:

I set the elastic support on an area equal to the cross section area of the beam, and then I set the Foundation Stiffness dividing the elastic modulus for the length of the beam.

The resulting units are correct, and I believe also the physics are correct, but I really would like a confirmation of that.

Thank you very much,
