Hi @PETEROZNEWMAN!

I made a couple of mistakes too.  

1.- The graph I sent is “True strain” not “Engineering”, I wrote the wrong title. So you can take my data.

2.- We must discuss about SHEAR too, not only TENSILE, as I exposed at the beginning.

I simulated the material for the Design Points 51, 55,56,57, 58,59, 60 and the results are as following (see the file attached with results for the block C):

 

As you can see, the difference is huge, and the SHEAR limit is over-exceed. Remember that in my first post I indicated 0,33 MPa but I found some EPS manufacturers indicating around 0,13 MPa.

You can see the file here:
