New tutorials on Pure Bending of Composite Materials are up in the Mechanics of Materials course! The 6 tutorials in this section go over how to solve basic pure bending composite material problems as well as reinforced concrete. There are two full worked examples on the pure bending of reinforced concrete. Fear not the rebar you shall, young padawon.
The third section of the Mechanics of Materials course is now complete! It has 8 tutorials on torsion that will teach you how to use angle of twist, shearing strain, and shearing stress to find minimum shaft dimensions and more!
72 free Statics tutorials are now complete and available for everyone interested in learning the basics of Structural Engineering!
Also known as Mechanics I, this FREE university level course starts at the basics of vector addition and subtraction, and progresses through 3D statics problems, trusses, frames & machines, shear force diagrams, bending moment diagrams, and more.
The final statics section on shear force diagrams and bending moment diagrams is now complete! These tutorials introduce the positive sign convention for three different types of internal forces, and how to plot them along the length of a beam under various types of external loading.
The centroids and distributed loading section of the statics course in now complete! Learn how to locate the centroids of simple shapes, and use that knowledge to solve for reaction forces of beams under various distributed loads.
