After a very long hiatus, a new section is up in the linear algebra course covering vector combinations and span. There is about a 5 year gap between the publishing dates of video #25 and #26, whoops. Oh well, I'm back at it again with linear algebra and hope to finish off the set this month. Here are the new videos:
I created 49 free Structural Analysis tutorials that focus on beam bending concepts. The course begins with a review of shear force and bending moment diagrams, and then goes on to cover the double integration method, method of superposition, moment area method, slope deflection method, 3 moment equation, and the force method! There are tons of detailed explanations and worked examples to help you better understand and grasp Structural Analysis.
The final section in the Structural Analysis course is now complete, it's on the force method. This is a great method for solving one degree statically indeterminate structures. It's an awful way to solve structures that are 2+ degrees indeterminate. This is pretty evident by the one degree example taking under 10 minutes to solve, and the two degree example taking 40 minutes (split into 3 parts). Unfortunately, at some point in your life, you are probably going to be asked to solve a two degree statically indeterminate structure with the force method, and because of that, I slogged my way through example #2.
Learn how to solve statically and kinematically indeterminate beams with the slope deflection method with these structural analysis tutorials. These problems are typically pretty long, so the examples are split into 3 parts each:
We've got 4 new tutorials up in our structural analysis course on the method of superposition! These lessons go over some statically determinate beam problems, and show how to use the method of superposition while looking up common table values for slope and deflection:
We recently created 53 free Mechanics of Materials tutorials that together form a whole course. The course begins with introducing stress and strain, and then goes on to cover torsion, pure bending, composite materials, beam deflection, energy methods, and columns! There are tons of detailed explanations and worked examples to help you better understand and grasp Mechanics of Materials.
