Analysis Links

This site is intended to help learners master the mechanics of materials by: providing immediate feedback, enhanced visualization of the internal state, and honing calculation skills through interactive practice.

This site provides downloadable educational software for mechanics of materials to supplement textbook learning.

This site is an interactive and highly engaging problem solving experience intended to make learners comfortable and adept in applying the basic principles of Mechanics of Materials. The modules include axial loading, torsion, shear force and bending moment diagrams, load and stress calculations, beam deflections, and stress transformations.

Visual Mechanics
This site provides software designed to help learn about and analyze the behavior of beams and states of stress using active modeling and visualization.

Interactive Examples of Mechanics and Heat
This site provides interactive examples in mechanics, heat, electromagnetics, waves and quantum physics.
