- Week 1 - Welcome
- Week 1 - Deflections and Statically Indeterminate Beam Structures
In this section, we will learn how calculate the deflections, or deformations, of engineering structures subjected to loads. We will then use those techniques is solving statically indeterminate beam problems
- Week 2 - Column Buckling, Combined Loading, & Failure Theories
In this section, we will learn how to analyze and design for column buckling. We will also learn how to analyze and design engineering structures subjected to combined loading. Finally, we will conclude with failure theories in mechanics of materials.
