Shear Force and Bending Moment

By Gangadhara Prusty      Tags Shear Force and Bending Mement Diagrams Solid Mechanics

In this adaptive tutorial, students will be guided through the steps required to draw the Shear Force Diagram (SFD) and Bending Moment Diagram (BMD).

They will then be able to determine the Maximum Shear Force and Bending Maximum Moment from the diagrams as well as the Zero Shear Location and Point of Contra-flexure.

2D Mohr's Circle

By Gangadhara Prusty      Tags Solid Mechanics

The Mohr's Circle aids in the visualisation of the stresses on various planes through a point in a stressed body, and can be is used to determine stresses acting on any plane passing through a point. In this Adaptive Tutorial, the user will be able to accurately plot a 2D Mohr's circle by using a graphing tool.

3D Mohr's Circle

By Gangadhara Prusty      Tags Solid Mechanics

Based on the 2D Mohr's Circle fundamentals, this Adaptive Tutorial takes the user further into the 3D Mohr's Circle construction. This would allow to distinguish the three principal stresses and absolute maximum shear stress graphically.

Torsion

By Gangadhara Prusty      Tags Solid Mechanics

The effect of torque is of primary concern in the design of drive shafts or axles in machinery. The objective of this Adaptive Tutorial is to work through the aspects of internal torque, torsional shear stress and the angle of twist along the drive shafts or axles.
