In this tutorial, students will be assuming the role of a service engineer representing a tow truck company. It is their responsibility to certify if it is safe to proceed with any operations.

In order to determine if it is safe to proceed, they will be required to apply the concepts learned in the classroom, such as the forces in equilibrium, moments and friction, to the given situation.

Students are placed in the shoes of an engineer working for a Bridge Inspection Company and it is their first day on the job. Their first task is to inspect a suspension bridge that is made up of 3 sections. The task will include simple Engineering Mechanics calculations that include reactions, shear, bending moment and loads. They begin by inspecting a Pin-Jointed Cantilever Beam fixed at one end and supported by a cable at the other. It is their job to test the cable supporting it to see if it will fail when a car drives across the bridge.

This tutorial will take you through the process and considerations used in the design of two common mechanical components, shafts and flywheels. The first part will refresh your memory on the engineering design process and its steps, in order to set the scene. The second and third tasks will involve you going through the steps to design an appropriate shaft and flywheel for a group project, finally you will iterate your design based on additions made.

In this tutorial students will be designing the longitudinal structure of a barge.

A barge is a flat-bottomed vessel used to transport heavy goods.

A long and slender barge can be treated as a beam with a constant cross section with external forces acting on it. These forces will include; cargo loads, weight of the barge and the buoyancy force.

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.
