Course Overview

Many structures can be approximated as a straight beam or as a collection of straight beams. For this reason, the analysis of stresses and deflections in a beam is an important and useful topic.

This course discusses:

  • Constraints and boundary conditions
  • Shear force and bending moment
  • Shear and moment diagrams
  • Calculation of stresses in beams
  • Common beam deflection formulas
