Course Description

274-What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures - Part D - Bending Strength Of Materials

Written in an easy to understand style, the course What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures - Part D - Bending Strength of Materials is the fourth course in the series of courses in the field of study called engineering mechanics. This course focuses on presenting intuitive methods for the understanding of basic principles of forces and stresses in beams. And solutions to basic problems with simplified methods of calculations. The course contains 19 solved example problems and additional drawings to illustrate the principles discussed.

Part D Includes:

  • Cross sectional properties of structural members including defining and determining the Moment of Inertia and Section Modulus of a cross section.
  • Torsional stresses and deformations of rods and shafts.
  • Shear and bending moment diagrams of beams.
  • Bending stresses in loaded beams.
  • Shear stresses in loaded beams.

The first two courses in the series, titled What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures - Part A – Statics Fundamentals and What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures - Part B – Statics Applications focused on solving problems related to the exterior (or externally) applied loads on a stationary body - a body at rest. The third course in the series, titled What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures - Part C – Axial Strength of Materials, focuses on what happens inside a structural member, including stresses and strains, axial deformation, factors of safety, thermal deformations, and properties of cross sectional areas.

It is expected that you have a good background in the material covered in the three previous courses. If you do not, consider taking the three SunCam courses for Part A, Part B, and Part C.

Loads, Supports, and Assumptions – A Quick Review is a zero credit course intended for those who might find themselves a bit rusty and would like a quick refresher. The information in the course is useful for application to the solution of structural problems especially in the fields of statics and strength of materials. This quick review course is free and can be downloaded: Supports PDF.

FYI. On Q #2, answer D should be removed as it looks to be in contrast to answer E

274-What Every Engineer Should Know About Structures - Part D - Bending Strength Of Materials is a good basic course for review. It kept me on my toes, reinforced my existing knowledge and "reinvented" stuff I either had forgotten or was rusty with. The there always decimal places and radii versus diameter types of things.

Review was well written and test questions were fair. I am teaching a similar course in high school, so this review was very helpful and gave me some additional ideas for material that should be covered.

After now completing all four of the courses in "What every engineer should know about structures", and having spent 25 years in HVAC design/engineering, I find that reviewing this material long ago would have been a real aid in my daily work. I have a much better appreciation for structural drawings that must be coordinated with, and a better feeling for what's happening in the suspension members that support mechanical equipment. Thanks again, Professor Glon!

Very good course of basic engineering bending. Examples were very clear and test was good at highlighting the main concepts discussed in course. I hope he has more. Parts A thru C were just as good.
