This course acts as a springboard into Engineering Solid Mechanics for new students or as a refresher for students currently knowledgeable about a few of the concepts and are trying to find somewhere to brush up the principles.
The course covers a broad spectrum of common topics that are applicable to a wide range of scenarios in various engineering sectors;-LRB-
- Forces (consisting of Newtons Laws)
- Engineering stress and strain
- Modulus of Elasticity and Poisson’s Ratio
- Tightness (Geometric)
- Bending of Beams
- Stresses in beam bending
- Strut Buckling
- Thermal expansion
- Pin jointed frame works
- Thin wall pressure vessel theory
All of these topics are fascinating and are around the A-level to University level in terms of technical content … however don’t fret! We cover these subjects in a rational order and start off basic so that we do not lose you along the way. Most videos follow the format of a discussion of the theory and then we go through a worked example. We then suggest that trainees attempt the practice questions that accompany most videos so that you can put your abilities to the test. There are complete worked options so you have the ability to inspect how you perform.
We at Learn-Ed believe that the format of ” Theory – Worked example – Try for your self” is among the best techniques of learning – particularly the ” Have a go for yourself” component.
We likewise try to describe numerous applications that each theory needs to assist provide context regarding why its interesting to discover.
We want to see you in our lessons!
Note: This course does not replace an official certification. Formal credentials in engineering can be gotten through colleges or universities and these might be of interest to you if you enjoyed this course.
