Understanding Stresses in Beams

From “The Efficient Engineer”. ( YouTube / Nebula ) In this video we explore bending and shear stresses in beams. A bending moment is the resultant of bending stresses, which are normal stresses acting perpendicular to the beam cross-section. We can easily derive an equation for these bending stresses by observing how a beam deforms…

Understanding and Analysing Trusses

From “The Efficient Engineer”. ( YouTube / Nebula ) In this video we’ll take a detailed look at trusses. Trusses are structures made of up slender members, connected at joints which can be approximated to pinned connections. It is typically assumed that loads are applied to the joints of the truss, not directly to the…

Understanding the Area Moment of Inertia

From “The Efficient Engineer”.
