Mechanics of Materials III: Beam Bending (Coursera)

This course explores the analysis and design of beam bending problems.
Prerequisite Knowledge: You will need to have successfully completed my earlier course “Mechanics of Materials I: Fundamentals of Stress and Strain and Axial Loading” in order to be successful in this course.


Week 1: Welcome; Shear Force and Bending Moment Diagrams

Week 2: Elastic Beam Bending

Week 3: Inelastic beam bending

Week 4: Shear Stresses in Beams subjected to Non-Uniform Loading

Week 5: Design of Beams
