Solids (Srength of Materials) Review

   Statics and Dynamics dictate how bodies react or move when subjected to external forces.   Solids deals with how these externally applied loads are carried internally in the body , i.e  what kind and magnitude of stresses and strains are created.  The simplest models assume that states of tension, bending and shear or combinations are created.  These videos covers bars in tension, beams in bending, shafts in torsion, thin walled pressure vessels, column buckling and two dimensional stress states.
