Week 5

In Week 5 we finished looking at simply supported beams. We then looked at fixed end beams and cantilevered beams.

Week 6

In Week 6 we will finish looking at cantilvers and then summarise what we learnt about beams but then look at numerical approximations to solutions of differential equations that we cannot solve exactly.
