|MDSolids is educational software for students taking the Mechanics of Materials course (also commonly called Strength of Materials or Mechanics of Deformable Solids). This course is typically a part of civil, mechanical, and aerospace engineering programs and a number of related programs.|
|The software features educational routines for beams, flexure, torsion members, columns, axial structures, statically indeterminate structures, trusses, section properties, and Mohr's circle analysis including stress transformations and strain transformations.|
|MDSolids was a winner of the 1998 Premier Award for Excellence in Engineering Education Courseware.|
MDSolids requires Windows 95/98/2000/XP or Windows NT 4 and at least SVGA resolution (800 x 600). This fully-functional version is shareware. It may be used free-of-charge for a 30-day evaluation period.
|Be sure to look for MDSolids in the Wiley engineering textbook Mechanics of Materials, 2nd Edition, by Roy R. Craig, Jr.||
