Table of contents


This course serves as a springboard into Engineering Solid Mechanics for new students or as a refresher for students already familiar with some of the concepts and are looking for somewhere to brush up the fundamentals.
The course covers a broad spectrum of common topics that are applicable to a wide variety of situations in numerous engineering sectors;
•Forces (including Newtons Laws)•Engineering stress and strain•Modulus of Elasticity and Poisson’s Ratio•Stiffness (Geometric)•Bending of Beams•Stresses in beam bending•Strut Buckling•Thermal expansion•Pin jointed frame works•Shearing•Torsion•Thin wall pressure vessel theoryAll of these topics are fascinating and are around the A-level to University level in terms of technical content… but don’t worry! We cover these topics in a logical order and start off simple so that we do not lose you along the way. Most videos follow the format of a discussion of the theory and then we go through a worked example. We then recommend that students have a go at the practice questions that accompany most videos so that you can put your skills to the test. There are full worked solutions so you are able to check how you perform. 
We at Learn-Ed believe that the format of “Theory – Worked example – Have a go for your self” is one of the best methods of learning – particularly the “Have a go for yourself” element.
We also try to describe various applications that each theory has to help give context as to why its interesting to learn about.
We hope to see you in our lessons!
Note: This course does not replace a formal qualification. Formal qualifications in engineering can be obtained through colleges or universities and these may be of interest to you if you enjoyed this course.

You will learn

✓ Perform some basic engineering Solid Mechanics calculations.
✓ Describe some basic engineering Solid Mechanics theories and concepts.


• A basic understanding of algebra and mathematics will help with the completion of this course, however we have provided introductory lessons at the beginning of this course to help with some mathematics topics.
• The Solid Mechanics theory starts off simple so that no prior knowledge is required!
• A note pad, pen and calculator can be handy for jotting notes and practicing questions for yourself!
• A willingness to learn!

This course is for

• Anyone who is interested in learning what Solid Mechanics is about where this course serves as a fantastic taster into what sort of work may be performed in engineering.
• Anyone who has already covered this theory before but are looking to brush up on the basic and fundamentals concepts
Learn-Ed is formed from two professionals each with Masters Degrees in mechanical engineering and each have experience in high profile professional jobs in the automotive and defense sectors. These two professionals also have a wealth of knowledge in non-engineering topics and aim to build a collection of courses to help students become skilled in a wider range of subjects.
