Lecture 1 Dynamic Loads, Earthquake & Plate Tectonics [Structural Mechanics]

Structural mechanics, or solid mechanics, is a field of applied mechanics in which you compute deformations, stresses, and strains in solid materials.

Often, the purpose is to determine the strength of a structure, such as a bridge girder, beams, columns etc. in order to prevent damage or accidents.
