Lecture 5 EQUIVALENT STATIC LOAD METHOD | Part 3

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.
