Torsion : Derivation, assumptions and application

Find a pen or pencil on your table hold one end tightly and rotate with the other end. The pen or pencil in your hand is subjected to torque. This

Design steps for column section | IS 456: 2000

Have you ever wondered why the columns in your building are so essential? Picture the skeleton of a human body, providing structure, support, and shape. In much the same way,

Design procedure of column with uniaxial bending

A column subjected to uniaxial bending refers to a structural element that experiences bending about a single axis. In other words, the load or forces applied to the column act

Implicit vs. Explicit Solvers

In the realm of numerical simulations and computational modeling. The choice between implicit and explicit solvers plays a crucial role in determining the accuracy, stability, and efficiency of the solutions

Design of steel beams (Laterally supported)

In this article, you will learn how to design a steel beam. In the previous article, we discussed the different types of sections used as steel beams. We have also

An Introduction to Fracture Mechanics

Fracture mechanics is a branch of engineering and materials science that deals with the study of how materials behave when subjected to stresses that lead to the formation and propagation

Combined stress: Due to bending and torsion

When you push or pull on something, like a beam or a shaft, it doesn’t just bend or twist—it usually does both at the same time. We call this “combined

Poisson’s ratio | Definition, illustration, and key-points

Poisson’s ratio is a crucial concept for engineers. It helps us understand how materials respond to forces. Think of pressing on something – does it just squish down, or does

How to Design a Beam for Flexure

Welcome to Igen Plus! In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the process of designing a beam for flexure based on the loads calculated in our previous video. If

How to Calculate Load on a Beam: A Step-by-Step Guide

Welcome to EigenPlus! In this blog post, we’ll take you through the process of calculating the load on a beam. We’ll go through each step and discuss what we’ve decided
