Academic Use of Structural Mechanics

The most-complete understanding

What distinguishes a good engineer from a really good one? The best engineers have developed an internal understanding not only of the tools of engineering but also of the principles behind them. Structural Mechanics' unique combination of numerical and algebraic tools form a natural bridge between the analytic principles of engineering and the resulting numerical calculations. The student can see both the what and the why of the results more completely than with any other computing tool.


Dozens of prebuilt, easily customizable examples

Structural Mechanics offers dozens of prebuilt, easily customized exercises demonstrating—and letting your students interactively experiment with—important principles of mechanics. With surprisingly little effort you can create or customize exercises and even attention-grabbing lectures, giving your students invaluable experience in these vital areas.


Minimal impact on allocation of classroom time

Chances are good that your students may already be familiar with Mathematica since many of the most respected engineering schools use Mathematica as part of their core science and math curricula. Also, Structural Mechanics includes an extensive, interactive online help system to guide beginning users. Thus, only a small amount of valuable classroom and preparation time is required to get your students up and running, and you won't have to turn your lesson plans inside out to make room for Structural Mechanics.
