MDSolids: Software to Bridge the Gap Between Lectures and Homework in Mechanics of Materials
Current educational software for the mechanics of materials course is typically presented as tutorials, worksheets, or basic analysis packages. A new software package, called MDSolids, presents an alternative to these types of products. MDSolids is conceived as a tool to help students solve and understand homework problems typically used in the mechanics of materials course. The software is versatile, graphic, informative, and very easy to use. MDSolids is being used at a number of schools around the world, and feedback from users has been uniformly positive and enthusiastic.
