From what I understand, shear deformations are neglected in this course?

Yes indeed - that’s correct.

Thanks for your answer. Do you cover this in any of your other courses? Or will it be added in the future?

No I don’t have anything on this and I’m afraid I don’t have any immediate plans to add anything - the pipeline of production is already pretty full for the next 8-12 months. Just not enough time to fit everyone’s requests in unfortunately.
