New Tutorial Published - Virtual Work for Truss Analysis

Hi All,

I just wanted to let you know that I’ve just published a new tutorial on the website, How to Apply the Virtual Work Method to Trusses.

This obviously won’t be relevant for everybody, but virtual work is one of those topics a lot of students struggle with so I thought it worth putting a tutorial out.

After discussing the underlying theory and tying it together with a worked example, we use the DegreeTutors online truss calculator to validate our results. This way, you can come up with your own practice questions and check you’re not making mistakes by confirming your answers online.

The tutorial article has a couple of embedded videos too if you prefer to watch instead of reading.

I hope those of you that have started working through the new cable analysis courses are enjoying them!

Speak soon,
