LM-ST-1 1 Learning Module 1 Static Structural Analysis Title Page Guide What is a Learning Module? A Learning Module (LM) is a structured, concise, and self-sufficient learning resource. An LM provides the learner with the required content in a precise and concise manner, enabling the learner to learn more efficiently and effectively. It has a number of characteristics that distinguish it from a traditional textbook or textbook chapter: An LM is learning objective driven, and its scope is clearly defined and bounded. The module is compact and precise in presentation, and its core material contains only contents essential for achieving the learning objectives. Since an LM is inherently concise, it can be learned relatively quickly and efficiently. An LM is independent and free-standing. Module-based learning is therefore non- sequential and flexible, and can be personalized with ease. Presenting the material in a contained and precise fashion will allow the user to learn effectively, reducing the time and effort spent and ultimately improving the learning experience. This is the first module on structural analysis and covers a static structural study in FEM. It goes through all of the steps necessary to successfully complete an analysis, including geometry creation, material selection, boundary condition specification, meshing, solution, and validation. These steps are first covered conceptually and then worked through directly as they are applied to an example problem. Estimated Learning Time for This Module Estimated learning time for this LM is equivalent to three 50-minute lectures, or one week of study time for a 3 credit hour course. How to Use This Module The learning module is organized in sections. Each section contains a short explanation and a link to where that section can be found. The explanation will give you an idea of what content is in each section. The link will allow you to complete the parts of the module you are interested in, while being able to skip any parts that you might already be familiar with. The modularity of the LM allows for an efficient use of your time.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
