Structures is by an MIT lecturer and professional structural engineer who thought there must be a better way to teach a conceptual understanding of structures with all the benefits of an iPhone or iPad.
So, instead of arrows or long descriptive paragraphs, Structures presents a wide range of images and animations all colored with the forces that are in the structure itself. Even better, the images and animations are linked so you can compare related concepts to learn more. So you ll see how arches buckle based on thrustlines that are the opposite shape of a cable, how bending moments in beams and frames are generated, and even how prestressed beams work! All the ideas build on each other and Structures guides you through it all.
Structures is the perfect app for architects, designers, artists, students, and anyone interested in learning more. You can start at the beginning or jump in anywhere and enjoy this all-visual app!
Unique and engaging presentation of the basic concepts of structural behavior.
All structural forces colored consistently throughout the app.
Covers the simplest structural concepts and takes you step-by-step through to more complex structures.
Select side-by-side comparisons that build as you move through the app, always returning you to the fundamental concepts.
