## 15 thoughts on “Exams”

1. Everest Snyder says:

Will shear and moment diagrams (Lectures 13-14) be covered on exam 1?

1. Alex Chortos says:

Yes. The first midterm goes up to Lecture 14.

1. Lukas Karim Hessini says:

The coverage is lecture 15-24/25 (the furthest that is covered is DETERMINATE castigliano's theorem problems; This includes homework 6-8 I believe and it isn't cumulative but you will still need to use knowledge on this exam that was used in the first exam.

2. Zachary Zalewski says:

Suppose I have a horizontal beam and I need to make two cuts along its length to use Castigliano. I know that for the first cut, I can choose to consider everything to the left of the cut or everything to the right of the cut. It doesn't matter. But for the second cut, am I free to choose what to consider, or must I consider the side of the beam that encompasses the first cut?

1. Catherine Nicole Kosiba says:

I would recommend choosing the side that encompasses the first cut to avoid having to solve for any more reactions than necessary

3. Richard Lu says:

Will we be expected to derive deflection curves for individual components without the aid of the superposition table?

1. gschalm says:

No I don't think so, my professor told us we would be provided superposition tables if needed but we don't need to memorize it or know how to derive the equations.

4. Richard Lu says:

Will Mohr's Circle be covered on the exam?

5. Will indeterminate structures/redundant forces be on the exam or just dummy forces?

6. Lauren Firoz says:

Will the content on the final be cumulative or will it be on the material after Exam 2?

7. Surya Gopi says:

Will the final exam cover each section of the course equally, or will it cover more of what we learned after exam 2?

8. Surya Gopi says:

Has the date of the final exam been released yet?

1. Lauren Firoz says:

Yes, it is on Monday December 13, at 10:30 AM
