Edit: This post and the code have been getting quite a few hits.  If you download and use/adapt these Matlab scripts, could you comment to let me know how they are being used?


I have been playing around with using Matlab to make learning engineering concepts more interactive for a few years now and have developed a couple of programs that are both fun and educational.  One is designed to make learning how to draw beam bending moment diagrams easier and the other to visualise what the solutions to differential equations tell us. I have made them freely available here Continue reading
