"I absolutely loved this course! She is a fantastic teacher, very easy to listen to and the information is taught in a methodical and easy to understand way. I feel very ready to move on to bigger things now." - Cherilyn B. 

The Mechanics of Watercolor Painting is a step-by-step course designed to guide students through all the necessary skills needed to paint with watercolor paints. Using her approachable, easy-to-understand teaching method and lots of hands-on activities, artist Jill Poyerd walks viewers through a total of nearly four hours of lectures and over 30 student activities, covering topics like brush handling, color mixing, paint application, and much much more.

We begin by learn all about your workspace. It’s important to have all of your tools readily available when you work. Then we discuss the many aspects of brushes, from how to physically handle a brush to how to properly dilute your paints. 

Next, the course focuses on how to mix your paints and how to get acquainted with your specific selection of colors. 

And finally, once we have a solid knowledge base, we learn about the three different application methods - controlled, semi-controlled, and uncontrolled paint application. We close the course with a watercolor painting demonstration so students can understand how it can all be put into practice.

This course is one of the most comprehensive classes you will find online related to learning how to use watercolors. It’s primarily aimed at the beginning painter, but it can apply to anyone who feels they may be lacking something in their knowledge when they paint in this medium.

What is Statics and how will it help me?

Statics is typically the first engineering mechanics course taught in university-level engineering programs.  It is the study of objects that are either at rest, or moving with a constant velocity.  Statics is important in the development of problem solving skills.  It teaches you to think about how forces and bodies act and react to one another.  You learn how to analyze word problems, pull out the important information and then solve. 

One of the most important aspects of this course is the use of free body diagrams.  Free body diagrams (FBDs) are used endlessly in many engineering courses and this course is where you will perfect your FBD drawing skills. The material and thought processes learned in this class will be of great benefit to you in any other application where you are analyzing relationships between objects and applying math concepts.

Why is this course better than the others?

Have you ever been in a class and been frustrated by the lack of fully-worked examples? This will not be that class.  I understand the frustration - I used to feel the same way.  Because of that, I teach my classes in a way that I would've preferred as a student.  Handwritten notes, simple explanations, and plenty of examples in a variety of difficulty levels.  You will not find PowerPoint slides here. To test your knowledge there are exams.  In case you get stuck, video solutions are provided. I also don't assume you know more than you do - we'll start with the basics and work our way up to more complex material.

What will I learn in this course?

Some of the topics we will cover:

- Vector and scalar operations

- Cartesian vectors

- Projection of a force along a line

- Free body diagrams

- 2-D and 3-D equilibrium for particles and rigid bodies

- Moments of forces

- Couple moments

- Methods of joints and sections

- Centroids

- Moments of inertia

- and more!

What do I need to know before starting?

The typical prerequisites for this class are Physics 1 and Calculus.  We will be using a few derivatives and integrals so you should be familiar with those concepts. We will cover everything else you need.

Is there a recommended textbook?

I, along with most students I've taught, really like the Engineering Mechanics - Statics text by Hibbeler.  If you don't already have a textbook this one would be a great resource, although it is not required for this course.

The course covers a broad spectrum of common topics that are applicable to a wide variety of situations in numerous engineering sectors;

  • Forces (including Newtons Laws)
  • Engineering stress and strain
  • Modulus of Elasticity and Poisson's Ratio
  • Stiffness (Geometric)
  • Bending of Beams
  • Stresses in beam bending
  • Strut Buckling
  • Thermal expansion
  • Pin jointed frame works
  • Shearing
  • Torsion
  • Thin wall pressure vessel theory

All of these topics are fascinating and are around the A-level to University level in terms of technical content... but don't worry! We cover these topics in a logical order and start off simple so that we do not lose you along the way. Most videos follow the format of a discussion of the theory and then we go through a worked example. We then recommend that students have a go at the practice questions that accompany most videos so that you can put your skills to the test. There are full worked solutions so you are able to check how you perform. 

We at Learn-Ed believe that the format of "Theory - Worked example - Have a go for your self" is one of the best methods of learning - particularly the "Have a go for yourself" element.

We also try to describe various applications that each theory has to help give context as to why its interesting to learn about.

We hope to see you in our lessons!

Note: This course does not replace a formal qualification. Formal qualifications in engineering can be obtained through colleges or universities and these may be of interest to you if you enjoyed this course.

Students: 669, Price:  Free

This is the basic course on the chapter - Equilibrium.

The contents of this course are:

1) Definition of Equilibrium - In classical mechanics, a particle is in mechanical equilibrium if the net force on that particle is zero.

2) Free Body Diagram - Free-body diagrams are diagrams used to show the relative magnitude and direction of all forces acting upon an object in a given situation.

3) Lami's Theorem - When three forces acting at a point are in equilibrium, then each force is proportional to the sine of the angle between the other two forces.

4) Conditions of Equilibrium - ∑Fx=0, ∑Fy=0, translational equilibrium, ∑M=0, rotational equilibrium. The above three equations should be satisfied for 2D Equilibrium of the body. So in total there are three conditions of equilibrium for two dimensional cases and six conditions of equilibrium for three dimensional cases.

5) Problem on Equilibrium

6) Types of supports - i) Simple support (sliding support and roller support), ii) Hinge support or pin support, iii) Fixed support

7) Types of beams - i) Simply supported beam, ii) Cantilever beam, iii) Fixed beam, iv) Continuous beam, v) Overhanging beam

8) Types of loading - i) Concentrated load or Point load, ii) Uniformly Distributed Load (U. D. L.) or Rectangular Loading, iii) Uniformly Varying Load (U. V. L.) or Triangular Loading.

This course covers the following topics that are generally found in a university-level Intro to Fluids class:

  • Lagrangian and Eulerian Descriptions

  • Velocity and Acceleration Fields

  • Continuity Equation

  • Navier Stokes

  • Stream Function

  • Vorticity and Irrotationality

  • Velocity Potential

  • Dimensional Analysis & Buckingham Pi Theorem

  • Intro to Laminar and Turbulent Flow

  • And more!

Here's what you get when you enroll

  • Lifetime access to the course

  • Easy to follow, on-demand lecture videos

  • Plenty of fully-worked examples in a variety of difficulty levels

  • Downloadable outline of notes to help you create an organized set of notes and to help you follow along

What's the format of the course?

Let me just say that I hate engineering courses taught with PowerPoint slides. Due to this, you will not find slides here.

I think people learn better when they have to write the material. That means the majority of my lectures are handwritten. I give you a brief outline of notes to help you follow along and to help minimize the length of the videos.

Speaking of video length... am I the only one who doesn't like watching hour-long lecture videos? I didn't think so.

To eliminate that frustration my lectures are broken up into shorter segments, typically 12-15 minutes.

And if you are here for examples, I made them easy to find. Almost all the examples are in their own videos, that way you can look through the notes and pick and choose which ones you want to watch.

This course starts with a theoretical overview of 3D equations of motion applied for aircraft simulations. In this initial topic, a classical mechanics overview with a review of aerodynamics will provide the theoretical base for the second section. The student will understand how to interpret the aerodynamic derivatives and a discussion on typical values for each aerodynamic derivative will be done.

In the second section, we will cover Matlab & Simulink Intro and start the modeling of a generic complete aircraft. This final model will be used for trim analysis, aircraft dynamic modes estimation, simulation and can also be used for control law design, flight control sizing and design and many more. You can also try to modify the aerodynamic and mass data to analyze your own aircraft designs.

Finally, in the last section, we will cover the process for Part 25 aircraft certification. If you don't know what Part 25 is, don't worry, together we will learn all aspects of current regulations. We will cover all the way from understanding the requirements and how to demonstrate compliance with them up to the flight test campaign and maneuvers used in real aircraft certification regarding flying qualities.

This course is filled with real examples and is a more hands-on approach for a flight mechanics engineer.

Mechanics of Materials is the primary course for  mechanical engineering and is used in the design of structures and machines.

A thorough understanding of the foundational concepts of the subject is important to for mechanical design whether it be designing a single structure which has to take loads or whether it is designing an elaborate Transmission systems which is undergoing dynamic loading conditions.  Mechanics of materials concepts are cornerstone of any type of mechanical design .

In this course we will be covering the following concepts :

  1. Introduction to Machine design - What is nature of machine design ? What does it include ? What is the engineering design process?

  2. Importance of analysis of strength and difference between strength and stress

  3. Essential basics of engineering statics - Method of statics, Free body diagrams, Force equilibrium , types of joints

  4. primary types of loading- Normal and shear

  5. What is Bearing stress

  6. Explanation of Stress and strain relations with Tensile test and its inferences along with definitions of tensile strength , yield strength .

  7. Hookes law

  8. Shear Stress strain relations and Shear stress in Shafts undergoing action of torque- Torsion.

  9. What is Poissons' Ratio

  10. Analysis of Axially loaded member and what is stress concentration

  11. Analysis of Stress in Oblique plane for axially loaded member

  12. What is Pure bending ? Derivation of governing equations .

  13. What is Area moment of Inertia

  14. Analysis of Beams and deriving shear force and Bending moment diagrams

  15. Two Plane bending in shafts

  16. Stress concentration in Bending

  17. Analysis of Shaft in torsion and derivation of Governing equations

  18. Solid vs Hollow shafts

  19. Stress concentration in Shafts

  20. Multi axial Loading , Dilatation and Bulk Modulus

  21. State of Stress and Stress transformations

  22. Analysis of Thin walled pressure vessels

  23. What is Principal stress and derivation of Mohrs' Circle

  24. Comparison of plane of Principal stress and Maximum Shear

The course covers the Theoretical basics required to design standard  elements in structures and machines.

Aim of the course is to build a strong well rooted understanding of the concepts rather than just mere application of formulae.

A good engineer knows the underlying assumptions of each formula they use in application and hence knowing the mathematical back ground is very important for effective design.

This course aims to mathematically motivate both Quantum Mechanics (QM) and Quantum field Theory (QFT). The first part is devoted to the most important concepts and equations of QM, whereas the second part deals with QFT.

Due to the conceptual and mathematical difficulty of these subjects, some prerequisites to this course are unavoidably required. The student should be familiar with:

1) the Fourier Series and Transform;

2) Multivariable Calculus;

3) Probability theory and random variables;

4)  Classical Physics;

5) Complex Calculus (especially residues and calculation of integrals on a contour), although this is necessary only for some parts of the course devoted to QFT;

6) Special Relativity and tensors for QFT.

Note 1: the first few prerequisites might be enough if you are interested only in the first part of the course, which is related to QM (consider that this course has tens of hours' worth of material, you might be interested only in some parts);

Note 2: I'm more than willing to reply if you have doubts/need clarifications, or -why not- have any recommendations to improve the quality of the course.

Note 3: I'll still keep editing the videos (for example by adding notes) to make the video-lectures as clear as possible.

Mechanics 1 Concepts: Advanced Level Mathematics

Mechanics 1 is part of Advanced Level Mathematics. It has four topics: 1 - Kinematics of motion in a Straight Line, 2 - Forces and Equilibrium, 3 - Newton's Laws of Motion and 4 - Work Energy & Power. In this course, I have put emphasis on the understanding of main concepts in mechanics 1 which, in my opinion, poses greatest difficulties to students as they prepare for their Advanced Level Mathematics certification. Each topic has several videos where I will teach you a specific concept in mechanics 1. I start each video by outlining clearly the concept you will learn by the end of the video. At the end of each video, you will download the Video Deconstruction Document (VDD) which will help you to understand what I have just taught in the video. 

To understand mechanics 1 concepts you do not necessarily need to have studied physics although this will give you an edge over other students. All I need from you is to identify the mechanics 1 concept that I will be teaching you and then do plenty of practice on them. So in my video I may repeatedly mention a concept in mechanics 1. This is intentional as it is meant to ensure that you understand the concept.
