MDSolids is software for topics taught in the Mechanics of Materials course (also commonly called Strength of Materials or Mechanics of Deformable Solids). This course is typically a part of civil, mechanical, and aerospace engineering programs and a number of related programs. The software also features a number of modules for topics taught in the Statics course.

MDSolids consists of routines for beams and flexural members, torsional assemblies, axial assemblies, trusses, columns, pressure vessels, section properties, Mohr's circle analysis (including stress transformations and strain transformations), and many more topics.

For over a decade, MDSolids has been meeting the needs of students and engineering professionals. These users will tell you that no engineering software is easier to use or more versatile. Please have a look at the features of MDSolids to discover what this software can do for you.

MDSolids runs in Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and all prior versions of Windows. Download MDSolids and try it free-of-charge.

Mechanics of Materials: An Integrated Learning System, 4th Ed.

If you like MDSolids, you'll love my textbook Mechanics of Materials: An Integrated Learning System, 4th Ed., published by John Wiley Sons, Inc.. It features the MecMovies software and a great WileyPLUS interactive online teaching and learning environment that engages engineering students with course material beyond the classroom. There's also a paperback SI version that is available for adoption outside of the United States.

In WileyPLUS, automatically graded problems, most with algorithmically generated values, enable students to practice and master the topics and concepts taught in the Mechanics of Materials course. In addition, relevant and timely learning resources provide students with the tools they need to better understand key concepts and succeed in the course and in their careers.
