Structural Calculations for Beams Using Calculus via Sympy Jul 2022
Something about calculus and Sympy is lovable.
Pipe Flexibility using Julia and Jupyter Jul 2022
I compared equations from den Hartog, from Kireev et al, and from B31.3 Table D300.
The agreement was quite good.
Beam Deflections Jun 2022
I thought I should reassess and resharpen my basic structural engineering skills.
ASCE Exact Wind Integration (closed form equations) Jun 2021
I developed a Python function to calculate closed form exact values for wind forces and wind CGs.
I use only calculus — no bar charts with 0′ to 15′, 20′ to 25′, et cetera —- a curve rather than a step function. I present derivations and examples.
MIT Math Test 1876 Jan 2021
So many solutions.
PyXLL to Jupyter Interface (with video) Dec 2020
This example is an actual serious structural engineering calculation with graphical documentation.
AISC C Coefficient for Bolt Groups using Azure Jupyter Notebook Oct 2018
I decided to try out Jupyter using Microsoft Azure (currently a free trial). I’ve invested a couple of days on this project including learning new notebook extensions and Interact widgets. And so far, so good. Pros Easy to use Well-documented Relatively trouble-free Cons Could have faster response times
