Today buildings, structures and machines are almost always designed by computer-generated diagrams of internal forces. One of the skills required by an engineer is to verify the results of an analysis and to spot internal force diagrams that can not be right. This is why the "Schnittkraftmeister" was conceived: Students get an idea of internal force diagrams by playful learning.
Given is a structure under a static external load. Three different solutions for the diagram of internal forces are shown, but only one is correct. The faster the correct answer is chosen the more points are given. Be careful, when choosing a wrong solution, the game is over and all points for the current level are lost!
This serious game is for persons, who have a basic knowledge in structural analysis and of external and internal forces in structures. The target audience are aspiring civil or mechanical engineers.

Good brain game. Perhaps add option to subtract points for incorrect answer, end game at 0 points or finish all levels?
Brain bending (and shearing, and straining)
It's frustrating, it's brutal, it makes my brain hurt. This is my favorite game EVER, and would be even if it weren't helping me study for my statics class. Absolutely perfect! Getting thrown back to the beginning reenforces basics until they become automatic, and the levels grow more challenging just fast enough to not feel like being spoon fed material.
I'd love to see more hard core learning games by these authors, they have a true grasp of how to make ideas like this work.
New favorite game! Or is it...?
Because how can force/moment diagrams possibly be used in a game, but here it is! I play all the time now, and love that I'm also gaining a better understanding of how to identify the internal force curve diagrams. This is awesome, thank you SO much! I hope you have more "games" for us engi-nerds who can't get enough. Also, it's helping me get faster for the PE review, and I can do it anywhere.
