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.
What's New in Version 3.1
- Fixed a bug preventing the App to start properly.
Good brain game. Perhaps add option to subtract points for incorrect answer, end game at 0 points or finish all levels?
Crashed & new suggestion
Hi it is one of the best and useful apps that I have seen. Unfortunately it crashed after updating 1 mar 2016. Correct it pls. It dosen't start. I installed it two times but it has a problem in starting it gives you a black or white screen. I am so dissapointed for loosing such magnificent app. Fix it please.
The most important problem in this app is " there is no instructions to define the possitive directions in coordinate for plot and decide the directions of momentum, shear and normal forces in a text " so u make mistakes in answers in possetive or negetive and the time for answering also is too short. Thanks a lot
This is my second note after working with this app : In my country the original text books are Beer Johnson,Merriam & Aslam Kasi mali. Unfortunately in these books the possitive direction of z axis is upward & vise versa to your appIication.After 17 years working as an engineer it is too hard for me and others like me to change our minds in answering in opposite direction. As I and other friends of mine do insist to work and practice with your magnificent application
We suggest to add an option for changing the Possitive direction of Axises for each player therefore your app will be the most scientific & useful one in the appstore & It will be a 5 star app. please please please complete your valuable product. We are looking forward to your changes. thank you again.
