Building Across—Beams and Bending

Lecture no. 6 from the course: Understanding the World's Greatest Structures

Building Across—Beams and Bending

Taught by Professor Stephen Ressler | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Beams, combining tension and compression, are central to the second aspiration supported by engineering: building across long distances. As you survey beams from the primitive lintel over the Lion Gate at Mycenae to Norway's Raftsundet Bridge, you'll investigate scientific developments and transform your understanding of what makes this structural element possible.
