AbstractThis evidence-based practice paper explores the use of a physical beam model and an accompanying spreadsheet that plots deflection, slope, shear, moment, and loading diagrams as teaching tools. These tools were used to reinforce engineering theory as part of a second year civil engineering statics and solid mechanics course.
