I will most likely not continue working on the project through MATLAB. However, I am working on a website,, which will incorporate the apps here, and hopefully much more. Here is the GitHub repository:

When running "Click_Me", a user can select from a menu of seven apps within the main app: pure bending, torsion, stresses in beam, stress transformations, anticlastic bending, stress and strain relations, and superposition. For each app the user can control conditions such as loading, geometry, material properties and display and the visual will update in real time. Equations which are linked to the visual help connect the visual with the quantitative.
