    Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong place.

    I'm currently enrolled in my HNC in mechanical engineering.

    I was wondering if there are any online resources that can help me with my studies, particularly the science aspect of the course.

    I'm currently stuck on my first assignment, i'm not having trouble per say as i have the majority completed.

    The part of the assignment that i am stuck with is the bending moment calculations, as all of the examples i have done in class work do not contain an overhang whereas my assignment question does.

    Would anyone have any advice on bending moments?

    There is a lot of information on the internet about bending moments, as well as textbooks. It's a case of looking until you find something relevant, in a style you like. When I was covering bending moments (and anything related to solid mechanics, really), I never purchased or used any textbooks as I found my notes sufficient.

    Recently I have been using an old copy of Mechanical Technology, D H Bacon and R C Stephens, from Butterworths, probably the first edition from the '70s. It was lying about in a box in my loft, I have no complaints about it, and it covers much of the mechanical syllabus.

    Your college/educational provider should be able to provide some recommendations too.

    You could also post the questions here, too, as some people may be able to help.
