Excellent ME Reference Site


This is the new Roymech website based on the original design and information from Roy Beardmore who passed away many years. The site is being updated to the latest standards, redesigned and more useful information added.

Mechanics is the study of the way matter and forces interact with each other. There are a number of disciplines that relate to mechanics e.g Biomechanics, Classical Mechanics, Continuum Mechanics, Mechatronics, Quantum Mechanics, Relativistic Mechanics etc.
The notes in this section relate to Classical and Continuum mechanics and the following areas…

  • Classical-Statics … is a field within mechanics which concerns itself with forces when no change in momentum occurs.
  • Classical-Kinematics … is a study of motion without regard to the forces present.
  • Classical-Dynamics … is a field concerned with forces and matter when a change in momentum does occur.
  • Continuum-Solid Mechanics … governs the response of solid material to applied stress

And, thank you to @Ussuri for recommending Roy’ site.

Yes, it’s an amazing free reference site. You linked to a page focusing on the theoretical part. There is a lot more on the site… I often reference the more practical stuff on that site …from the page you linked, press home and see the options under “Design” and “Components”
