﻿ Calculators for Mechanical Engineers | MechaniCalc

Below is a categorized listing of the engineering calculators, along with the instructions, reference material, and validation for each calculator.

### Structural Mechanics

##### Beam Analysis

The beam calculator allows for the analysis of stresses and deflections in straight beams.

##### 2D FEA

The 2D Finite Element Analysis (FEA) calculator can be used to analyze any structure that can be modeled with 2D beams.

##### Bolted Joint Analysis

The bolted joint calculator allows for stress analysis of a bolted joint, accounting for preload, applied axial load, and applied shear load.

The bolt torque calculator can be used to calculate the torque required to achieve the desired preload on a bolted joint.

##### Bolt Pattern Force Distribution

The bolt pattern calculator allows for applied forces to be distributed over bolts in a pattern.

##### Lug Analysis

The lug calculator allows for analysis of lifting lugs under axial, transverse, or oblique loading.

##### Column Buckling

The column buckling calculator allows for buckling analysis of long and intermediate-length columns loaded in compression.

##### Mohr's Circle

The Mohr's circle calculator provides an intuitive way of visualizing the state of stress at a point in a loaded material.

##### Stress-Strain Curve

The stress-strain curve calculator allows for the calculation of the engineering stress-strain curve of a material.

##### Cross Section Builder

The cross section builder allows for the calculation of properties for a custom cross section.

##### Stress Concentration Factors

The stress concentration calculator provides a set of interactive plots for common stress concentration factors.

### Failure Mechanisms

##### Fracture Mechanics

The fracture mechanics calculator allows for fracture analysis of a cracked part.

##### Fatigue Crack Growth

The fatigue crack growth calculator allows for fatigue crack growth analysis of a cracked part.

### Math

##### Unit Conversion

The unit conversion calculator allows for conversion between various units, with a focus on engineering units.
