Comments:
Missing internal reactions (internal shear force, axial force, bending moments, and torque) and shear & movement (V&M) diagrams. If a student takes EM 324 at ISU, V&M diagrams will be revisited briefly, and student will be able to learn that topic at that time but might need to spend more time -and possibly get additional instructor or tutor help - than his/her peers who took EM 274 at ISU.
