PushMePullMe 2D is an interactive application that allows planar configurations to be manipulated to help build an understanding of how different types of structures respond when under load. The user interacts with the structural model by pushing and pulling it with the mouse, while qualitative outcomes including deflections, reactions, bending moments, shear and axial forces can be visualized. Visual feedback changes in real-time as the user interacts with the model.
