An image showing the Flash animation logo SWF Flash logo is a link to a Flash animation.

Flash animations are embedded into the pages of all my D&T Modules but there are pictorial links to the animations on this web site so that devices that cannot play Flash animations will at least show a jpeg screenshot of the animation.

If your PC or personal digital assistant (PDA) can play Flash animations you may click on an image showing the Flash animation logo SWF Flash logo to view the animation in a new window.
(Your browser may require you to click "Allow Blocked Content" to view the animation). See info about viewing Flash animations.


Everything that is made from resistant materials has some form of structure.  

A product has a shell structure when the strength of the structure comes from the product's shell or casing.
The strength of a structure depends on many things, including:

  • the design of the structure
  • the type of materials used in the structure
  • the thickness of the shell
  • The way that parts of the shell structure have been fixed together.
