The PDF files posted below are created in Mathematica, with figures created in PowerPoint. At this time the collection of examples is limited but new material is steadily posted. The idea is that, with time, this page will provide help with understanding the material in the courses CIVL 332, CIVL 435, and CIVL 518 taught at UBC Vancouver.
