The development and/or adaptation of computer systems through computer graphics resources and object-oriented languages, like C++ and Java, have been shown to be substantially important in building tools that aid the process of teaching and learning, as they enable both the student and the teacher to explore the essential elements of typical engineering problems, such as shape, configuration and structural behavior. The development of these tools requires, in addition to the resources already mentioned, the use of sophisticated data structures and algorithms that enable the modeling, perception, and solution of these problems. Thus, this paper presents a robust data structure, called HeDcpp, originally written in the C++ language, which can be used as a basis for computer programs aimed at engineering education, addresses the physical problem of form as realistically as possible, assists in learning lessons, and makes classes much more productive and motivating. Some application examples are presented
