Mechanics of Materials
In Mechanics of Materials, 3rd Edition, Timothy A. Philpot presents the theory and practice of mechanics of materials in a straight-forward, plain-speaking, student-friendly manner that addresses the learning styles of today's students without sacrificing rigor or depth in the presentation of topics. Unique to this book is the integration of MecMovies. This award-winning instructional software package created by the author provides extensive hands-on practice and feedback to students as they become familiar with a wide variety of concepts and applications, from stress and strain to bending, torsion, transverse shear, and combined loads. The animations, tutorials, games, and examples within MecMovies have been proven to increase students' performance, visualization skills, confidence level in solving problems, and overall interest in the subject matter.
