Mechanics of Materials – Timothy A. Philpot – 2nd Edition


Philpot helps mechanical visualise key mechanics of materials concepts better than any text available, following a methodology while thoroughly covering all the basics. The second edition seamlessly integrates the author s award winning Mecmovies software with the chapters. It incorporates approximately 150 new problems to help learn how to apply the material. New coverage is included on singularity functions. Content has also been revised throughout the text to provide with the latest information in the field.

Automatically graded problems, many with algorithmically generated values, enable students to practice and master the topics and concepts. In addition, relevant and timely learning resources provide students with the tools they need to better understand key concepts and succeed in the and in their careers.
