Description

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.

  • Additional material on shear stress in beams:  Two new sections have been added in Chapter 9 to discuss additional topics related to shear stress in beams.  These sections are:
    • 9.9 Shear Stress and Shear Flow in Thin-Walled Members
    • 9.10 Shear Centers of Thin-Walled Open Sections
  • New coverage of energy methods:  Chapter 17 – Energy Methods has been developed to discuss the application of work and strain energy principles, virtual work principles, and Castigliano’s Theorem to solid mechanics problems.
  • Updated coverage to match the latest standards:  Design equations in Chapter 16 for the critical buckling stress of structural steel columns have been updated to conform to the latest provisions of ANSI/AISC 360-10 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings.
  • New and revised homework problems: More than 40% of the problems are new or revised, broadening the variety of problems available for many topics.
  • Communicating visually: The illustrations use color, shading, perspective, and dimension to clearly convey concepts while striving to place these concepts in the context of real world components and objects.  These illustrations have been prepared by an engineer to train future engineers.
  • MecMovies: The text integrates computer based instruction into the traditional textbook format with the addition of the MecMovies instructional software.
  • Problem-solving schema: The textbook and software include a number of multimedia features aimed at helping students organize and categorize the Mechanics of Materials concepts and problem-solving procedures. 
  • Style and clarity of examples: This textbook places great emphasis on the presentation and quality of example problems.  The commentary explains why various steps are taken and describes the rationale for each step in a solution process while the illustrations help build the mental imagery needed to transfer the concepts to differing situations.
  • Homework philosophy: This textbook includes over 1,300 homework problems in a range of difficulty.
