Mechanics of materials : an integrated learning system

"You know you really understand an engineering subject when you can visualize it in your "mind's eye". This is especially true of the mechanics of materials, one of the most challenging subjects you'll need to master along the way to your engineering degree. In Mechanics of Materials: An Integrated Learning System, Timothy A. Philpot presents the theory and practice of mechanics of materials in a straightforward, plain-speaking, student-friendly manner that addresses the needs of varied learners without sacrificing rigor or depth in the presentation of topics." "Integrated throughout the text, MecMovies instructional software gives you extensive hands-on practice as you cover everything from stress and strain to bending, torsion, transverse shear, and combined loads. This award-winning collection of animations, tutorials, games, and examples have boon proven to increase students' performance, visualization skills, confidence level in solving problems, and interest in the subject matter."--Jacket
