Mechanics of Materials: An Integrated Learning System, 4th Edition

By Timothy A. Philpot

Mechanics of Materials: An Integrated Learning System helps engineering students visualize key mechanics of materials concepts better than any other course available, following a sound problem-solving methodology while thoroughly covering all the basics. This course retains seamless integration with the author’s award-winning MecMovies software, demonstration videos to illuminate core concepts, and problem-solving videos to help students build their critical thinking skills. Content has been thoroughly revised throughout the course to provide students with the latest information in the field.

The next generation of WileyPLUS for Mechanics of Materials gives instructors the freedom and flexibility to tailor content and easily manage their course to keep students engaged and on track.

Students apply concepts and receive immediate feedback.

Over 160 MecMovies Instructional Software with Interactive Animations are included, most of which provide detailed example problems. About 80 of these animations are interactive and include key considerations, calculation details, and intermediate results.

Students build their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Demonstration Videos illuminate core concepts and illustrate solid problem-solving strategies.

Videos demonstrate for students problem-solving techniques.

Problem-Solving Videos give students step-by-step guidance on how to approach solutions to example problems.
