Strength of Materials is a comprehensive textbook specially designed to meet the requirements of undergraduate students of engineering. The main emphasis of the text is on the understanding of the fundamental concepts and principles underlying the ...
analysis and design of structures. Beginning with basic concepts such as simple stresses and strains,the book provides an exhaustive coverage of topics such as bending moments, shear forces, bending and shear stresses, deformation inbeams, shear centre, asymmetic bending, torsion, plane stress analysis, compression members, and pin-jointed plane frames. In addition, springs, thin and thick cylinders bending of curved bars, and strain energy are covered in detail. The book also provides an introduction to the field of structural analysis by including some advanced topics such as indeterminate structural analysis. The text is well supported by a large number of illustrations. With its lucid explanation of concepts and a large number of review questions and exercise problems to supplement the text, besides engineering students, this student-friendly book would also be useful for students of diploma courses as well as those appearing fro the AMIE (Associated Member of the Institution of Engineers) examination. Features BL Includes a chapter on basic concepts to provide the necessary background BL Provides a large number of worked out examples with step-by-step solution procedures BL Provides useful tables both in the text and in the appendices for ready reference BL Reinforces theoretical concepts with a large number of review questions and exercise problems
