Book Description

Developed from the author’s lectures and years of teaching experience, this book presents the principles behind the methods of solving problems on material behavior when subjected to different types of loads. It elucidates the subject in simple language, lucidly and clearly, to enable students to comprehend the principles involved. Each chapter deals with definitions, analysis of problems involved, derivations and applications. It contains more than 380 worked examples and exercises have also been added at the end of each chapter for practice. S.I units have been adopted throughout.

… [The authors] have drawn on their long experience as teachers to present a well-organized text for students of engineering and architecture. Each chapter offers definitions, analysis of problems, derivations, applications, worked problems (380 in all), and exercises. Coverage begins with simple, then compound, stresses and strains, and proceeds through bending moments and shearing forces, bending stresses in beams, deflection of beams, tursion, fixed and continuous beams, columns and struts, thin and thick cylinders, and theories of elastic failure. …
