About the Book

A comprehensive and lucidly written book, "Strength of Materials" captures the syllabus of most major Indian Universities and competitive examinations as well. The book discusses everything under solids and its mechanics (such as providing different aspects of stresses) and provides the reader with a deeper interest in the subject - all within aptly formed chapters. It also contains typical examples (useful for students appearing in competitive examinations in particular and other students in general), highlights, objective type questions and a large number of unsolved examples for a complete grasp of the subject.

Key Features

• 21 succinctly written chapters which encompass all basic concepts along with 11 Material Testing Experiments.
• More than 1850 examples, figures, tables and chapter-end highlights aid to the concepts explained.
• Close to 800 chapter-end questions, University Questions, GATE & UPSC Examination Questions and 11 Material Testing Experiments (with precautions) for practice.
• Free on the Website: Chapter on "Riveted and Welded Joints".
