An Introduction to Mechanics of Solids
This book has been developed from subject matter and examples that I have used in my teaching of Solid Mechanics,
Structures and Strength of Materials in Universities over the last 12 years. It is intended for engineering degree
courses in which solid mechanics and structures form a part. Postgraduates and those preparing for the membership of
professional institutions, UPSC by examination in these subjects will also find this book useful.
The text illustrates where and how the necessary techniques are to be employed in each case. The reader will soon recognize,
for example, that under elastic loading, the solution to the stress and strain suffered by a material invariably becomes
that of satisfying three requirements: equilibrium, compatibility and the boundary conditions.
This textbook contains all to topics in 22 Chapters.
In this textbook we provide the solutions of problems of different competitive examinations like Engg. Services, IAS, UPSC, GATE, and many other universities.
