Mechanics of Solids is a basic engineering course that deals with the behaviour of solid bodies subjected to various types of loading. The basic objectives of this course are the determination of the stresses, strains and deformations produced by the loads.
The main objective of this book is to present the aspects of mechanics of materials in unified and integrated manner. This book is structured to meet the requirements of the course contents of Mechanics of Solids or Strength of Materials for undergraduate students of civil, mechanical and aerospace engineering. It is also a valuable reference for practising engineers and architects. The book covers the syllabi of various universities and AICTE undergraduate curriculum of engineering and solid mechanics.
All the chapters are equipped with basic background of the problems and solved examples. Complex problems are illustrated for competitive and university examinations. A number of multiple-choice questions taken from GATE, IES and Civil Services are included in the appendix.
Divided in 12 chapters the book broadly deals with the following:

  • fundamentals of mechanics
  • stress and strain of materials body
  • behaviour of material under axial loading
  • normal stress, axial strain, simple tension test, shear stress and strain, and strain energy under impact load
  • analysis of two-dimensional stresses, stresses at a point, Mohr's circle for plane stress and general stress system at a point
  • stress-strain relation of three-dimensional body, plane stress and plane strain, relation between elastic constants and theories of elastic failure
  • applications of stress and strain in practical problems
  • analysis of thin and thick pressure vessels
  • behaviour of solid and hollow prismatic shaft under torsion
  • bending of simple beams, bending moment and shear force diagram
  • Castigliano's method
  • bending normal and shear stresses of beams for different cross sections, unsymmetrical bending of beam
  • buckling of columns for simple columns for different end conditions
