Our Pick of the Month offers you a glimpse into a book we earnestly recommend. The-Book-of-the-month is a hand-picked book by our editorial team. Several parameters are considered before recommending any book. Aspects that enhance any student's learning, ensure that the learning has the right depth - simplicity in language, great examples and necessary illustrations, lots of exercises along with chapters. All of these are kept in mind before any recommendation is made. We hope you will enjoy reading and learning from the book alike. If you do buy it, please do come back and leave it a review!

This book comprehensively covers all the major topics involving application of concepts of strength of materials which a mechanical engineer encounters day to day. Structural and machine elements which come under the purview of this subject and covered in the book are: beams of all kinds; thin and thick cylinders and spherical cells; columns and struts; bars; discs and cylinders; springs; frames; dams; trusses and so on. Solid mechanics parameters covered in the book are all the types of stresses and strains, torsion, bending moments, moments of inertia, centre of gravity, elastic constants, and so on. Various theories of elastic failure have been covered in a focused chapter. A dedicated chapter on mechanical testing of materials will aid students in understanding how strength of materials is determined in laboratory conditions.

  • At the end of the chapters a large number (more than 300) of questions have been given
  • The text is supplemented with line diagrams/pictures profusely so that the students can understand the concepts easily.
  • The topics are discussed in a sequence of gradually increasing level of difficulty, so that it is easier for the students to follow the topics after building appropriate background strongly
  • Relatively difficult topics like principal stresses, theory of failure, bending of curved bars, thick cylinders, strain energy, continuous beams, fixed beams, etc., have been treated with special care to see that material is accessible to all students.

R.K. Kaushik :- R. K. Kaushik, Ph.D., D.M.E., Gr.I.E (I), M.Tech (Mech), M.I.E (I), he was formerly head of department (Mechanical) at Haryana Institute of Technology. Dr Kaushik has overall 47 years of experience, out of which 28 years were in different departments of ABB Ltd., earlier known as Taylor Instrument Ltd (both MNCs), where he was mostly a manager in its R&D cell. He has 19 years of teaching experience, teaching subjects like Strength of Materials, Mechanical Design and Engineering Mechanics to B. Tech (mechanical engineering) students. Since 2008, he has been teaching at Haryana Institution of Technology, Bahadurgarh. He has also worked as lecturer in Kenya and Botswana for 12 years, teaching at the degree level. He has also been to Switzerland in 2007 briefly on a promotion assignment for an India-based company.
