The book is written in simple lucid language and easy to understand style. * Subject matter has been fully revised in such a way that makes the scientific concepts clear and understandeable. * This edition comprises new and freshly added illustrations so that the reader may not have to refer books on cell biology. * Meets well the curricula requirements of undergraduate students of Indian Universities.
The book, now in the Second Edition, presents the fundamental principles of strength of materials and focuses on 3D analysis of stress and strain, double integration method, Macaulay’s method, moment area method and method for determining stresses using Winkler–Bach theory. It also covers the analyses of helical springs and leaf spring, and buckling analysis of columns and struts using Euler’s and Rankine’s theory. This edition includes four new chapters, namely Simple and Compound Stress, Theory of Failure, Energy Methods and Finite Element Method and its Applications Using ANSYS Software. The chapter on Analysis of Stress and Strain has been thoroughly revised. The text is primarily designed for the undergraduate students of mechanical engineering, production engineering, and industrial engineering. Besides students, practising engineers would also find the book useful. KEY FEATURES : A large number of numerical problems Open-ended or synthesis-type examples wherever required Chapter-end exercises
