Strength Of Materials: A Practical Approach, Volume 1
Strength of Materials is a subject that deals with the behaviour, load carrying capacity (strength), rigidity and stability of isolated members such as bars, shafts, beams, arches, slabs and columns. The individual elements may form a part of structures, machines, automobiles, spacecrafts, towers or antenna dishes. Engineering students are expected to be trained in this subject, and to learn the rudiments of the theory as a part of the curriculum. Taught as Mechanics of soilds and structural mechanics in some courses, it forms part of the curriculum of all the streams of engineering at degree and diploma levels.
