## Engineering mechanics of materialsThis book provides the students of various engineering disciplines with a clear and understandable treatment of the concepts of Mechanics of Materials or Strength of Materials. This subject is concerned with the behavior of deformable bodies when subjected to axial, torsional and flexural loads as well as combinations thereof. It is a 3rd, updated edition of the popular undergraduate level textbook useful for students of mechanical, structural, civil, aeronautical and other engineering disciplines. The book is supplied with problems and a solution manual will be available from the authors. |
