Mechanics of Solids

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.

1. Introduction
2. Axial Loading, Simple Stresses and Strains
3. Analysis of Stress
4. Analysis of Strain
5. Relation between Stress and Strain
6. Thin-walled Pressure Vessels
7. Axisymmetric Problems: Thick Cylinders and Rotating
8. Torsion of Shafts
9. Bending Moments and Shear Forces
10.Slope and Deflection of Beams
11.Pure Bending and Bending Stresses
12.Buckling of Columns
