Applied Mechanics & Strength Of Materials is aimed at B.Sc and diploma level courses, and for preparation for UPSC engineering exams.
Summary Of The Book
Applied Mechanics & Strength Of Materials involves the study of the strength of structural materials and the study of mechanical laws and their applications in solving engineering problems.
The book provides a thorough explanation of the concepts in studying the strengths of materials and applied mechanics. The book covers the theory in twenty nine chapters. It starts with an introduction to the fundamental concepts of Applied Mechanics & Strength Of Materials and then proceeds to cover the subjects in detail in the consecutive chapters.
The book covers composition and resolution of forces, parallel forces and couples, moments and their applications, centre of gravity, equilibrium of forces and moments of inertia, and simple lifting machines.
In addition, this book deals with the laws of motions, projectiles, circular and linear motions, work, power and energy, simple and thermal stresses and strains, strain, energy and impact loading, and elastic constants.
Applied Mechanics & Strength Of Materials then covers deflections of beams and cantilevers, torsion of circular shafts, thin cylindrical and spherical shells, riveted joints, and analysis of perfect frames.
The book comprehensively covers the mechanical properties of materials, statics, kinetics, and the structural behavior of materials under stress.
