    About The Authors

    Stephen P. Timoshenko is considered to be the father of modern mechanical engineering.

    S. Timoshenko’s books range from courses in first year undergraduate to advanced graduate students. Some of the books he had written are, Theory of Plates and Shells, Advanced Dynamics and History of The Strength of Materials from 1925 to 1972.

    The Ukrainian-American author’s contribution in the field of engineering and his impact on education is unprecedented. His clear and logical style of writing in his textbooks and technical papers have inspired and taught generations of structural engineers all over the world.

    He was born in Ukraine but later moved to America, and became a professor at the Stanford University in 1936. He passed away in 1972.

    James M. Gere’s career span of 34 years revolved around teaching mechanics, and structural and earthquake engineering as well as authoring textbooks. 

    He authored nine textbooks, starting with Mechanics of Materials. Some of his other works include Matrix Algebra for Engineers and Moment Distribution. In 1974, he co-founded the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at the Stanford University, of which he was a professor. He travelled worldwide as well as to Yosemite and the Grand Canyon national parks, to study these earthquake prone areas.

    He was married to his childhood sweetheart for 61 years, till his death. He is now survived by his wife and three children.

    Lucid Language, Clear Explanation and Compact Description

    This is probably the best book i have read recently on Strength Of materials subject. Indian writers tend to just describe formulas and derivations without answering the questions why and when. This book does so.
    While reading the book, it will feel like Stephen Timoshenko and Gere themselves are describing the subject matter in front of you. You wont feel lost at the end of the reading. The authors have tried to describe the phenomenons in the best possible way so that one can link all the ...

    A MUST IF YOU ARE AN ENG GRAD STUDENT

    This is a very good book.One of my friends(GOD Bless him) recommended it.But I am terribly let down by Flip kart's service this time. 12 pages are left blank(not printed).(and no exchange on books) I will note down some points so that it will help you make up your mind, but I will also recommend you to go and check this book out at nearby store before you buy.(See this way you wont blame me if you don't like the book,but I bet you will)

    Brilliant work

    One of the most beautiful books in strength of material. Language is clean and lucid. Concepts are well explained. You will never regret buying this as it clears everything from its fundamentals. Highly recommended if you want true knowledge in the subject. Helpful in competitions like GATE, BARC, Engg. Services Examinations etc. It may disappoint you a little if you are a fan of Khurmi's & Rajput's worthlessness and looking only to pass the semester.
