Strength of Materials : Mechanics Of Solids (SI Units) covers the subject thoroughly for students doing professional engineering courses, and for those preparing for engineering job recruitment exams.
Summary Of The Book
Strength of materials is the study of the behavior of objects under stress. This field of study finds special application in construction engineering. Builders have to plan for the interactions of the construction materials with forces acting on them. Strength of Materials : Mechanics Of Solids (SI Units) introduces the study of the strength of materials. It then discusses the different types of stresses and strains acting on an object. The book looks at Strains and Stresses In Various Situations and on various construction materials, like Strains on Bars.
The book focuses on other concepts like Thermal Stresses, Strain Energy and Impact Loading, Principal Stresses and Strains, Perfect Frames, Elastic Constants, Moment of Inertia, Bending Stresses, and Shear Force. It also goes into topics such as Deflection of Beams and Cantilevers, Bending and Direct Stresses, Retaining Walls, Shearing Stresses in Beams, and Deflection by Conjugate Beam and Moment Area Method.
The book also discusses the properties of Fixed Beams, Propped Beams and Cantilevers, Springs, Riveted and Welded Joints, and Columns and Struts. Strength of Materials : Mechanics Of Solids (SI Units) then explains Three Moments Theorem, Circular Shaft Torsion, and Moment Distribution Method. The book also focuses on Spherical and Cylindrical Shells and provides an overview of the subject of Reinforced Concrete.
