The course contents of the book entitled 'Strength of Materials' have been planned in such a way that the book covers the complete course of second year students of U.P. Technical University, Lucknow. The students generally face difficulty in understanding clearly the basic principles, fundamental concepts and theory without adequate solved problems along with the text.
This book Useful for engineering students.
1. The presentation of the subject matter is very systematic and the language of the text is lucid, direct and easy to understand.
2. Each chapter of book is saturated with much needed text supported by neat and self-explanatory diagrams to make the subject matter self-speaking to a great extent.
3. A large number of solved examples, questions selected from various universities, U.P.S.C., GATE etc., examination question papers, properly graded, have been added in various chapters to enable the students to attempt different types of questions in the examination without any difficulty.
4. At the end of each chapter Highlights, Objective Type Questions, Theoretical Questions and Unsolved Examples have been added to make the book a complete unit in all respects.
