Mechanics of Solids is an important course for all engineering students by which they develop analytical skill. In this course, laws of mechanics are applied to parts of bodies and skill is developed to get solution to engineering problems
maintaining continuity of the parts.
The author has clearly explained theories involved and illustrated them by solving a number of engineering problems. Neat diagrams are drawn and solutions are given without skipping any step. SI units and standard notations as suggested by Indian Standard Code are used throughout. The author has made this book to suit the latest syllabus of Gujarat Technical University.
Author hopes, the students and teachers of Gujarat Technical University will receive this book whole-heartedly as most of the earlier books of the author have been received by the students and teachers all over India. The suggestions and corrections, if any, are most welcome. The author acknowledges the efforts of M/s. New Age International Publishers in bringing out this book in nice form. He also acknowledges the opportunity given by AICTE for associating him with B.U.B. Engineering College, Hubli. —Author
