Author: S S Bhavikatti
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.
