Strength Of Materials (Mechanics Of Solids) - Multicolor Edition

Preface To The Twenty Third Edition

It gives a great pleasure in presenting the new multi color edition of this popular book to innumerable students and academic staff of the Universities in India and abroad. The favourable and warm reception which the previous editions and reprints of this book have enjoyed all over India and abroad, has been a matter of great satisfaction.
The present edition of this book is in S.I. units.To make the book really useful at all levels, a number of articles as well as solved and have been eliminated. Three new chapters of Thick Cylindrical and Spherical Shells, Bending of Curved Bars and Mechanical Properties of Materials have also been added.
Any errors, omissions and suggestions for the improvement of this volume, will be thankfully acknowledged and incorporated in the next edition.

Preface To The First Edition

I take an opportunity to present Strength of Materials to the students of Degree and Diploma, in general, and A.M.I.E (I) Section 'A' in particular. The object of this book is to present the subject matter in most concise, compact, to the point and lucid manner.
While writing the book , I have always kept in view the examination requirements of the students and various difficulties and troubles, which they face, while studying the subject. I have also constantly, kept in view the requirements of those intelligent students, who are always keen to increases their knowledge. All along the approach to the subject matter, every care has been taken to deal with each and every topic as well as problem from the fundamentals and in the simplest possible manner, within the mathematical ability of an average student.

The subject matter has been amply illustrated by incorporating a good number of solved, unsolved and well graded examples of almost every variety. Most of these examples are taken from the recent examination papers of Indian as well as foreign universities and professional examining bodies, to make the student, familiar with the types of questions, usually set in their examinations. At the end of each topic. a few exercise have been added, for the students to solve them independently. Answer to these problems have been provided, but it is too much to hope that these are entirely free from errors. At the end of each chapter, Highlights have been added, which summaries the main topics discussed in the chapter for quick revision before the examination. In short, it is earnestly hoped that the book will earn the appreciation of the teachers and student alike.

Although every care has been taken to check mistakes and misprints, yet it is difficult to claim perfection. Any errors, omissions and suggestions for the improvement of this volume, brought to my notice, will be thankfully acknowledged and incorporated in the next edition.
