Description

The level of knowledge content given in this book is designed for the students who have completed elementary mechanics of solids for stresses and strains associated with various geometries including simple trusses, beams, shafts, columns, etc. At the successful completion of understanding the content, the students will be able to reach a stage where they can do self-directed learning at any further advanced level in the area of mechanics of solids. The emphasis is given on the fundamental concepts for students to quickly follow through for an advanced level if required in the future. Fracture mechanics is included in this book with necessary preliminary steps for those who might have had difficulties with the subject in the past.
