Strength of Materials by RK Bansal PDF
The book begins with explaining Principal stresses and strains that are likely to affect construction materials. These are explained in context to bars of varying sections and hyperstatic structures. The comprehensive study of stiffness and elasticity of materials and its response to varied stress and strains provides apt knowledge to gauge and ensure appropriate responses while dealing with these materials.
The book further provides the reader with in-depth analyzes on the deflection of beams and cantilevers by moment area method and conjugate beam method. Topics like Fixed Beams, Propped Cantilevers, Propped Beams, Circular Shafts, Riveted joints and Welded Joints are covered in an easy-to-comprehend manner. Considerable focus has been put on the features and usage of Reinforced Concrete as well.
Strength of Materials by R.S. Khurmi touches on all important facets imperative to the topic in a meticulous manner that gives the candidate room to think, comprehend and grasp the various nuances of this diverse and expansive topic. It was published by S. Chand Publishing in 2006 and is available in paperback.
