ed diagrams have been used throughout the text for a sound comprehension of the fundamentals of the subject. Most of the examples and chapter-end problems have been formulated in parametric form making them independent of units and suitable for practical applications. An extensive set of problems along with hints and answers is provided at the end of each chapter for practice.

Since the book aims at covering the topics generally taught in engineering curriculum of several disciplines, an interdisciplinary approach has been followed. Some advanced topics such as thick pressure vessels, skew bending, curved members, beam-columns, etc. have also been included for the benefit of postgraduate students.

Key Features :

Emphasizes clarity of concepts and development of structural sense to enable the student to appropriately visualize the details of structures.

Develops the students' proficiency in solving a variety of problems encountered in engineering practice.

Chapter-end questions (with hints and answers) prepare the student to handle practical mechanical, structural and fabrication problems.

Examples and practice problems are formulated in parametric form making them independent of units and suitable for practical applications.
