About the Book :
A sound understanding of the fundamental concepts of civil structures, machine elements and other components is essential for the mechanical and civil engineering students. This fully revised and enlarged fourth edition helps students understand these fundamentals through a plethora of MCQs, solved and unsolved problems, beautifully created diagrams besides the essential theory. Biographies of famous luminaries have been added in every chapter. Most significantly, following 4 new chapters have been added to ensure complete coverage of the subject: • Combined Loadings • Unsymmetrical Bending and Shear Centre • Fixed Beams • Rotating Rings, Discs and Cylinders.
