Download Strength of Materials A Text Book for Engineering Students of all Disciplines by U. C. Jindal easily in PDF format for free.

This book on Strength of Materials covers firstly the introductory course on the subject for the engineering students of all disciplines i.e. Mechanical, Production, Civil, Electrical, Electronic Engg. and Computer Sciences in the Engg. Colleges as well as in Polytechnics and secondly

the advanced course on the subject for the students of Mechanical and Civil Engg. disciplines. This book will act as a faith full companion to the students studying a course on Machine Design and computing stresses in machine members and to engineers serving in design offices of various Research and Development Organisations.

The author is teaching the subject for the last 23 years and is fully conversent with the difficulties experienced by the students. Therefore, while preparing the text of the book, the point of view of the students was constantly kept in mind. The contents of the book have been designed in a manner to help all grades of the students. For the relatively mediocre students unable to attend classes regularly, there are simple examples and exercises, a thorough study of which would impart confidence and a clear understanding of the subject.

For the brighter students, there are complicated problems and exercises, the understanding and solution of which will help them go a long way in securing exceptionally good marks and in assuring a place of distinction in any competitive examination.

The advanced chapters on Bending of Curved Bars, Rotational Stresses, Energy Methods, Unsymmetrical Bending, Shear Centre and Torsion of Non Circular Shafts are no doubt avail- able in many books but either the treatment given is too elementary or the examples given are insufficient. As a result, the students are apprehensive of these chapters when they appear in the examinations. Therefore, these topics have been thoroughly explained and a large number of solved examples are given so that the students can very well understand these advanced topics. Constructive suggestions for improvement of the book are always solicited.

The development of this book has been strongly influenced by the author's colleagues, students and the numerous books on the subject published in India and abroad. The author is deeply indebted to the inspiration received initially from his brilliant and genius son and this book is dedicated to his loving memory.
