Book News Annotation:
The two authors are both affiliated with the department of civil engineering at the National Institute of Technology in India. They have drawn on their long experience as teachers to present a well-organized text for students of engineering and architecture. Each chapter offers definitions, analysis of problems, derivations, applications, worked problems (380 in all), and exercises. Coverage begins with simple, then compound, stresses and strains, and proceeds through bending moments and shearing forces, bending stresses in beams, deflection of beams, tursion, fixed and continuous beams, columns and struts, thin and thick cylinders, and theories of elastic failure. There's no indication of the dates of publication of the two earlier editions or of changes made in this third edition. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
