Hi friends

On this thread i have uploaded high quality notes/ebook for the subject Mechanics of solids. It is a very important subject of the course and i am sure these notes will help you prepare well for the semester exams.

Topics Covered:

Module I - Definition of stress, stress tensor, normal and shear stresses in axially loaded members. Stress & Strain :- Stress-strain relationship, Hooke's law, Poisson's ratio, shear stress, shear strain, modulus of rigidity. Relationship between material properties of isotropic materials

Module II - Two Dimensional State of Stress and Strain: Principal stresses, principal strains and principal axes, calculation of principal stresses from principal strains.Stresses in thin cylinder and thin spherical shells under internal pressure, wire winding of thin cylinders. Torsion of solid circular shafts

Module III - Shear Force And Bending Moment Diagram: For simple beams, support reactions for statically determinant beams, relationship between bending moment and shear force, shear force and bending moment diagrams. Pure bending theory of initially straight beams, distribution of normal and shear stress, beams of two materials. Deflection of beams by integration method and area moment method.

Module IV - Closed coiled helical springs. Buckling of columns : Euler's theory of initially straight columns with various end conditions
