Overview of course

This unit gives you the outline of the course, understanding the basics of Strength of materials. This subject is very important for GATE and Indian Engineering Services Examination. Subject is very easy and if basic fundamentals are cleared, it is very scoring. The course is common for both mechanical and civil engineering students. The course includes some of the important topics like mechanical properties of materials, Simple stresses and strains, Hooke’s law and superposition, Numericals on stress and strain, Elastic Constant, Analysis of stress, Strain Energy, Numericals on simple and shear stress To make you proficient and sound with the theoretical concepts of Strength of Materials, numericals are explained in a very simple manner.
