Strength of Materials – G. H. Ryder – 3rd Edition


of 3rd Edition (English) by G. H. Ryder is especially designed to help those students pursuing their third semester in their Masters in . The provides the with a clear understanding of the principles of engineering . It also includes an to certain problems.

All the chapters in the book include numbered paragraphs so as to make the book simple and easy to follow. The principles, formulae and in the book are summarized at the end of each chapter thus making study easy. The examples in the book are worked out so as to give the student a clear explanation.

covers the study of the behaviour of structural and machine members under the action of external loads. Analysis is directed towards determining the limiting loads, that the member can stand before failure of the material or excessive deformation. To this end, three basic sets of relations can be obtained. The book highlights the mechanics of these conditions.
