Description

This text-book published in continuation of its Vol. I. This volume discusses the theory and
analysis of structures in comprehensive and lucid manner.
This book is written by an eminent author who had an experience of over thirty years in the
teaching of the subject, and now, it is revised and enlarged by the experienced teacher.
The book within its 21 chapters now contains more than:
* 400 Fully solved problems
* 440 Examples with answers
* 640 Neatly drawn diagrams
It is published entirely in SI Units.
It is hoped that this edition will prove extremely useful to the students of Civil, Mechanical and
Architecture Engineering reading for Degree Examinations of all the Universities of India, Diploma Examinations conducted by various Boards of Technical Examinations, also Certificate
Courses, as well as for the A.M.I.E., U.P.S.C., G.A.T.E., I.E.S. and other similar competitive
and professional Examinations. It should also prove of great interest and practical use to the
practising engineers.
