About the book

ADVANCED MECHANICS OF SOLIDS: A Gentle Introduction is meant for the students who seem to have much difficulty with this subject. It tries to present the crucial concepts gently and painlessly in the early chapters, but without sacrificing rigour. Copious footnotes and a large chapter of more than sixty illustrative examples are a feature of the book. These illustrative examples do not include all numerical problems.
