Overview

ABOUT THE COURSE

Strength of Materials is a fundamental subject needed primarily for the students of Mechanical sciences. As the engineering design of different components, structures etc. used in practice are done using different kinds of materials, it is essential to understand the basic behavior of such materials. The objective of the present course is to make the students acquainted with the concept of load resultant, consequences and how different kinds of loadings can be withstood by different kinds of members with some specific materials. NPTEL lecture series on Strength of Materials are prepared, explaining the fundamentals in a simple and lucid manner so that the students can grasp the basics of the application of loading system and its consequence in a deformable body.
