The book, Engineering Mechanics of Solids, is the second edition of its kind and provides an extensive, yet documented study, in an orderly manner. The book throws light on the subject of engineering mechanics of solids. In this edition, the author attempts to complement the regular subjects with the latest and emerging fundamentals of the subject.

The book thoroughly explains stress-strain diagrams as well as contains new portions that cover viscoelastic activity and fatigue. In addition to that, the book also contains the basics of structure design, grounded on the probability principle. This book will be of great use for Individuals studying civil, aeronautical, and mechanical engineering.
