SIMPLE STRESSES AND STRAINS:
The concepts of strain, stress, elastic modulus & the basic concepts in application to analysis of deformation and stresses in simple solids. Any designer of engineering systems ought to have a clear perception of how forces are resisted by solids and the effects generated in solids so as to enable him to generate designs with stability and safety. The study of these aspects shall require learning further new concepts & methods, understanding of which shall require the knowledge you obtained in this unit. Therefore, this unit is like the first step in a full flight of stairs climbing which shall provide you with a powerful tool of engineering.
