Precize Statics (Pbi. U.)


The entire subject matter in the book has been arranged in a systematic, graded, simple, lucid and exhaustive manner. Each chapter begins with some definitions followed by theorems with complete proofs and solved problems. A large number of notes and remarks have been added for a better understanding of the subject. Well-planned and exhaustive exercises have been given in each chapter.
