Here is the listing of Best reference books on Strength of Materials.
|1. “Strength of Materials Vol. I” by S.P. Timonshenko
Book Review: The book contains the addition of new topics based on the recent advancements in Strength of Materials. It contains detailed information about bending of beams in a plane which is not the plane of symmetry. It also contains information on the bending of bars. The importance of shear center which is very useful in the case of thin walled structures is also described in the book. Each concept is reinforced with examples and exercises which enhances the understanding of the subject. The different topics covered are stress, strain, rotating disc, energy methods, material stressing and so on.

|3. “Theory of Elasticity” by S.P. Timonshenko and J.N. Goodier|
|4. “Engineering Mechanics of Solids” by Egor. P.Popov
Book Review: This book contains comprehensive information on engineering mechanics of solids. Newly emerging fields are also included in the book which are probabilistic methods and matrix methods of structural analysis. Importance has been laid on SI units and intuitive approaches for calculating axial stress are also included in the book. Various chapters on mechanical properties of materials are also included in the group. Chapters on advanced analytic expression for cycle loading and surface for brittle materials is also included in the group. This book is the best reference for civil, mechanical and aeronautical engineers.
|5. “Advanced Mechanics of Solids” by Srinath L.N
Book Review: This book contains various chapters on Stress analysis, Strain analysis and stress and strain analysis for isotropic solids. Various theorems related to Virtual work, Castigliano, Kirchoff, Menabria and many others are discussed in the book. Torsion of circular, elliptical, equilateral triangular bars are also discussed in the book. Analysis of axisymmetric problems like rotating disks, shafts and cylinders are also discussed in the book. Various problems are solved using the theory of elasticity approach. With the inclusion of all these topics, the book provides a good foundation in Mechanics of deformable solids.
