About Solid Mechanics in GATE 2019

Solid mechanics is the section of continuum mechanics that examines the behavior of solid materials, particularly their motion and deformation beneath the action of forces, temperature changes, phase changes, and other internal or external agents. It is the Study of the influence of forces on deformable or real-world objects. Principles of Solid Mechanics are widely employed in design and interpretation of machine components and structures. This subject includes marks weightage of 6 to 7 in GATE Mechanical Engineering & Civil Engineering.  For the preparation for the GATE exam applicants must go through the reference books. Here in this article, we are providing the reference books which will be beneficial for you at the time of preparation.
