The mechanical proper es covered include elas c, anelas c and viscoelas c behaviour, plas c
deforma on, creep and fracture phenomena. The next four chapters are devoted to a detailed

This eminently readable and studentfriendly text not only provides a masterly analysis of all the
relevant topics, but also makes them comprehensible to the students through the skillful use of

primarily intended for undergraduate students of all branches of engineering (B.E./B.Tech.) and
postgraduatestudentsofPhysics,ChemistryandMaterialsScience.
