Strength of Materials

Share this

In mechanics of materials, the strength of a material is its ability to withstand an applied load without failure or plastic deformation. The field of strength of materials deals with forces and deformations that result from their acting on a material. The complete theory began with the consideration of the behaviour of one and two dimensional members of structures.
