Hi everyone, I just thought that it might be useful for everyone if we go through the concepts from the book of mechanics by Mr. Timoshenko. Its a great book. Some people from this forum advised me to refer this book for mechanics. I find it very useful. But I would like to write about the concepts I find interesting in the book. It will of course help me to review my knowledge, in turn it might help amateurs also. Not to mention, everyone (no matter how much knowledgeable he is) needs to revise his concepts. There would not be a better way to do so through this thread. Please note that this is a discussion thing and ANYONE is invited to discuss/comment/critic in this thread. I would try to update this thread as I read the book. As people in this forum are active, I am sure I will receive good cooperation from them. The thing is due to my work, I will be able to update only wtice or thrice a week. Regards, Pami.
