    Sorry I misplaced the question. This shouldn't be here. My apologies.

    I am not sure where the question has gone, but the answer is another question: (covering what sort of level? What topics? There are many suitable and unsuitable books. It depends a bit on the level of maths you are prepared to use)

    I need a good introductory book suitable for the undergraduate level. I'm studying it for the first time. I've had basic Materials Science course (our book was Materials Science and Engineering by Callister 7th ed.), differential calculus, integral calculus, a bit of differential equations and complex analysis, vector analysis, and basic quantum mechanics. Thanks a lot. :smile:

    Usually one would study statics, mechanics of materials, and then structural analysis. Some of the mechanical properties of materials may have been covered in your materials science class, but it would be covered again and applied to structural problems in a mechanics of materials class.

    ramamrutham is a good book for problems.
    c s reddy is a good book for theory.
    if u want a very easy book then go for bhavikhati
