Theory of Structures" covers the syllabus of most major Indian Universities. The book is designed for the students of Civil Engineering but is also useful for the students of B. Arch and B.Sc. (Engineering). It also contains typical examples (useful for students appearing in competitive examinations in particular), highlights and unsolved examples. The book is aptly divided into 6 parts which is further sub-divided into 23 chapters ranging from topics like Beams, Bridges to Stresses and Deflection, Fixed beams to redundant frames and columns and struts

1. Introductory first chapter discusses not only discusses the basic concepts but also all Units and Mathematical Review
2. Close to 900 figures, tables, examples and chapter-end highlights provide ample support to the theory explained
3. In-text exercise questions provide practice to students as well as refresh the concepts explained in a practical manner.
