The book is about the elasticity theory which states that an elastic body regains its original shape if the deforming force is removed from it. The theory is well explained by Dr. S Singh in his book. The deforming force is called stress which is when applied makes the body to experience deformation called strain. Dr Sadhu Singh is a mechanical engineer from Faridkot Punjab.
The book is published in India by Khanna Publications which has also published Singh's other books on mechanical engineering.
