Thermal and Hydraulic Machines has been introduced as a core subject for Electrical, Electronics, Mechanical and students of other branches of engineering by various technical universities. The present book has been designed to meet the requirements of teachers and students for the above important subject.
The book has been divided into following five units:
1. Thermodynamics and Vapour Power Cycles
2. Steam Turbine and Gas Turbine
3. Compressors and I.C. Engines
4. Hydraulics and Hydraulic Turbines
5. Hydraulic Pumps.
The book has been written in simple language duly supplemented by solved numerical problems, diagrams and mathematical analysis. Suggestions and criticism for the improvement of the book are welcome with gratitude.
