About the Book

Engineering Thermodynamics is a comprehensive text which presents the broad spectrum of the principles of thermodynamics while encapsulating the theoretical and practical aspects of the field. The book provides clear explanation of basic principles for better understanding of the subject. Additionally, the book includes numerous laws, theorems, formulae, tables, charts and equations for learning apart from extensive references for more-in-depth information.
The revised edition of the book has been completely updated covering the complete syllabi of most universities and is aimed to be useful to both the students and faculty.


■ 14 new chapters on the following topics:
• Thermodynamic Relations
• Fuels and Combustion
• Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning
• Heat Transfer
• Compressible Fluid Flow
• Working and testing of I.C. Engines

■ 450+ Examples and 1000+ Exercises, Questions and Objective type questions taken from examination papers of various universities have been given for better understanding and practice.
