About the Book

Modern-day engineers constantly encounter applications of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics while working with engineering designs and structures, converting the power of heat and fluid into mechanical work-from early steam engines to hydroelectricity and supersonic jets. Equipping budding engineers with state-of-theart technology, This book provides an in-depth study of the two disciplines. Books in this series have been specially designed to meet the requirements of a large spectrum of engineering students of WBUT—those who find learning the concepts difficult and want to study through solved examples and those who wish to study in the traditional way.
