Preface

The book covers the topics on basic applied thermodynamics, heat engines, energy sources and power generation, hydraulic turbines and pumps, workshop tools, manufacturing processes, machine tools, machine elements, power transmission, engineering materials and material handing etc. The language used is simple and lucid to aid in the easy reading and comprehension of the subject. A good number of solved numerical examples have been incorporated to clarify the concepts and train the students in applying the principles to actual problems. Besides, a large number of unsolved problems have also been given. M.K.S. units have been mostly followed, however a few problems in S.I. units have also been given.

A large number of figures are required to explain the matter in a subject like this. Line diagrams given for this purpose are simple to understand and easy to reproduce in the examination.
