Fluid Mechanics: Including Hydraulic Machines By A. K. Jain
Book Summary:

The purpose of writing of this book was prompted by a desire to meet the requirements of an average undergraduate student in engineering. It is the outcome of the author's association with the subject for the past four decades. While planning the course contents, the general requirements for civil, mechancial, aeronautical, chemical and electrical engineering students were kept in mind.

The book has been thorougly revised. Valuable additions have been made in Chapters on Drag and Lift by adding a section on Drag on road vehicles and enlarging scope of Hydraulic Turbines by including photographic information on scroll casing, guide vanes and runners of different kinds, as also certain important hydroelectric installations of the country. Also included are sections on small hydropower plants and wind energy.

The objective type questions have been revisited and pruned to bring effectiveness and desired objectivity.

To apprise the readers with the type and quality of questions asked in the examinations conducted by institutions of national repute, many typical examples (both solved and unsolved from the examination question papers of the University of Roorkee, Engineering Services Examinations of the Union Public Service Commission (U.P.S.C.) and the Institution of Engineers Examination for Associate Membership have been included. Included also are some typical questions on the pattern of those asked in the examinations of Indian Institutes of Technology.

More worked out problems of typical nature drawn from reputed universities, UPSC Exams. and GATE Exams. have been added to enhance the usefulness of the book. A special feature is the inclusion of several specially designed objective type questions given at the end of each chapter.

Such questions are often asked in various competitive examinations. It is hoped that the book will now be more useful.
