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