About The Book Fundamentals Of Mechanical Sciences
As per syllabus of West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT)
The book is primarily intended for the first-year undergraduate students of all branches of engineering as per the course curriculum of the West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT). It is a comprehensive textbook on fundamental concepts of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. It gives a detailed description of the theory along with the systematic applications of laws of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics to engineering problems. The text is amply illustrated with worked-out examples, tables and diagrams to enable the students to comprehend the subject with ease. It is designed to take students from an elementary level to a level of sound understanding required for the analysis of practical problems.
Deals with basic principles in a clear and easy-to-understand style.
Provides plenty of solved problems in each chapter.
Unsolved problems with hints and answers are included at the end of each chapter, to develop students problem-solving skills.
Multiple choice questions with answers are provided to help students assess their comprehension of the subject.
To make the students familiar with the examination pattern, previous years WBUT Examination Question Papers are given along with the solutions.
