Hydraulic Machines : Fluid Machinery
India is bestowed with large hydel power potential and can set up 1,50,000 MW capacity. Presently, only about 30,000 MW of capacity has been created. There is a big gap to exploit this renewable and clean source of energy. Every industrial process involves the transfer of liquid from one level of pressure to another. Pumps have become essential part of all industrial processes and, in turn, major consumers of energy. Therefore, hydraulic machines mainly consisting of hydraulic turbines and pumps have been included as a core subject for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Hydraulic Engineering, Power Engineering, etc. The present book has been designed to meet the above requirements.
Audience of the Book :
|Hydraulic Machines : Fluid Machinery has been designed as a textbook for engineering students specializing in mechanical, civil, electrical, hydraulics, chemical and power engineering.|
The main features of the book are as follows:
1.A large number of theory questions and numerical problems with solution hints have been annexed at the end of every chapter.
2.A large number of objective questions have been included to help the students opting for competitive examinations.
3.The highlights of the book are simple language supported by analytical and graphical illustrations.
