About The Book Laboratory Manual Hydraulics And Hydraulic Machines
This manual presents 31 laboratory-tested experiments in hydraulics and hydraulic machines.
This manual is organized into two parts. The first part equips the student with the basics of fluid properties, flow properties, various flow measuring devices and fundamentals of hydraulic machines. The second part presents experiments to help students understand the basic concepts, the phenomenon of flow through pipes and flow through open channels, and the working principles of hydraulic machines. For each experiment, the apparatus required for conducting the experiment, the probable experimental set-up, the theory behind the experiment, the experimental procedure, and the method of presenting the experimental data are all explained. Viva questions (with answers) are also given. In addition, the errors arising during recording of observations, and various precautions to be taken during experimentation are explained with each experiment.
The manualis primarily designed for the undergraduate degree students and diploma students of civil engineering, mechanical engineering and chemical engineering.
