| About The Book Mechanical Sciences
Primarily intended for the first-year undergraduate students of various engineering disciplines, this comprehensive and up-to-date text also serves the needs of second-year undergraduate students (Mechanical, Civil, Aeronautical, Chemical, Production and Marine Engineering) studying Engineering Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics.
The whole text is divided into two parts and gives a detailed description of the theory along with the systematic applications of laws of Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics to engineering problems. Part I (Chapters 1-6) deals with the energy interaction between system and surroundings, while Part II (Chapters 7-15) covers the fluid flow phenomena. This accessible and comprehensive text is designed to take the student from an elementary level to a level of sophistication required for the analysis of practical problems.
• More than 150 graded solved examples to foster understanding of theory.
• Multiple-choice questions to help students assess their comprehension of the topics.
• Unsolved problems with hints and answers to develop students’ problem solving skills.
