A Textbook of Thermal Engineering” encompasses all theories of the subject thereby making it a must-read for all students of Mechanical Engineering. Topics such as General Thermodynamic Relations and Variable Specific Heat as well as Turbines (M-pulse, Reaction) and Air Compressors have been dealt in detail.
In addition to the exhaustive topical coverage, numerous solved examples and chapter-end exercises and questions have been added to make the student understand all aspects of concepts explained. A book which has seen, foreseen and incorporated changes in the subject for close to 40 years, it continues to be one of the most sought after texts by the students.

Key Features:

  • Divided in 40 chapters, the text amply explains every concept of the subject.
  • Close to 850 examples, figures and tables aid to the concepts explained.
  • More than 1000 chapter-end questions (objective and subjective) and exercises add to the practice of the students.
