The second edition of this well-received book, continues to present the operating principles and working aspects of thermal and hydraulic machines. First, it covers the laws and the essential principles of thermodynamics that form the basis on which thermal machines operate. It subsequently presents the principles, construction details and the methods of control of hydraulic and thermal machines. The coverage of thermal machines includes steam turbines, gas turbines, IC engines, and reciprocating and centrifugal compressors. The coverage of hydraulic machines includes hydraulic turbines, reciprocating pumps and centrifugal pumps. The classification, construction and efficiency of these machines have been discussed with plenty of diagrams and worked problems. This will help the readers understand easily the underlying principles. This new edition includes substantially updated chapters and also introduces additional text as per the syllabus requirement. The book is intended for the undergraduate engineering students pursuing courses in mechanical, electrical and civil branches. KEY FEATURES : Provides succinct coverage of all operating aspects of thermal and hydraulic machines. Includes a large number of worked problems at the end of each chapter to help students achieve a sound understanding of the subject matter. Gives objective type questions with explanatory answers to assist students in preparing for competitive examinations.

Hydraulic Machines (Fluid Machinery) has been designed as a textbook for engineering students specializing in mechanical, civil, electrical, hydraulics, chemical and power engineering. The highlights of the book are simple language supported by analytical and graphical illustrations. A large number of theory questions and numerical problems with solution hints have been annexed at the end of every chapter. A large number of objective questions have been included to help the students opting for competitive examinations. Five case studies based on research have been included which can be advantageously used by practising engineers pursuing research design and consultancy careers. Complete design of hydraulic machines has been demonstrated with the help of suitable examples. The book has been divided into six parts containing 13 chapters.

Fluid mechanics is concerned with the behaviour of liquids and gases and is important in many branches of engineering biomechanics, oceanography, chemical, aeronautical, mechanical, and civil engineering including environmental studies. There are specialized books on fluid mechanics for each of these areas and therefore this book will present only general properties of fluid flow. The book examines various forms of energy, especially thermo and hydro power, and provides outlines of various types of power plants. An outstanding feature of the book is the classification of fluid mechanics.

A frequently misunderstood technology, die casting is considered the shortest route between raw material and near net shape. For many decades, high pressure die casting was viewed as an art based upon "seat of the pant" strategies. However, many of these crude reactions actually worked because the fundamental process is quite forgiving of eccentricities. Exploring these reactions with scientific logic, Die Casting Engineering presents a broad study of each procedure in the die casting process and clearly outlines its basic science and principles. This guide is written in a reader-friendly and logical format by an experienced authority in quality and productivity enhancement, tooling design, metal feed system analysis, temperature management, and environmental regulation. While its scope is broad and covers the many facets of die casting, the book's main focus is on function, problem identification and solution, and strategic logic. Generously illustrated, it provides a comprehensive explanation of why high pressure die casting is reliable, predictable, and teachable.

Rotors Stress Analysis and Design

Stress and strain analysis of rotors subjected to surface and body loads, as well as to thermal loads deriving from temperature variation along the radius, constitutes a classic subject of machine design. Nevertheless attention is limited to rotor profiles for which governing equations are solvable in closed form. Furthermore very few actual engineering issues may relate to structures for which stress and strain analysis in the linear elastic field and, even more, under non-linear conditions (i.e. plastic or viscoelastic conditions) produces equations to be solved in closed form. Moreover, when a product is still in its design stage, an analytical formulation with closed-form solution is of course simpler and more versatile than numerical methods, and it allows to quickly define a general configuration, which may then be fine-tuned using such numerical methods. In this view, all subjects are based on analytical-methodological approach, and some new solutions in closed form are presented. The analytical formulation of problems is always carried out considering actual engineering applications. Moreover, in order to make the use of analytical models even more friendly at the product design stage, a function is introduced whereby it is possible to define a fourfold infinity of disk profiles, solid or annular, concave or convex, converging or diverging. Such subjects, even derived from scientific authors’ contributions, are always aimed at designing rotors at the concept stage, i.e. in what precedes detailed design. Among the many contributions, a special mention is due for the following: linear elastic analysis of conical disks and disks with variable profile along its radius according to a power of a linear function, also subjected to thermal load and with variable density; analysis of a variable-profile disk subjected to centrifugal load beyond the material's yield point, introducing the completely general law expressed by a an n-grade polynomial; linear elastic analysis of hyperbolic disk, subjected to thermal load along its radius; linear elastic analysis of a variable-thickness disk according to a power of a linear function, subjected to angular acceleration; etc.
