The book has been titled 'Fluid Machines' though in its present form it mainly covers hydraulic machines. This has been done to facilitate the addition of some more related topics like compressors, fans and blowers in future as the theory underlying these machines is the same. The book has been written in S.I. units, The contents of the book have been guided to a considerable extent by the syllabi of various universities and professional bodies. Most of the solved examples and problems at the end of the chapters have been taken from their examinations.
