Mechanical engineering

This book is written basically for engineering students as a first course in compressible fluid flow understand the fundamentals of gas dynamics. This book is written in a simple language and special effort has been made to write the subject matter clearly and understandably with emphasis on physical concepts of mathematical equations. Most of information given in the book is based on experimental results obtained under various operating conditions. Although applications of Gas Dynamics are wide and varied, most of the engineers are interested in gas flows in engines, between turbine blades, in wind tunnels, in jet and rocket propulsion systems etc. Hence the topics are given keeping above thing in mind. Also a variety of problems have been dealt and solved with equations. These may be very useful to those practising engineers who are working in super thermal power stations and are engaged in R&D wings. These informations will also be very helpful to the graduate and post graduate research scholars in the field of aero-thermodynamics of turbo-machines.
