About the book

Thermal Engineering covers in a comprehensive and coherent manner fundamentals of thermodynamics and their engineering applications. Beginning with elementary ideas of pressure, temperature and heat, it develops the laws of thermodynamics from experimental and engineering backgrounds. Steam turbine is covered in a simple and easy methods of drawing velocity triangles. As thermal science is related to heat transfer, a general overview is presented and alongwith a discussion on various power cycles for improving efficiency.
