Authors of Thermal Engineering are happy to present a long standing requirement of a book which will be useful to the students from first year to final year mechanical engineering course from various universities. This book covers quite wide spectrum of topics like fundamental concepts, first & second law of thermodynamics, IC engines, Systems of IC engines, Compressors & Gas turbines, Jet propulsion system, Boilers, properties of steam, Steam nozzles and Turbines, Condensers, Refrigeration and air-conditioning, Heat transfer, Fuels and combustion. New topics of today’s interest like pollution and pollution control have been covered. Topics like metal cutting / joining process, machine devices & elements, introduction of mechatronics have also been included. This would give preliminary exposure to the students going to non-mechanical course to acquire some basic ideas about the manufacturing industry. These topics are intended to be studied by all students in the first year level in most of the universities.


  •  All topics included in the chapters have been thoroughly described.
  • Every topic has been written in most logical sequence maintaining the natural flow to keep the students interested.
  • The chapters are arranged such that the beginners will understand the fundamentals of ‘THERMODYNAMICS’ and gradually the topics of applications of thermodynamics have been developed in sequence. The students would be able to get the fundamental concept about all topics included in thermal engineering up to the final year in mechanical engineering,
  •  A large number of solved problems on different topics are included. Numerical problems with answers, as well as theoretical questions have been included for the students to practice.
  • An alphabetical index is given at the end of the book to facilitate easy search of any topic as required.
  • The coverage of topics in the book is based on syllabi of universities in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamilnadu, Maharashtra, Punjab and West Bengal & other major universities.
  • Clear & simple figures have been included in each chapter for better understanding & also to enable students to draw / reproduce these in the examination easily.
  • In the entire book SI system of units is used.

A text for BE (Mech.), B.Tech (Mech.), UPSC (Engineering Services), AMIE, M.Tech. etc.
