Features In a single comprehensive volume this book provides through foundation in Applied Thermodynamics. Greater emphasis is laid on critical analysis of design parameters as against simple detailing of various applications making this truly a unique book. Topical Coverage Comprehensive introductory chapter covering the fundamentals of thermodynamics and heat transfer; laboratory testing procedures for IC Engines, Reciprocatory Air Compressors, and Air-conditioning Systems. Computer Programming models on Thermodynamic cycle and power cycle analysis, Estimating the efficiencies of energy conversion, Testing of IC engines and reciprocatory air compressors, Estimation of combustion parameters, Heating and cooling load calculations, Nozzle design. Pedagogy 186 figures, 192 example problems and 10 computer-oriented examples, 141 theoretical review questions, 198 exercise problems, 125 objective questions and 27 computer-oriented exercises.
