Engineering Thermodynamics Third Edition by R. K. Rajput

Preface to The Third Edition:

I am pleased to present the third edition of this book. The warm reception which the previous editions and reprints of this book have enjoyed all over India and abroad has been a matter of great satisfaction to me. The entire book has been thoroughly revised ; a large number of solved examples (questions having been selected from various universities and competitive examinations) and ample additional text have been added. Any suggestions for the improvement of the book will be thankfully acknowledged and incorporated in the next edition.

Preface to The First Edition:

Several books are available in the market on the subject of “Engineering Thermodynamics” but either they are too bulky or are miserly written and as such do not cover the syllabii of various Indian Universities effectively. Hence a book is needed which should assimilate subject matter that should primarily satisfy the requirements of the students from syllabus/examination point of view ; these requirements are completely met by this book. The book entails the following features:

— The presentation of the subject matter is very systematic and language of the text is quite lucid and simple to understand. 

— A number of figures have been added in each chapter to make the subject matter self-speaking to a great extent. 

— A large number of properly graded examples have been added in various chapters to enable the students to attempt different types of questions in the examination without any difficulty. 

— Highlights, objective type questions, theoretical questions, and unsolved examples have been added at the end of each chapter to make the book a complete unit in all respects.

The author’s thanks are due to his wife Ramesh Rajput for rendering all assistance during preparation and proof reading of the book. The author is thankful to Mr. R.K. Syal for drawing beautiful and well proportioned figures for the book. The author is grateful to M/s Laxmi Publications for taking lot of pains in bringing out the book in time and pricing it moderately inspite of heavy cost of the printing. Constructive criticism is most welcome from the readers.
