Engineering Thermodynamics by P K Nag is widely accepted by the student community for its holistic and authoritative coverage of the topic. Presented in a lucid manner, the book is enriched with several pedagogical features. The approval of the book is such that it is revised from time to time to suit the interests of students, thus incorporating latest research findings and university exam patterns. The book follows a comprehensive approach such that Engineering students, teaching faculties, GATE aspirants, and those preparing for competitive exams can benefit from the book.
Engineering Thermodynamics is characterised by exhaustive study of topics such as thermodynamic applications, powerplant engineering, refrigeration, and automobile IC systems. The book includes separate chapters highlighting the various thermodynamics concepts such as temperature and gas laws, work and heat transfer, entropy, energy and its reversibility, and properties of gas and mixtures. Detailed accounts on refrigeration, vapour power, and gas power cycles, thermodynamic equilibrium and stability, compressors, and reactive systems have also been included in the book.
To help the candidates prepare for various competitive examinations, the appendix section is characterised by relevant information corresponding to the latest thermodynamic trends. In order to facilitate an easy understanding of the topic, the chapter on energy has been completely rewritten in this edition.
Published by Tata McGraw Hill Education in 2013, the fifth edition of Engineering Thermodynamics is available in paperback format.
The book is characterised by a number of solved examples of numerical problems that are specific to each chapter.
A summary of each chapter that compiles the essential points to remember, formulas, and laws is of great help to the students.
In addition to the solved examples, review questions and problems are also provided to test the understanding of the topic.
Several multiple choice questions compiled from the previous year's GATE question papers is another feature of the book.
