1 Review
Hydraulic Machines (Fluid Machinery) has been designed as a textbook for engineering students specializing in mechanical, civil, electrical, hydraulics, chemical and power engineering. The highlights of the book are simple language supported by analytical and graphical illustrations. A large number of theory questions and numerical problems with solution hints have been annexed at the end of every chapter. A large number of objective questions have been included to help the students opting for competitive examinations. Five case studies based on research have been included which can be advantageously used by practising engineers pursuing research design and consultancy careers. Complete design of hydraulic machines has been demonstrated with the help of suitable examples.

The book has been divided into six parts containing 13 chapters.
