This hallmark text on Machine Design almost covers the entire syllabus of all Indian Universities and Polytechnics. Each chapter is written in a simple, crisp and logical way, explaining the theoretical considerations in design of machine elements. The language is lucid and easy to understand yet precisely scientific. It covers the topics in entirety meaning thereby that for a particular topic, all the facets associated with it have been dealt in a very methodical and logical manner.
The book covers fundamental concepts, description, terminology, force analysis and methods of analysis and design of various machine elements like Curved Beams, Springs, Spur, Helical, Bevel and Worm Gears, Clutches, Brakes, Belts, Ropes, Chains, Ball Bearings and Journal Bearings. The emphasis in treating the machine elements is on the methods and procedures that give the student enough competence in applying these methods and procedures to mechanical components in general. This book offers the students to learn to use the best available design knowledge together with empirical information, logical judgment, and often a degree of ingenuity in mechanical engineering design. Following are the...

Textbook of Astronomy and Astrophysics with Elements of Cosmology
Designed for students who have a basic understanding of physics and mathematics, this text provides a fundamental, three-in-one introduction to astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology. The astronomy section explores fundamental topics such as the celestial coordinate system, stellar classification schemes, H-R diagrams, and the masses and radii of stars. The astrophysics section addresses stellar structure, stellar atmospheres, energy generation in stars, and nucleosynthesis. Also covering galactic structure and rotation, the cosmology section introduces the Robertson-Walker metric and Friedman models of the universe and discusses the present status of the Hubble constant along with problems associated with the age of the universe. Numerous problems, diagrams, and up-to-date references make this an ideal introductory text for graduate courses in physics, mathematics, space physics, or any program for which astronomy is an option.
Based on the principles of engineering science, physics and mathematics, but assuming only an elementary understanding of these, Race Car Design masterfully explains the theory and practice of the subject. Bringing together key topics, including the chassis frame, tyres, suspension, steering and brakes, this is the first text to cover all the essential elements of race car design in one student-friendly textbook. Race Car Design: - Features a wealth of illustrations, including a full-colour plate section - Demonstrates the important role of computer tools - Uses dozens of clear examples and calculations to illustrate both theory and practical applications - Is written by an experienced author, known for his engaging and accessible style This book is an ideal accompaniment for motorsport engineering students and is the best possible resource for those involved in Formula Student/FSAE. It is also a valuable guide for practising car designers and enthusiasts.
