An advent to Mechanical Engineering: half 2 is an important textual content for all second-year undergraduate scholars in addition to these learning beginning levels and HNDs. The textual content offers thorough insurance of the next middle engineering topics:

  1. Fluid dynamics
  2. Thermodynamics
  3. Solid mechanics
  4. Control concept and techniques
  5. Mechanical energy, rather a lot and transmissions
  6. Structural vibration

As good as mechanical engineers, the textual content may be hugely suitable to automobile, aeronautical/aerospace and normal engineering students.

The fabric during this e-book has complete scholar and lecturer aid on an accompanying site at, which includes:

  • worked recommendations for exam-style questions
  • multiple-choice self-assessment
  • revision material

The textual content is written by means of an skilled staff of teachers on the the world over popular collage of Nottingham.

Then, the product of these variables with one additional variable from (n 2 m) remaining physical variables will give the non-dimensional quantities. For example, if there are five physical variables n1, n2, n3, n4 and n5 which contain three basic dimensions M, L and T, then there are two (5 2 3 5 2) non-dimensional quantities to describe this physical process (Part 1). Picking n1, n2 and n3 physical variables, the non-dimensional quantities p1 and p2 can be given by multiplying n1, n2 and n3 by n4 and n5, respectively, in such a way that p1 and p2 will become non-dimensional (Part 2) by choosing the powers a, b, c, d, e, f, g and h appropriately.

Weber number, We, indicates a relative magnitude of the inertial force to the surface tension. This non-dimensional number becomes important when there is significant effect of surface tension in the flow phenomena, such as the droplets and in capillary flows. 40 shows a sequence of pictures to show the break-up of droplets, where the Weber number plays a significant role in determining its behaviour. 40 The break-up of droplets is governed by the Weber number Grashof number, Gr, is defined as a ratio of the buoyancy force to the viscous force.

Note that the exit losses are K 5 1 for all exit shapes. (F. M. White, 2008, Fluid Mechanics, New York: McGraw Reproduced with permission The McGraw-Hill An Hill. 33 An Introduction to Mechanical Engineering: Part 2 Barking Dog Art Fluid dynamics Hydraulic diameter When the pipes and ducts are not circular, we can use the hydraulic diameter Dh in place for the diameter of the circular pipe to calculate pipe losses. 64) With this concept, we can obtain the friction factor of non-circular pipes and ducts using the Moody chart just as we have obtained the friction factor for a circular pipe from it.
