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.
This book, which is a result of the author's many years of teaching, exposes the readers to the fundamentals of mechanical vibrations and noise engineering. It provides them with the tools essential to tackle the problem of vibrations produced in machines and structures due to unbalanced forces and the noise produced thereof. The text lays emphasis on mechanical engineering applications of the subject and develops conceptual understanding with the help of many worked-out examples. What distinguishes the text is that three chapters are devoted to Sound Level and Subjective Response to Sound, Noise: Effects, Ratings and Regulations and Noise: Sources, Isolation and Control. Importance of mathematical formulation in converting a distributed parameter vibration problem into an equivalent lumped parameter problem is also emphasized. Primarily designed as a text for undergraduate and postgraduate students of mechanical engineering, this book would also be useful for undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil, aeronautical and automobile engineering as well as practising engineers.
