Intended as a text for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Chemical/Mechanical/Materials Engineering streams, this well-balanced book explains the fundamental principles and the applied aspects of cryogenic engineering. The author, with her vast and varied experience in teaching and allied fields, clearly enunciates the behaviour and various properties of common cryogenic fluids, methods of liquefaction, and separation and applications of cryogens with thermodynamic analysis for process selection.
This profusely illustrated study with clear-cut diagrams and process charts, should serve not only as a textbook for students but also as an excellent reference for researchers and practising engineers on design of cryogenic refrigeration, and liquefaction and separation process plants for various applications.
Key Features :
Discusses various application areas of cryogenics including cryogenic propellants used in space propulsion systems.
Analyzes measurement techniques for temperature, pressure, flow rate, and liquid level, and describes the unique behaviour of cryogenic fluids and materials at cryo-temperatures.
Gives numerous solved problems and exercises that lay emphasis on honing the concepts discussed.
