Refrigeration and Air Conditioning by Ramesh Chandra Arora. This textbook on refrigeration and air conditioning is an outcome of 30 years’ teaching experience of late Professor (Dr.) Ramesh Chandra Arora at the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. It is intended to lead students to a deeper understanding and a firm grasp of the basic
principles of this fast-growing subject area. The text is ideally suited for undergraduate education in mechanical engineering programmes and specialized postgraduate education in thermosciences. The book is designed to typically appeal to those who like a more rigorous presentation. After recapitulation of the basic foundations of refrigeration, the follow-on chapters are devoted to exhaustive coverage of principles, applications and design of several types of refrigeration.

The presentation of the subject is divided into two areas, i.e. refrigeration topics in Chapters 1 to 14 and air conditioning topics in Chapters 15 to 23. Chapter 2, however, may be treated as common between these areas as it comprehensively reviews the basic principles of thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics which constitute the three pillars of refrigeration and air conditioning.
