Default Re: indian engineering services syllabus for mechanical engineering

A combined three-stage competitive examination (comprising five tests), called the Engineering Services Examination (ESE) is conducted by the UPSC for recruitment to the Indian Engineering Services. IES remain the most sought-after careers for the engineering graduates in India.

the Syllabus of the Mechanical Engineering is given below

Syllabus of the Mechanical Engineering


1) Thermodynamics-

Thermodynamics is a branch of science which is concerned with the relations between heat and other forms of energy involved in chemical and physical processes. It include

Thermodynamics, Basic concepts, Open and Closed systems, Cycles and IC Engines.
Application to non-Flow and Flow processes, Zeroth, First and Second Law.
Availability, Tds and Irreversibility relations, Entropy.
Heat and work.
Properties of ideal gases and vapours ,Claperyron and real gas equations.
Gas power and Refrigeration cycles, Standard vapour.
C-I and S.I. Engines.
Two stage compressor.
Pre-ignition, Fuel injection and Carburation, Detonation and Diesel-knock, Supercharging.

Emission & Control ,Flue gas analysis, Measurement of Calorific values, Engine Cooling, Turbo-prop and Rocket engines.
Elements of Nuclear power production , Conventional and Nuclear fuels.

2) Heat Transfer and Refrigeration and Airconditioning -

An air conditioning system’s efficiency depends on how well it moves heat. Heat always travels from warm material to cold material and the reverse is never true. This part includes

Heat Transfer and Airconditioning and Refrigeration .
One dimensional steady and unsteady conduction.
Modes of heat transfer.
Equivalent Resistance and Composite slab .
Heat dissipation from extended surfaces, Overall heat transfer coefficient, Heat exchangers, Thermal boundary layer over a flat plate ,Empirical correlations for heat transfer in laminar and turbulent flows and for free and forced Convection.

Shape factor, Fundamentals of diffusive and connective mass transfer, Enclosure theory, Black body and basic concepts in Radiation, Net work analysis.
Refrigerants, Heat pump and Refrigeration cycles and systems.

Condensers, Psychrometry, Charts and application to air conditioning, Evaporates and Expansion devices, Sensible heating and cooling, comfort indices, Load calculations, Solar refrigeration, Effective temperature, controls, Duct design.

3) Fluid Mechanics-

Majority of the mechanical processing operations are carried out either partially or completely in fluid system so for mechanical engineers it is important to have a knowledge about fluid mechanism. Handling fluid is considered to be chapear and less troublesome when compared with solids. This section includes

Properties and classification of fluids, Manometry, Center of pressure, Elements of stability of floating bodies, forces on immersed surfaces, Buoyancy.
Irrotational and incompressible.
Kinematics and Dynamics.
Inviscid flow.
Pressure field and Forces on immersed bodies ,Velocity potential.
Bernoulli’s equation, Pressure drop calculations, Fully developed flow through pipes, Measurement of flow rate and Pressure drop.
Integral approach, Separations, Elements of boundary layer theory , Laminar and tubulent flows.
Flow over weirs and notches.
Hydraulic jump ,Open channel flow.
Dimensional analysis, Dimensionless numbers and Similitude and modelling .
Flow through convergent – divergent ducts, One-dimensional isentropic flow, Normal shock wave, Rayleigh and Fanno lines ,Oblique shock-wave.

4) Fluid Machinery and Steam Generators –

This part most often deals with the problem related with fluis behavior so understanding the behavior of the fluid is an essential aspect. So this part mainly includes

Performance, Classification , Specific speed, Operation and control of hydraulic Pump and impulse and reaction Turbines.
Energy transfer, Power transmission, Coupling, Steam generators Fire-tube and water-tube boilers.
Wetness and condensation ,Flow of steam through Nozzles and Diffusers.
Partial admission.
Velocity diagrams ,Various types of steam and gas Turbines.
Reciprocating, Multistage compression, role of Mach Number, Efficiency, Centrifugal and axial flow Compressors, Reheat, Regeneration, Governance.

Mechanical Engineering Paper-2 Syllabus:

This part is for both objective and conventional type papers :
