Engineering designs are challenging during extreme operating conditions in terms of pressure and temperature. Recent innovations helped mankind reach regions, which were once inaccessible. Innovations in material, model, sensors and designs have helped mankind create robust and reliable wonders that work almost anywhere. This book pays tribute to such innovation and highlights the engineering development that made it possible. This book describes how engineering systems behave in various conditions by using examples ranging from oil and application to jet engines, and cryogenic cooling for space applications to plasma deposition. It also covers innovations and advancements in these fields.
