Turbomachinery is a diverse field, with applications for professionals and students in areas as diverse as windmills, aircraft engines, and hydraulic pumps. Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Turbomachinery is the leading turbomachinery book due to its balanced coverage of theory and application. Starting with background principles in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, the authors go on to discuss axial flow turbines and compressors, centrifugal pumps, fans, and compressors, and radial flow gas turbines, hydraulic turbines, and wind turbines. In this new edition,more coverage is devoted to modern approaches to analysis and design, including CFD and FEA techniques. Used as a core text in senior undergraduate and graduate level courses this book will also appeal to professional engineers in the aerospace, global power, oil & gas and other industries who are involved in the design and operation of turbomachines. Comprehensive and balanced coverage of theory and applications in turbomachinery, making the book useful for both students and professionals In addition to the fundamentals, provides preliminary design procedures for several types of devices One of the only available turbomachinery texts to include chapters on wind turbines and hydraulic turbines, growing application areas in Renewable Energy
