- Addition of numerical and computational tools, including more discussion of CFD and FEA techniques to reflect modern practice in the area
- More end-of-chapter exercises and in-chapter worked examples
- One of the only available turbomachinery texts to include wind turbines and hydraulic turbines
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. Long a core text in senior undergraduate and graduate level courses, this book is also useful to professional engineers in the aerospace, global power, oil and gas, and other industries.
Professional mechanical, civil, automotive, aeronautical, and control engineers; advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical, civil, automotive and aeronautical engineering
