The new edition will continue to be of use to engineers in industry and technological establishments, especially as brief reviews are included on many important aspects of Turbomachinery, giving pointers towards more advanced sources of information. For readers looking towards the wider reaches of the subject area, very useful additional reading is referenced in the bibliography. The subject of Turbomachinery is in continual review, and while the basics do not change, research can lead to refinements in popular methods, and new data can emerge. This book has applications for professionals and students in many subsets of the mechanical engineering discipline, with carryover into thermal sciences; which include fluid mechanics, combustion and heat transfer; dynamics and vibrations, as well as structural mechanics and materials engineering. An important, long overdue new chapter on Wind Turbines, with a focus on blade aerodynamics, with useful worked examples Includes important material on axial flow compressors and pumps Example questions and answers throughout

Turbomachines are those in which energy is transferred to or from a continuously moving fluid by the motion of a rotating element. Some of the most common and important machines used in engineering and industry fall into this category, including those which absorb power (and thereby increase fluid pressure), such as fans, compressors and pumps. Also included are equally vital varieties of machines which generate power from the expansion of fluids to lower pressures such as hydraulic, steam and gas turbines. This general definition embraces a number of devices that are classified as 'open', such as propellers, windmills and unshrouded fans. The machines examined here are those defined as 'closed', where a finite quantity of fluid can be considered to pass through the machine in unit time, for it is these which are of the most interest to students and professionals in the fields of mechanical, chemical, and plant engineering. It is in these areas that the devices that form the subject matter of this book find their most important applications, making this treatment of vital importance to anyone working in or studying them. Example questions and answers throughout Includes more new material on axial flow compressors and pumps

Turbomachinery is a challenging and diverse field, with applications for professionals and students in many subsets of the mechanical engineering discipline, including fluid mechanics, combustion and heat transfer, dynamics and vibrations, as well as structural mechanics and materials engineering. Originally published more than 40 years ago, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Turbomachinery is the leading turbomachinery textbook. 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. For this new edition, author S. Larry Dixon is joined by Cesare Hall from the University of Cambridge, whose diverse background of teaching, research and work experience in the area of turbomachines is well suited to the task of reorganizing and updating this classic text. Contents: Introduction: Basic Principles; Dimensional Analysis: Similitude; Two-dimensional Cascades; Axial-flow Turbines: Mean-line Analysis and Design; Axial-flow Compressors and Ducted Fans; Three-dimensional Flows in Axial Turbomachines; Centrifugal Pumps, Fans and Compressors; Radial Flow Gas Turbines; Hydraulic Turbines; Wind Turbines; Appendices NEW AND KEY FEATURES Provides the most comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of turbomachinery of any text in the field Content has been reorganized to more closely match how instructors currently teach the course Coverage of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, the basis on which good turbomachine performance depends, has been moved to the front of the book Includes new design studies of several turbomachines, applying the theories developed in the book Figures have been updated, along with new photos added, to better illustrate the topics presented Includes new examples and additional end-of-chapter exercises

Worked Examples in Turbomachinery (Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics) is a publication designed to supplement the materials in Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics of Turbomachinery, Second Edition. The title provides detailed solution for the unanswered problems from the main textbook. The text first covers dimensional analysis, and then proceeds to tackling thermodynamics. Next, the selection discusses two-dimensional cascades. The text also talks about axial flow turbines and compressors, along with the three-dimensional flow in axial turbo machines. Chapter 7 covers centrifugal compressor and pumps, while Chapter 8 tackles radial flow turbines. The book will be of great use to students of mechanical engineering, particularly those who have access to the main textbook.
