Principles of Turbomachinery in Air-Breathing Engines
This book, first published in 2006, is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical and aerospace engineering taking a course commonly called Principles of Turbomachinery or Aerospace Propulsion. The book begins with a review of basic thermodynamics and fluid mechanics principles to motivate their application to aerothermodynamics and real-life design issues. This approach is ideal for the reader who will face practical situations and design decisions in the gas turbine industry. Among the features of the book are: An emphasis on the role of entropy in assessing machine performance, A timely review of flow structures, Revisiting the subsonic and supersonic De Laval nozzle as it applies to bladed turbomachinery components, An applied review of boundary layer principles, And highlighting the importance of invariant properties across a turbomachinery component in carrying out real computational tasks. The text is fully supported by over 200 figures, numerous examples, and homework problems.
