After reviewing the history of turbomachinery and the fluid mechanical principles involved in their design and operation, the book focuses on the application and selection of machines for various uses, teaching basic theory as well as how to select the right machine for a specific by: Principles of Turbomachinery By R.K. Turton – The text is based on a course on turbomachinery which the author has taught since year as a technical elective. Topics include; Energy Transfer in Turbomachines, Gas and Steam Turbines, and Hydraulic Turbines. Book Description: Turbomachinery Design and Theory (Mechanical Engineering) by Rama S. R. Gorla, Aijaz A. Khan eBook covers theory and design of turbomachines with procedures and worked-out solved examples. This reference book emphasizes fundamental principles and construction guidelines for enclosed rotators and contains at the end of each chapter problem and solution sets, design formulations and equations for a clear understanding of key aspects of turbo . This book was originally conceived as a text for students in their final year reading for an honors degree in engineering that included turbomachinery as a main subject. It was also found to be a useful support for students embarking on postgraduate courses at masters Size: 6MB.
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, . The book was originally perceived as a text for students taking an Honours degree in engineering which included turbomachines as well as assisting those undertaking more advanced postgraduate courses in the subject. The book was written for engi-neers rather than mathematicians. Much stress is laid on physical concepts rather. What is Turbomachinery? Using working fluids to Boost output, either increase or decrease pressure by using Machinery From BWIP pump pocket book Ns Fluids Engineering Division Annual Summer Meeting, New Orleans, LA, 29 May Pump Configurations • From Huzel, D. K. and Huang, D. H. This book explains basic concepts of Turbomachines in a short and intelligent way. In first two-three chapters basic concepts are covered and after that general analysis of turbomachines. After this specific types of turbomachines are covered in the book. The content is always to the point and clear. A good book to learn things quickly.4/5(8).
