Turbo Machines Design and Control is designed to serve as a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students of mechanical engineering and aerospace engineering. It covers the design aspects of thermal power plant, jets engines, and wind mills; the aerodynamic principles of turbomachines; velocity diagrams and their applications in the design of radial and axial flow machines; and the thermodynamic analysis of the turbomachines. A chapter on units and dimensions and compressible fluid flow is also included. Key features: Units, dimensions and dimensional analysis. Foundations on compressible fluid flow. Aerodynamic analysis of body in fluid flow. Power equations of turbomachines. Velocity diagrams and their applications in radial and axial flow machine design. Fundamentals of classical control theory as applied to turbomachines. Application of modern control theory in jet engine control. Advance topics, such as air breathing engines, rockets, SCRAM jets and the mechanics of flying in birds and insects.

The primary purpose of this book is to provide an integrated overview of incompressible flow turbomachines and their design, in this case pumps and turbines. Theory and empirical knowledge of turbomachines are brought together in detail to form a framework for a basic understanding of this complex subject. A step-by-step approach is used by means of solved problems at the end of each chapter to accomplish this. �Presents a clear overview of incompressible flow turbomachines �Treats both types of turbomachines in one text �Includes a large number of illustative solved problems

This book explores the working principles of all kinds of turbomachines. The same theoretical framework is used to analyse the different machine types. Fundamentals are first presented and theoretical concepts are then elaborated for particular machine types, starting with the simplest ones.For each machine type, the author strikes a balance between building basic understanding and exploring knowledge of practical aspects. Readers are invited through challenging exercises to consider how the theory applies to particular cases and how it can be generalised. The book is primarily meant as a course book. It teaches fundamentals and explores applications. It will appeal to senior undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical engineering and to professional engineers seeking to understand the operation of turbomachines. Readers will gain a fundamental understanding of turbomachines. They will also be able to make a reasoned choice of turbomachine for a particular application and to understand its operation. Basic design of the simplest turbomachines as a centrifugal fan, an axial steam turbine or a centrifugal pump, is also possible using the topics covered in the book.

Turbomachinery presents the theory and design of turbomachines with step-by-step procedures and worked-out examples. This comprehensive reference emphasizes fundamental principles and construction guidelines for enclosed rotators and contains end-of-chapter problem and solution sets, design formulations, and equations for clear understanding of key aspects in machining function, selection, assembly, and construction. Offering a wide range of illustrative examples, the book evaluates the components of incompressible and compressible fluid flow machines and analyzes the kinematics and dynamics of turbomachines with valuable definitions, diagrams, and dimensionless parameters.

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. More coverage of a variety of types of turbomachinery, including centrifugal pumps and gas turbines 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
