Principles of Turbomachinery, 2nd Edition provides students and practicing engineers with a book that allows readers to easily move from a study of the most successful textbooks on thermodynamics and fluid dynamics to the subject of turbomachinery. Laid out in a logical order so that more difficult material is left to the later sections the book builds concepts systematically as progress is made through each chapter allowing instructors to customize and tailor the book to their courses.
The new edition includes 50% more exercise problems and replaces MATLAB/EES for all the examples and exercises for which computer calculations are needed with GNU/OCTAVE, a free software.
Chapters include: Thermodynamics, Compressible Flow, Principles of Turbomachinery Analysis, Steam Turbines, Axial Turbines, Axial Compressors, Centrifugal Compressors and Pumps, Radial Inflow Turbines, Hydraulic Turbines, Hydraulic Transmission of Power, Wind Turbines
