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 and 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

Editorial Reviews

"This enduring turbomachinery textbook has been around since 1966 and is entering its sixth edition this year. Changes from the previous edition reflect advances in the field. The authors tell us in the preface, for example, that the text puts more emphasis on the effects of compressibility, reflecting "advances in the use of higher flow and blade speeds in turbomachinery." - review in Mechanical Engineering
