This comprehensive textbook is unique in its design-focused approach to turbomachinery and gas turbines. It offers students and practicing engineers methods for configuring these machines to perform with the highest possible efficiency. Examples and problems are based on the actual design of turbomachinery and turbines. After an introductory chapter that outlines the goals of the book and provides definitions of terms and parts, the book offers a brief review of the basic principles of thermodynamics and efficiency definitions. The rest of the book is devoted to the analysis and design of real turbomachinery configurations and gas turbines, based on a consistent application of thermodynamic theory and a more empirical treatment of fluid dynamics that relies on the extensive use of design charts. Topics include turbine power cycles, diffusion and diffusers, the analysis and design of three-dimensional free-stream flow, and combustion systems and combustion calculations. The second edition updates every chapter, adding material on subjects that include flow correlations, energy transfer in turbomachines, and three-dimensional design. A solutions manual is available for instructors. This new MIT Press edition makes a popular text available again, with corrections and some updates, to a wide audience of students, professors, and professionals.

Technology: Engineering. General Gas Turbines A Handbook of Air, Land and Sea Applications Claire Soares Registered professional engineer in Texas, turbo machinery specialist in the oil and gas, power generation, and process industries. Currently serves as managing director of EMM Systems in Dallas, Texas. KEY FEATURES . Overview of major components, with a brief history of theory and development . Important maintenance-related chapters . Unique offering of manufacturer's specifications and performance criteria and future trends . One-of-a-kind guidance on the economics and business management of turbine selection, as well as on installation and instrumentation/calibration No other current publication offers the professional engineer or technician the wealth of useful guidance on nearly every aspect of gas turbine design, installation, operation, maintenance and repair as this bookdoes. Gas Turbines makes the job of any engineer involved in the design, selection, operation and maintenance of most nearly any type of gas turbine more efficient and more successful. The book offers the reader a "big picture" view of how to make the right decisions when planning what type of gas turbine to use for a particular application, taking into consideration not only operational requirements but long-term life-cycle costs in upkeep and repair and future usage. Concise overviews of all important theoretical bases in thermodynamics and fluid dynamics upon which gas turbine engines depend are presented. The author is an experienced industry consultant, with experience at such leading manufacturers of gas turbines as GE and Rolls Royce and relates how factors affect proper design, correct selection and specifications, and long-term successful operation for the application in question.. The book offers professional engineers hard-to-find manufacturer's data with extensive interpretation and explanation.
