Principles of turbomachinery / Seppo A. Korpela.

By: Korpela, S. A.
Publisher: Hoboken, N.J. : Wiley, c2011Description: xvi, 457 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9780470536728 (hardback); 0470536721 (hardback).Subject(s): Turbomachines | TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING / Chemical & Biochemical | Strömungsmaschine
Incomplete contents:
Introduction -- 2. Principles of Thermodynamics and Fluid Flow.-- 3. Compressible Flow through Nozzles.-- 4. Principles of Turbomachine Analysis. -- 5. Steam Turbines -- 6. Axial Turbines.-- 7. Axial compressors. -- 8. Centrifugal Compressors and Pumps. -- 9. Radial Inflow Turbines. -- 10. Hydraulic Turbines. -- 11. Hydraulic Transmission of Power. -- 12. Wind turbines. -- Appendix B. Thermodynamic Tables.References.Index.
Summary: "This text provides students and professionals at all levels with a highly accessible reference. The coverage allows for a smooth transition from the study of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and heat transfer to the subject of turbomachinery, with chapters organized so that more difficult material is left to the later sections. Chapters relate turbomachinery to new areas such as wind power and three-dimensional effects in axial turbomachines, providing information on several types of turbomachinery rather than concentrating specifically on one type"--
