Turbomachines are those in which energy is transferred to or from a continuously moving fluid by the motion of a rotating element. Some of the most common and important machines used in engineering and industry fall into this category, including those which absorb power (and thereby increase fluid pressure), such as fans, compressors and pumps. Also included are equally vital varieties of machines which generate power from the expansion of fluids to lower pressures such as hydraulic, steam and gas turbines. This general definition embraces a number of devices that are classified as 'open', such as propellers, windmills and unshrouded fans. The machines examined here are those defined as 'closed', where a finite quantity of fluid can be considered to pass through the machine in unit time, for it is these which are of the most interest to students and professionals in the fields of mechanical, chemical, and plant engineering. It is in these areas that the devices that form the subject matter of this book find their most important applications, making this treatment of vital importance to anyone working in or studying them. Example questions and answers throughout Includes more new material on axial flow compressors and pumps

Revised and updated, this well established and highly successful book gives a competent account of the fundamental theory of turbomachines. A concise and unified approach to the subject is employed which fills the need for a comprehensive introductory text suitable for most engineering curricula. The theoretical approach, based firmly on the fundamental principles of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, makes the book particularly suitable for undergraduate courses. It has also proved very useful to professional engineers who require a relevant text on the basic physical processes in turbomachines and their theoretical representation. Several modifications have been incorporated in the text in the light of recent advances in the subject. Further information on cavitation has been included and a new section on the optimum design of a pump inlet taking account of cavitation limitations has been added. Certain chapters have been extended: the section on 'Constant specific mass flow' design now includes the flow equations for a following rotor row, and the section on the definition of blade shapes has been extended to include the parabolic arc camber line blade. A list of symbols used in the text has been added. Each chapter contains a selection of useful problems and answers are provided at the end of the book. SI/Metric units are used throughout

Worked Examples in Turbomachinery (Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics) is a publication designed to supplement the materials in Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics of Turbomachinery, Second Edition. The title provides detailed solution for the unanswered problems from the main textbook. The text first covers dimensional analysis, and then proceeds to tackling thermodynamics. Next, the selection discusses two-dimensional cascades. The text also talks about axial flow turbines and compressors, along with the three-dimensional flow in axial turbo machines. Chapter 7 covers centrifugal compressor and pumps, while Chapter 8 tackles radial flow turbines. The book will be of great use to students of mechanical engineering, particularly those who have access to the main textbook.

Die amerikanische Ausgabe dieses Buches erschien 1947 in der dritten, nicht unwesentlich erweiterten Auflage. Der Verfasser erwähnt in seinem Vorwort, daß es ursprünglich aus dem Text von Vorlesungen an der Design School der W estinghouse Company entstand und zu nächst für den Unterrichtsgebrauch an der Harvard Engineering School herausgegeben wurde. In die Neuauflage wurden neue Veröffentlichungen und eigene Erfahrungen eingearbeitet. Im Vorwort der deutschen Erstauflage (1936) wurde darauf hin gewiesen, daß das vorliegende Buch eine glückliche, dem ingenieur mäßigen Denken entsprechende Anschaulichkeit hat. Der Verfasser ver meidet es, lediglich Gebrauchsanweisungen für Rechenvorschriften zu geben; andererseits verzichtet er auf die Ausarbeitung der vollstän digen, strengen Theorie. Er versteht es, dem Leser die wesentlichen Zusammenhänge auch verwickelter Erscheinungen plausibel zu machen. So vermittelt die Darstellung nicht einen höheren theoreti schen Überblick, sondern leitet den Leser mit einfacher mathematischer oder anschaulicher mechanischer Begründung auf einen Weg, der in praktischen Schwingungsfragen zur zahlenmäßigen Lösung, mindestens aber zu einer guten Annäherung der "exakten" Lösung führt. Eine Fülle von Beispielen und Aufgaben regt dazu an, die Beherrschung der dargelegten Rechenverfahren zu erproben und zu vertiefen. Aus diesen Gründen erfolgte die Übersetzung in die deutsche Sprache. Inzwischen ist die amerikanische Ausgabe mit großem Erfolg im Hochschulunterricht eingesetzt worden. Den deutschen Leser inter essiert vielleicht der Hinweis, daß der Hochschulunterricht in Amerika von der europäischen Art sehr verschieden ist. Die Vorlesungen werden nach einem bestimmten "Textbuch" gelesen.

During the last decade, rapid advances have been made in the area of flow analysis in the components of gas turbine engines. Improving the design methods of turbomachine blade rows and under standing of the flow phenomena through them, has become one of the major research topics for aE'rodynamists. This increase of research efforts is due to the need of reducing the weight and fuel consumption of turbojet engines for the same thrust levels. One way of achieving this is to design more efficient components working at high local velocities. Design efforts can lead to desired results only if the details of flow through the blade rows are understood. It is also known that for aircraft propulsion systems development, time and cost can be reduced significantly if the perf ormance can be predicted with conf idence and enough precision. This· generally iK:eds sophisticated two or three dimensional computer codes that can give enough information for design and performance prediction. In the recent years, designers also started to use these sophisticated codes more and more with confidence, in connection with computer aided design and manufacturing techniques. On the other hand, the modelling and solution of flow and the meast
