Gas Turbine Theory, 5th edition HIH Saravanamuttoo, GFC Rogers, H Cohen When the First Edition of this book was written fifty years ago, the gas turbine was just becoming established as a powerplant for military aircraft. It took another decade before the gas turbine was introduced to civil aircraft, and this market developed so rapidly that the ocean liner was rendered obsolete. Other markets like naval propulsion, pipeline compression and electrical power applications grew steadily. In recent years the gas turbine, in combination with the steam turbine, has played an ever-increasing role in power generation. Despite the rapid advances in both output and efficiency, the basic theory of the gas turbine has remained unchanged. The layout of this new edition is broadly similar to the original, but greatly expanded and updated, comprising an outline of the basic theory, aerodynamic design of individual components, and the prediction of off-design performance. Descriptions of engine developments and current markets make this book useful to both students and practising engineers. FEATURES: - completely updated to cover current industry requirements and applications - coverage of both aircraft and industrial gas turbines - includes detailed treatment of off-design performance - incorporates in-depth examples throughout - based on the authors' extensive teaching and professional experience Gas Turbine Theory is the classic course text on gas turbines, suitable for both undergraduate and graduate students of mechanical and aeronautical engineering. This new edition will also continue to be a valuable reference for practising gas turbine engineers. THE AUTHORS H.I.H. Saravanamuttoo, Professor Emeritus, Dept of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, has many years experience in the gas turbine industry on both sides of the Atlantic, and is a Past President of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute. G.F.C. Rogers was, until retirement, Professor of Engineering Thermodynamics at the University of Bristol. He is author, with Y.R. Mayhew, of Engineering Thermodynamics Work and Heat Transfer, 4th edition. The late H. Cohen, was formerly University Lecturer and Director of Studies in Engineering at Queen's College, Cambridge.

He was also a member of the SAE AC-9C Aircraft Icing Technology Subcommittee of the Aircraft Environmental Systems Committee of SAE and the Fluid Dynamics Technical Committee of AIAA This book is intended for junior and senior engineering students who are interested in learning some fundamental aspects of fluid mechanics. We developed this text to be used as a first course. The principles considered are classical and have been well-established for many years. However, fluid mechanics education has improved with experience in the classroom, and we have brought to bear in this book our own ideas about the teaching of this interesting and important subject. This seventh edition has been prepared after several years of experience by the authors using the previous editions for introductory courses in fluid mechanics. On the basis of this experience, along with suggestions from reviewers, colleagues, and students, we have made a number of changes in this edition. The changes (listed below, and indicated by the word New in descriptions in this preface) are made to clarify, update, and expand certain ideas and concepts. New to This Edition In addition to the continual effort of updating the scope of the material presented and improving the presentation of all of the material, the following items are new to this edition. With the widespread use of new technologies involving the web, DVDs, digital cameras and the like, there is an increasing use and appreciation of the variety of visual tools available for learning. As in recent editions, this fact has been addressed in the new edition by continuing to include additional new illustrations, graphs, photographs, and videos. Illustrations: New illustrations and graphs have been added to this edition, as well as updates to past ones. The book now contains nearly 1600 illustrations. These illustrations range from simple ones that help illustrate a basic concept or equation to more complex ones that illustrate practical applications of fluid mechanics in our everyday lives. Photographs: This edition has also added new photographs throughout the book to enhance the text. The total number of photographs now exceeds 300. Some photos involve situations that are so common to us that we probably never stop to realize how fluids are involved in them. Others involve new and novel situations that are still baffling to us. The photos are also used to help the reader better understand the basic concepts and examples discussed. Combining the illustrations, graphs and photographs, the book has approximately 1900 visual aids. Videos: The video library has been enhanced by the addition of 19 new video segments directly related to the text material, as well as multiple updates to previous videos (i.e. same topic with an updated video clip). In addition to being strategically located at the appropriate places within the text, they are all listed, each with an appropriate thumbnail photo, in the video index. They illustrate many of the interesting and practical applications of real-world fluid phenomena. There are now 175 videos. Examples: The book contains 5 new example problems that involve various fluid flow fundamentals. Some of these examples also incorporate new PtD (Prevention through Design) discussion material. The PtD project, under the direction of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, involves, in part, the use of textbooks to encourage the proper design and use of workday equipment and material so as to reduce accidents and injuries in the workplace. Problems and Problem Types: Approximately 30% new homework problems have been added for this edition, with a total number of 1484 problems in the text (additional problems in WileyPLUS). Also, new multiple-choice concept questions (developed by Jay Martin and John Mitchell of the University of Wisconsin-Madison) have been added at the beginning of each Problems section. These questions test the students’ knowledge of basic chapter concepts. This edition has also significantly improved the homework problem integration with the WileyPLUS course management system. New icons have been introduced in the Problems section to help instructors and students identify which problems are available to be assigned within WileyPLUS for automatic grading, and which problems have tutorial help available. Author: A new co-author was brought on board for this edition. We are happy to welcome Dr. Alric P. Rothmayer. Within WileyPLUS: New What an Engineer Sees animations demonstrate an engineer’s perspective of everyday objects, and relates the transfer of theory to real life through the solution of a problem involving that everyday object. New Office-Hours Videos demonstrate the solution of selected problems, focusing specifically on those areas in which students typically run into difficulty, with video and voiceover. Over 700 homework problems from the text that can be assigned for automatic feedback and grading (34 new for the 7th edition). Including 65 GO (Guided Online) Tutorial problems (26 new for this edition). Key Features Illustrations, Photographs, and Videos Fluid mechanics has always been a “visual” subject—much can be learned by viewing various aspects of fluid flow. In this new edition we have made several changes to reflect the fact that with new advances in technology, this visual component is becoming easier to incorporate into the learning environment, for both access and delivery, and is an important component to the learning of fluid mechanics. Thus, new photographs and illustrations have been added to the book. Some of these are within the text material; some are used to enhance the example problems; and some are included as margin figures of the type shown in the left margin to more clearly illustrate various points discussed in the text. In addition, new video segments have been added, bringing the total number of video segments to 175. These video segments illustrate many interesting and practical applications of real-world fluid phenomena. Each video segment is identified at the appropriate location in the text material by a video icon and thumbnail photograph of the type shown in the left margin. The full video library is shown in the video index at the back of the book. Each video segment has a separate associated text description of what is shown in the video. There are many homework problems that are directly related to the topics in the videos. Examples One of our aims is to represent fluid mechanics as it really is—an exciting and useful discipline. To this end, we include analyses of numerous everyday examples of fluid-flow phenomena to which students and faculty can easily relate. In the seventh edition there are 5 new examples and a total of 164 examples that provide detailed solutions to a variety of problems. Some of the new examples incorporate Prevention through Design (PtD) material. Many of the examples illustrate what happens if one or more of the parameters is changed. This gives the user a better feel for some of the basic principles involved. In addition, many of the examples contain new photographs of the actual device or item involved in the example. Also, all of the examples are outlined and carried out with the problem solving methodology of “Given, Find, Solution, and Comment” as discussed on page 5 in the “Note to User” before Example 1.1. Fluids in the News The set of approximately 60 short “Fluids in the News” stories reflect some of the latest important, and novel, ways that fluid mechanics affects our lives. Many of these problems have homework problems associated with them. Preface
