The primary purpose of this book is to provide an integrated overview of incompressible flow turbomachines and their design, in this case pumps and turbines. Theory and empirical knowledge of turbomachines are brought together in detail to form a framework for a basic understanding of this complex subject. A step-by-step approach is used by means of solved problems at the end of each chapter to accomplish this. �Presents a clear overview of incompressible flow turbomachines �Treats both types of turbomachines in one text �Includes a large number of illustative solved problems

Das Buch ist eine zusammengefaßte und z.T. erweiterte Ausarbeitung der Vorlesungen über Flugzeugtriebwerke und Gasturbinenantriebe für Studenten des Flugzeugbaus. Ein allgemein verständlicher Überblick über die verschiedenen Typen von Triebwerken und die Funktionsweise ihrer Hauptkomponenten ermöglicht einen vereinfachten Einstieg in die Theorie der Flugzeugtriebwerke und schafft so eine breite Grundlage, mit der eine sehr große Anzahl von grundlegenden Begriffen und von technisch/physikalischen Zusammenhängen anschaulich definiert werden können. In den anschließenden Kapiteln wird die jeweils erforderliche Theorie hinzugefügt und diese durch mehr als 30 ausführliche Beispielrechnungen veranschaulicht.

A comprehensive introduction to turbomachines and their applications With up–to–date coverage of all types of turbomachinery for students and practitioners, Fundamentals of Turbomachinery covers machines from gas, steam, wind, and hydraulic turbines to simple pumps, fans, blowers, and compressors used throughout industry. After reviewing the history of turbomachinery and the fluid mechanical principles involved in their design and operation, the book focuses on the application and selection of machines for various uses, teaching basic theory as well as how to select the right machine for a specific use. With a practical emphasis on engineering applications of turbomachines, this book discusses the full range of both turbines and pumping devices. For each type, the author explains: ∗ Basic principles ∗ Preliminary design procedure ∗ Ideal performance characteristics ∗ Actual performance curves published by the manufacturers ∗ Application and appropriate selection of the machine Throughout, worked sample problems illustrate the principles discussed and end–of–chapter problems, employing both SI and the English system of units, provide practice to help solidify the reader′s grasp of the material.

Turbomachinery is a challenging and diverse field, with applications for professionals and students in many subsets of the mechanical engineering discipline, including fluid mechanics, combustion and heat transfer, dynamics and vibrations, as well as structural mechanics and materials engineering. Originally published more than 40 years ago, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Turbomachinery is the leading turbomachinery textbook. 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 & gas and other industries who are involved in the design and operation of turbomachines. For this new edition, author S. Larry Dixon is joined by Cesare Hall from the University of Cambridge, whose diverse background of teaching, research and work experience in the area of turbomachines is well suited to the task of reorganizing and updating this classic text. Provides the most comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of turbomachinery of any text in the field Content has been reorganized to more closely match how instructors currently teach the course, with coverage of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics moved to the front of the book Includes new design studies of several turbomachines, applying the theories developed in the book
