About the Authors
  • Acquire complete knowledge of the basics of air-breathing turbomachinery with this hands-on practical text. This updated new edition for students in mechanical and aerospace engineering discusses the role of entropy in assessing machine performance, provides a review of flow structures, and includes an applied review of boundary layer principles. New coverage describes approaches used to smooth initial design geometry into a continuous flow path, the development of design methods associated with the flow over blade shape (cascades loss theory) and annular type flows, as well as a discussion of the mechanisms for the setting of shaft speed. This essential text is also fully supported by over 200 figures, numerous examples, and homework problems, many of which have been revised for this edition.

    • More up-to-date presentation
    • More coverage on aerothermodynamics of turbomachines
    • Real world examples and applications drawn from industry

    Reviews & endorsements

    ‘Principles of Turbomachinery in Air-Breathing Engines distinguishes itself as an extraordinary text with the exceptional detail and clarity of the annotated figures and illustrations, which truly exemplify and support the development of the corresponding aerothermodynamic mathematics. The work is a very thorough and clear treatment of the subject, suitable for upperclassmen and graduate students, as well as practitioners.’ Jani Macari Pallis, University of Bridgeport
