This book is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical and aerospace engineering taking a course commonly called Principles of Turbomachinery or Aerospace Propulsion. It begins with a review of basic thermodynamics and fluid mechanics principles to motivate their application to aerothermodynamics and real-life design issues. This approach is ideal for the reader who will face practical situations and design decisions in the gas turbine industry. Among the features of the book are: * An emphasis on the role of entropy in assessing machine performance * A timely review of flow structures * Revisiting the subsonic and supersonic De Laval nozzle as it applies to bladed turbomachinery components * An applied review of boundary layer principles * And highlighting the importance of invariant properties across a turbomachinery component in carrying out real computational tasks. The text is fully supported by over two hundred figures, numerous examples and homework problems.
This volume explores the scientific problems in the design, development and operation of axial and radial turbomachinery.
"Turbo Donkeycart"An oxymoron if ever there was one, but a perfectly logical one for those born and raised, as Michael A. D. Edwards puts it " in the Between Lands."For this his first published collection, Edwards examines the paradox that is modern Jamaica and juxtaposes it alongside an omnibus view of world affair and a storehouse of personal memories and aspirations.By turns acerbic, cynical, hopeful, weary, genial and even lusty, Turbo Donkeycart is a fulsome journey - at warp speed into the aligned heart-mind of one of Jamaica's foremost literary sons.
