Turbines, Compressors and Fans, Fourth Edition

by: S.M. Yahya, Ph.D.


Abstract: This book is a comprehensive resource on the theoretical principles, design and performance parameters, modes of operation and major functional areas of turbomachinery. Here are a few things that are new to this edition: - Set-up of turbomachinery laboratory - List of materials used in turbomachinery - Presentation of specifications of additional types of large wind turbines - Addition of recent publications to bibliography The book would prove immensely useful for practising engineers in the areas of power generation, aerospace, IC engines as well as industrial fans, blowers and compressors. Researchers as well as advanced level mechanical and aerospace engineering students, specialising in turbomachines, fluid machinery, steam and gas turbines, and aircraft propulsion, would find the book equally helpful.
