Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The most complete coverage of the aerodynamics of turbomachinery available. Contains a thorough step-by-step presentation of the computational models involved, enabling readers to easily construct a flow chart from which to operate. The author critically reviews all of the existing numerical models highlighting the pros and cons of each.

From the Back Cover

Over the past three decades, information in the aerospace and mechanical engineering fields in general and turbomachinery in particular has grown at an exponential rate. Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer of Turbomachinery is the first book, in one complete volume, to bring together the modern approaches and advances in the field, providing the most up-to-date, unified treatment available on basic principles, physical aspects of the aerothermal field, analysis, performance, theory, and computation of turbomachinery flow and heat transfer.

Presenting a unified approach to turbomachinery fluid dynamics and aerothermodynamics, the book concentrates on the fluid dynamic aspects of flows and thermodynamic considerations rather than on those related to materials, structure, or mechanical aspects. It covers the latest material and all types of turbomachinery used in modern-day aircraft, automotive, marine, spacecraft, power, and industrial applications; and there is an entire chapter devoted to modern approaches on computation of turbomachinery flow. An additional chapter on turbine cooling and heat transfer is unique for a turbomachinery book.

The author has undertaken a systematic approach, through more than three hundred illustrations, in developing the knowledge base. He uses analysis and data correlation in his discussion of most recent developments in this area, drawn from over nine hundred references and from research projects carried out by various organizations in the United States and abroad.

This book is extremely useful for anyone involved in the analysis, design, and testing of turbomachinery. For students, it can be used as a two-semester course of senior undergraduate or graduate study: the first semester dealing with the basic principles and analysis of turbomachinery, the second exploring three-dimensional viscid flows, computation, and heat transfer. Many sections are quite general and applicable to other areas in fluid dynamics and heat transfer. The book can also be used as a self-study guide to those who want to acquire this knowledge.

The ordered, meticulous, and unified approach of Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer of Turbomachinery should make the specialization of turbomachinery in aerospace and mechanical engineering much more accessible to students and professionals alike, in universities, industry, and government.

Turbomachinery theory, performance, and analysis made accessible with a new, unified approach

For the first time in nearly three decades, here is a completely up-to-date and unified approach to turbomachinery fluid dynamics and aerothermodynamics. Combining the latest advances, methods, and approaches in the field, Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer of Turbomachinery features:

  • The most comprehensive and complete coverage of the fluid dynamics and aerothermodynamics of turbomachinery to date
  • A spotlight on the fluid dynamic aspects of flows and the thermodynamic considerations for turbomachinery (rather than the structural or material aspects)
  • A detailed, step-by-step presentation of the analytical and computational models involved, which allows the reader to easily construct a flowchart from which to operate
  • Critical reviews of all the existing analytical and numerical models, highlighting the advantages and drawbacks of each
  • Comprehensive coverage of turbine cooling and heat transfer, a unique feature for a book on turbomachinery
  • An appendix of basic computation techniques, numerous tables, and listings of common terminology, abbreviations, and nomenclature

Broad in scope, yet concise, and drawing on the author's teaching experience and research projects for government and industry, Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer of Turbomachinery explains and simplifies an increasingly complex field. It is an invaluable resource for undergraduate and graduate students in aerospace and mechanical engineering specializing in turbomachinery, for research and design engineers, and for all professionals who are—or wish to be—at the cutting edge of this technology.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent addition to add depth and modern discussion to simpler, classic works such as Dixon. Its not cheap, but very thorough in key areas other books omit, or in areas presented in less detailed form elsewhere (for example dimensionless groups). Bud is no longer with us, but I expect this to be a lasting memorial for him... and also expect once out of print people will be out looking for this text as they do with Balje today. If you work in this field you need to own this book.
