2.0 out of 5 stars Decent content, awful to work through October 21, 2010
By M D
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This has been one of the most frustrating texts to deal with in my college career. The printers used a very low dpi for the diagrams and plots, so much so that many of the details (subscripts on state points, etc) become almost indistinguishable from one another. The example problems are another significant source of pain, as the vast majority of them use the results from previous examples instead of going through the calculations each time. I have run into problems that literally go through a reference chain 4 problems in length, which is extraordinarily unhelpful. Also, there are many skipped steps in the problems that are worked out, and many of the intermediary calculations do not include units, further making it difficult to follow.

One positive I will say about the book is that it seems that efforts were made to lay out the content in a relatively concise manner, with headings and subsections for all of the main concepts, breaking down the reading into manageable segments.

If the author/publisher can clean up the example problems to the point that they are actually helpful, this can be a good text. Until then, I cannot recommend it to any student hoping to learn the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Book January 26, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Let me start off by saying how fortunate i was to find a hardback copy of this. I was the envy of everyone in Turbines class and to this day it made me feel like "the cool kid". Annnywhoozle, I was really excited to get into this topic seeing that my thermodynamics teacher flew through everything and only explained theory, not the application based part of it. Needless to say, i wasn't a big fan of thermo. Insert this class/book. It is full of theory, application, and examples of turbine engines..a perfect medley. Bathie is fairly straightforward in his writing which makes it not terrible to follow. My old fart of a professor complained because he (Bathie) didn't use the same air tables as Cengel and Boles so he felt the need to write each example on the board with both air values. These numbers differed by maybe 50 thousandths at the most...needless to say he used up every bit of a 3 hour class. The book however is a great reference, i highly recommend it

4.0 out of 5 stars very good book on fundamentals of gas turbines December 18, 1997
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The 84 edition is very good except for the fact that the IS of units is not used. The readers have to deal constantly with the gc's, J, gcJ and the like, making a whole mess for the student to perform certain calculations. I did not read the 95 edition so far but I am sure it will be evem better.
