Editorial Reviews

Book Description

A new edition of a well-established, popular engineering-based textbook on the fluid and thermal principles underlying successful, efficient Turbomachinery --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

Turbomachinery embraces a number of devices that are classified as 'open', such as propellers, windmills and unshrouded fans. The machines examined here are those defined as 'closed', where a finite quantity of fluid can be considered to pass through the machine in unit time, for it is these which are of the most interest to students and professionals in the fields of mechanical, chemical, and plant engineering. It is in these areas that the devices that form the subject matter of this book find their most important applications, making this treatment of vital importance to anyone working in or studying them.

Format: Paperback
The topics covered in this book are very good. It is a good reference book for mechanical engineering students doing an intermediate course in turbomachinery. However, due to the numerous typing errors, the 3rd edition is actually a better book. It makes it very challenging to follow, especially for students. Also, the theory is sometimes rather cryptic and one can do with a bit more detail in places. The velocity triangles can definitely do with more detail. The section on nozzles and diffusers is good, albeit a bit short.

This was the worst book on rotating machinery that I ever picked up. Hard to follow and poorly organized, perhaps designed for the intended course work, I would not recommend that it as any reference value.

His flat theory also neglects changes in units. Which he uses outside of his own definitions in the prologue.

We were asked to buy this book by a teacher, it was certainly a good choice, perhaps the information given is too dense but I did enjoy studying with it.
