"This enduring turbomachinery textbook has been around since 1966 and is entering its sixth edition this year. Changes from the previous edition reflect advances in the field. The authors tell us in the preface, for example, that the text puts more emphasis on the effects of compressibility, reflecting "advances in the use of higher flow and blade speeds in turbomachinery." - review in Mechanical Engineering
About the Author
Dr. Dixon has published numerous scientific research papers in turbomachinery and lectured in turbomachinery at the University of Liverpool for nearly 40 years. For 25 of those years he was Chief Examiner in Mechanics for the Council of Engineering Institutions in the UK.
Dr. Hall has been University Lecturer in turbomachinery at the University of Cambridge since 2005. His current research with the university's Silent Aircraft Initiative has led to the development of radical new ideas for aircraft engine design. Prior to teaching, he worked at Rolls-Royce as a turbomachinery aerodynamicist.
