9780262526685: The Design of High-Efficiency Turbomachinery and Gas Turbines (MIT Press)

This comprehensive textbook is unique in its design-focused approach to turbomachinery and gas turbines. It offers students and practicing engineers methods for configuring these machines to perform with the highest possible efficiency. Examples and problems are based on the actual design of turbomachinery and turbines. After an introductory chapter that outlines the goals of the book and provides definitions of terms and parts, the book offers a brief review of the basic principles of thermodynamics and efficiency definitions. The rest of the book is devoted to the analysis and design of real turbomachinery configurations and gas turbines, based on a consistent application of thermodynamic theory and a more empirical treatment of fluid dynamics that relies on the extensive use of design charts. Topics include turbine power cycles, diffusion and diffusers, the analysis and design of three-dimensional free-stream flow, and combustion systems and combustion calculations. The second edition updates every chapter, adding material on subjects that include flow correlations, energy transfer in turbomachines, and three-dimensional design. A solutions manual is available for instructors. This new MIT Press edition makes a popular text available again, with corrections and some updates, to a wide audience of students, professors, and professionals.

About the Author:

David Gordon Wilson is Professor of Mechanical Engineering Emeritus at MIT. He is the author of Bicycling Science (MIT Press, third edition). Theodosios Korakianitis is Dean of the Parks College of Engineering, Aviation, and Technology; Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering; and Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Saint Louis University.

Review:

A welcome return. Any book can present equations and algorithms; these authors desire to give us insight. They want to enable us to reason why certain choices are better than others and understand the consequences of our decisions. I have appreciated this book for a long time. It is not harder, but makes us smarter.

(Andrew R. Mech, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology)

You have to be smarter than the wheelbarrow you're operating! The object of the metaphor is to encourage the student to understand what is happening inside the gas turbine. In this text the authors use a design approach not found in other texts. That is why I specified the second edition of this book when I started teaching my gas turbines class. My sincere thanks to the authors and the MIT Press for producing this updated second edition.

(Raymond L. Mathewson, Jr., Associate Professor, United States Merchant Marine Academy; author of Thermodynamic Review Notes for Thermal Power Systems)

Turbomachinery designs of high efficiency are essential for the production of high efficiency gas turbine engines, hence it is appropriate to combine these subjects in one text and this is done in a clear and comprehensive manner. There are a great number of textbooks on these subjects but what makes this text stand out is the ability to make the subject highly accessible with its emphasis on a design approach in thermodynamics, turbomachines, and associated elements such as combustors and heat exchangers. Given the quantity and depth of material presented, the authors are to be greatly commended in making such information accessible that has in the past been difficult to extract from a plethora of specialist research papers.

(K. R. Pullen, Professor and Chair in Energy Systems, Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, City University London)
