This book begins with a review of basic thermodynamics and fluid mechanics principles to motive their application to aerothermodynamics and real-life design issues. The approach is ideal for the reader who will face practical situations and design decisions in the gas turbine industry. Among its features are an emphasis on the role of entropy in assessing machine performance, a timely review of flow structures, revisiting the subsonic and supersonic De Laval nozzle as it applies to bladed turbomachinery components, and an applied review of boundary layer principles. The book highlights the importance of invariant properties across a turbomachinery component in carrying out real computational tasks.

Book Description:

This book is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical and aerospace engineering taking a course commonly called Principles of Turbomachinery or Aerospace Propulsion. The book begins with a review of basic thermodynamics and fluid mechanics principles to motive their application to aerothermodynamics and real-life design issues. This approach is ideal for the reader who will face practical situations and design decisions in the gas turbine industry. The text is fully supported by over 200 figures, numerous examples, and homework problems.

About the Author:

Erian Baskharone is a Professor Emeritus of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Texas A & M University and a member of the Rotordynamics/Turbomachinery Laboratory Faculty. Professor Baskharone has taught the turbomachinery course for the past 15 years. Baskharone recieved his PhD from the University of Cincinnati and worked in the design department of what has become GE Engines before entering the academic world.
