Turbomachines are those in which energy is transferred to or from a continuously moving fluid by the motion of a rotating element. Some of the most common and important machines used in engineering and industry fall into this category, including those which absorb power (and thereby increase fluid pressure), such as fans, compressors and pumps. Also included are equally vital varieties of machines which generate power from the expansion of fluids to lower pressures such as hydraulic, steam and gas turbines. This general definition 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. Example questions and answers throughout Includes more new material on axial flow compressors and pumps

Release Date: 2013-07-02
Genre: Science

Die amerikanische Ausgabe dieses Buches erschien 1947 in der dritten, nicht unwesentlich erweiterten Auflage. Der Verfasser erwähnt in seinem Vorwort, daß es ursprünglich aus dem Text von Vorlesungen an der Design School der W estinghouse Company entstand und zu nächst für den Unterrichtsgebrauch an der Harvard Engineering School herausgegeben wurde. In die Neuauflage wurden neue Veröffentlichungen und eigene Erfahrungen eingearbeitet. Im Vorwort der deutschen Erstauflage (1936) wurde darauf hin gewiesen, daß das vorliegende Buch eine glückliche, dem ingenieur mäßigen Denken entsprechende Anschaulichkeit hat. Der Verfasser ver meidet es, lediglich Gebrauchsanweisungen für Rechenvorschriften zu geben; andererseits verzichtet er auf die Ausarbeitung der vollstän digen, strengen Theorie. Er versteht es, dem Leser die wesentlichen Zusammenhänge auch verwickelter Erscheinungen plausibel zu machen. So vermittelt die Darstellung nicht einen höheren theoreti schen Überblick, sondern leitet den Leser mit einfacher mathematischer oder anschaulicher mechanischer Begründung auf einen Weg, der in praktischen Schwingungsfragen zur zahlenmäßigen Lösung, mindestens aber zu einer guten Annäherung der "exakten" Lösung führt. Eine Fülle von Beispielen und Aufgaben regt dazu an, die Beherrschung der dargelegten Rechenverfahren zu erproben und zu vertiefen. Aus diesen Gründen erfolgte die Übersetzung in die deutsche Sprache. Inzwischen ist die amerikanische Ausgabe mit großem Erfolg im Hochschulunterricht eingesetzt worden. Den deutschen Leser inter essiert vielleicht der Hinweis, daß der Hochschulunterricht in Amerika von der europäischen Art sehr verschieden ist. Die Vorlesungen werden nach einem bestimmten "Textbuch" gelesen.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

During the last decade, rapid advances have been made in the area of flow analysis in the components of gas turbine engines. Improving the design methods of turbomachine blade rows and under standing of the flow phenomena through them, has become one of the major research topics for aE'rodynamists. This increase of research efforts is due to the need of reducing the weight and fuel consumption of turbojet engines for the same thrust levels. One way of achieving this is to design more efficient components working at high local velocities. Design efforts can lead to desired results only if the details of flow through the blade rows are understood. It is also known that for aircraft propulsion systems development, time and cost can be reduced significantly if the perf ormance can be predicted with conf idence and enough precision. This· generally iK:eds sophisticated two or three dimensional computer codes that can give enough information for design and performance prediction. In the recent years, designers also started to use these sophisticated codes more and more with confidence, in connection with computer aided design and manufacturing techniques. On the other hand, the modelling and solution of flow and the meast

Release Date: 2011-09-23
Genre: Science

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is now an essential and effective tool used in the design of all types of turbomachine, and this topic constitutes the main theme of this book. With over 50 years of experience in the field of aerodynamics, Professor Naixing Chen has developed a wide range of numerical methods covering almost the entire spectrum of turbomachinery applications. Moreover, he has also made significant contributions to practical experiments and real-life designs. The book focuses on rigorous mathematical derivation of the equations governing flow and detailed descriptions of the numerical methods used to solve the equations. Numerous applications of the methods to different types of turbomachine are given and, in many cases, the numerical results are compared to experimental measurements. These comparisons illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of the methods – a useful guide for readers. Lessons for the design of improved blading are also indicated after many applications. Presents real-world perspective to the past, present and future concern in turbomachinery Covers direct and inverse solutions with theoretical and practical aspects Demonstrates huge application background in China Supplementary instructional materials are available on the companion website Aerothermodynamics of Turbomachinery: Analysis and Design is ideal for senior undergraduates and graduates studying in the fields of mechanics, energy and power, and aerospace engineering; design engineers in the business of manufacturing compressors, steam and gas turbines; and research engineers and scientists working in the areas of fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, and heat transfer.
