Fluid Machinery: Performance, Analysis, and Design provides a comprehensive introduction to the fluid mechanics of turbomachinery. By focusing on the preliminary design and selection of equipment to meet a set of performance specifications-including size, noise, and cost limitations-the author promotes a basic but thorough understanding of the subject. His pragmatic approach exposes students to a realistic array of conflicting requirements and real-world industrial applications, while providing a solid background for more advanced study. Coveriage of both gas and hydraulic turbines and emphasis on industrial issues and equipment makes this book ideal for mechanical engineering students. Fluid Machinery uses extensive illustration, examples, and exercises to prepare students to confront industrial applications with confidence.
