The present publication has already been deservedly considered to be one of the world leading books on turbomachinery, owing to its comprehensive and well-balanced coverage of theory as well as of the practical applications. The content of the volume starts with the explanation of the basic background technical principles in thermodynamics and fluid dynamics; then, the authors of the volume included a discussion of the compressors and axial-flow turbines, plus other associated equipment, such as the radial-flow gas and hydraulic turbines, centrifugal pumps and wind turbines. Note that this is a new edition of the publication, providing even wider coverage of the contemporary approached to the design and analysis, including the FEA/CFD techniques. This book will be very practical when used as the core text material by the students at all levels. It shall also be noted that the authors have addressed virtually all modern computational and numerical tools. There are numerous exercises and worked examples included in the book to supplement the text, which in turn is easy-to-follow, making it so popular. All of the technical concepts have been explained very clearly. Have a look in this one and you will definitely find lots of useful information inside.
