Book: Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Turbomachinery, Fifth Edition
Several modifications have been incorporated into the text in the light of recent
advances in some aspects of the subject. Further information on the interesting phenomenon
of cavitation has been included and a new section on the optimum design of
a pump inlet together with a worked example have been added which take into account
recently published data on cavitation limitations. The chapter on three-dimensional
flows in axial turbomachines has been extended; in particular the section concerning
the constant specific mass flow design of a turbine nozzle has been clarified and now
includes the flow equations for a following rotor row. Some minor alterations on the
definition of blade shapes were needed so I have taken the opportunity of including a
simplified version of the parabolic arc camber line as used for some low camber
Despite careful proof reading a number of errors still managed to elude me in the
second edition. I am most grateful to those readers who have detected errors and communicated
with me about them.
In order to assist the reader I have (at last) added a list of symbols used in the text.
