A comprehensive introduction to turbomachines and their applications With up–to–date coverage of all types of turbomachinery for students and practitioners, Fundamentals of Turbomachinery covers machines from gas, steam, wind, and hydraulic turbines to simple pumps, fans, blowers, and compressors used throughout industry. After reviewing the history of turbomachinery and the fluid mechanical principles involved in their design and operation, the book focuses on the application and selection of machines for various uses, teaching basic theory as well as how to select the right machine for a specific use. With a practical emphasis on engineering applications of turbomachines, this book discusses the full range of both turbines and pumping devices. For each type, the author explains: ∗ Basic principles ∗ Preliminary design procedure ∗ Ideal performance characteristics ∗ Actual performance curves published by the manufacturers ∗ Application and appropriate selection of the machine Throughout, worked sample problems illustrate the principles discussed and end–of–chapter problems, employing both SI and the English system of units, provide practice to help solidify the reader′s grasp of the material.

This introductory 2005 text on air-breathing jet propulsion focuses on the basic operating principles of jet engines and gas turbines. Previous coursework in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics is elucidated and applied to help the student understand and predict the characteristics of engine components and various types of engines and power gas turbines. Numerous examples help the reader appreciate the methods and differing, representative physical parameters. A capstone chapter integrates the text material into a portion of the book devoted to system matching and analysis so that engine performance can be predicted for both on- and off-design conditions. The book is designed for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students in aerospace and mechanical engineering. A basic understanding of fluid dynamics and thermodynamics is presumed. Although aircraft propulsion is the focus, the material can also be used to study ground- and marine-based gas turbines and turbomachinery and some advanced topics in compressors and turbines.

Introduction to Bond Graphs and Their Applications is an introductory text on bond graphs and their applications in the field of engineering. The applications of bond graphs in mechanical engineering and design, fluid mechanics, electronic data processing, and thermal and thermodynamic systems are discussed. This book is comprised of eight chapters and begins by comparing the different kinds of graphs, diagrams, and models before turning to the fundamentals of bond graphs. The next chapter introduces the reader to the systematic application of bond graphs in mechanical engineering and design; fluid power engineering (sometimes called oil hydraulics); electrotechnique and electronics; and thermodynamics. The use of bond graphs in automatic computer programming with the ENPORT program is also described. The final chapter is devoted to inertia and resistance fields; linear two-ports in different causalities; thermodynamics of flow processes; electromechanical components; systems with distributed parameters; and force and velocity as effort or flow. This monograph is intended primarily for all engineers interested in representing simple or complex engineering systems and should also be of value to students in the different engineering disciplines, mechanics, fluid mechanics, and electronics with electromechanical power conversion or thermodynamics.

Mechanics Today, Volume 5 contains some of the papers presented at a symposium to honor Eric Reissner, held at the University of California in San Diego, on June 23, 1978, under the sponsorship of the Office of Naval Research. The symposium provided a forum for discussing various topics related to mechanics, from the pseudo-elasticity of living tissues and compression of spherical cells to kinematically unstable space frameworks. Reissner's equations for sandwich plates are also considered. Comprised of 36 chapters, this volume begins with an analysis of the state of stress near the boundary of a thick plate by means of "end solutions" obtained from Reissner's sheaf deformation plate theory. A deformable primary reflecting surface composed of an array of relatively small diameter circular elements is then described. The discussion then turns to the "Taylor instability" of the surface of an elastic-plastic plate; free vibration spectrum structure of a shell of revolution; and the momentum-balance method in earthquake engineering. Subsequent chapters focus on the intrinsic equations of shell theory with some applications; stress analysis in plasticity; density-wave theory of the spiral structure of galaxies; and a mixture theory for wave propagation in anisotropic angle-ply laminates. This book will be of interest to engineers and physicists.

The Finite Element Method In Engineering

The Finite Element Method in Engineering introduces the various aspects of finite element method as applied to engineering problems in a systematic manner. It details the development of each of the techniques and ideas from basic principles. New concepts are illustrated with simple examples wherever possible. Several Fortran computer programs are given with example applications to serve the following purposes: to enable the reader to understand the computer implementation of the theory developed; to solve specific problems; and to indicate procedure for the development of computer programs for solving any other problem in the same area. The book begins with an overview of the finite element method. This is followed by separate chapters on numerical solution of various types of finite element equations; the general procedure of finite element analysis; the development higher order and isoparametric elements; and the application of finite element method for static and dynamic solid and structural mechanics problems like frames, plates, and solid bodies. Subsequent chapters deal with the solution of one-, two-, and three-dimensional steady state and transient heat transfer problems; the finite element solution of fluid mechanics problems; and additional applications and generalization of the finite element method.
