Pumps, fans, compressors and turbines are essential components in all engineering complexes. This book explains the basic fluid mechanics and thermodynamics underlying their design in a clear and uncomplicated way, with many examples and worked exercises.
By treating the machines as either centrifugal, centripetal or axial flow devices, the author is able to make their basic principles and their similarities and differences readily comprehensible to the student. The book deals thoroughly with problems such as cavitation, refers to computer-based exercises wherever possible and provides up to date information on the rapid advanced currently being made in analysis and performance control.
