Advances in Steam Turbines for Modern Power Plants provides an authoritative review of steam turbine design optimization, analysis and measurement, the development of steam turbine blades, and other critical components, including turbine retrofitting and steam turbines for renewable power plants.
As a very large proportion of the world’s electricity is currently generated in systems driven by steam turbines, (and will most likely remain the case in the future) with steam turbines operating in fossil-fuel, cogeneration, combined cycle, integrated gasification combined cycle, geothermal, solar thermal, and nuclear plants across the world, this book provides a comprehensive assessment of the research and work that has been completed over the past decades.
- Presents an in-depth review on steam turbine design optimization, analysis, and measurement
- Written by a range of experts in the area
- Provides an overview of turbine retrofitting and advanced applications in power generation
R&D managers, steam turbine engineers and researchers working with steam turbine design as well as postgraduate students

Tadashi Tanuma is a Professor at Teikyo University, Japan. He is the head of the Laboratory of Fluid-Structural Simulation and Design in the Strategic Innovation and Research Center. He also works for the Graduate School of Science & Engineering and the Department of Mechanical and Precision System Engineering in Teikyo University. Professor Tadashi Tanuma began his career as a development mechanical engineer in 1980 at Turbine Factory, Toshiba Corporation, Japan. He led the Turbomachinary Development Group from 1993. Subsequently, he joined the Steam Turbine Design Department in Keihin Product Operations of Toshiba Corporation. He developed and designed Toshiba 52-inch last stage long blade for nuclear power steam turbines and steel 40 and 48-inch last stage long blade for thermal power steam turbines as an aerodynamic engineer and led many research and development programs for steam and gas turbine efficiency enhancement technologies. He was the President of the Gas Turbine Society of Japan (2015).
