Worked Examples in Turbomachinery (Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics) is a publication designed to supplement the materials in Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics of Turbomachinery, Second Edition. The title provides detailed solution for the unanswered problems from the main textbook. The text first covers dimensional analysis, and then proceeds to tackling thermodynamics. Next, the selection discusses two-dimensional cascades. The text also talks about axial flow turbines and compressors, along with the three-dimensional flow in axial turbo machines. Chapter 7 covers centrifugal compressor and pumps, while Chapter 8 tackles radial flow turbines. The book will be of great use to students of mechanical engineering, particularly those who have access to the main textbook.
