Gas Turbine Theory, 5th edition HIH Saravanamuttoo, GFC Rogers, H Cohen When the First Edition of this book was written fifty years ago, the gas turbine was just becoming established as a powerplant for military aircraft. It took another decade before the gas turbine was introduced to civil aircraft, and this market developed so rapidly that the ocean liner was rendered obsolete. Other markets like naval propulsion, pipeline compression and electrical power applications grew steadily. In recent years the gas turbine, in combination with the steam turbine, has played an ever-increasing role in power generation. Despite the rapid advances in both output and efficiency, the basic theory of the gas turbine has remained unchanged. The layout of this new edition is broadly similar to the original, but greatly expanded and updated, comprising an outline of the basic theory, aerodynamic design of individual components, and the prediction of off-design performance. Descriptions of engine developments and current markets make this book useful to both students and practising engineers. FEATURES: - completely updated to cover current industry requirements and applications - coverage of both aircraft and industrial gas turbines - includes detailed treatment of off-design performance - incorporates in-depth examples throughout - based on the authors' extensive teaching and professional experience Gas Turbine Theory is the classic course text on gas turbines, suitable for both undergraduate and graduate students of mechanical and aeronautical engineering. This new edition will also continue to be a valuable reference for practising gas turbine engineers. THE AUTHORS H.I.H. Saravanamuttoo, Professor Emeritus, Dept of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, has many years experience in the gas turbine industry on both sides of the Atlantic, and is a Past President of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute. G.F.C. Rogers was, until retirement, Professor of Engineering Thermodynamics at the University of Bristol. He is author, with Y.R. Mayhew, of Engineering Thermodynamics Work and Heat Transfer, 4th edition. The late H. Cohen, was formerly University Lecturer and Director of Studies in Engineering at Queen's College, Cambridge.

This book was developed directly from a series of Solar Turbines Incorporated internal short courses that were presented to an audience with a wide range of technical backgrounds, not necessarily related to turbomachinery. Thus, functional principles and physical understanding are emphasized, rather than the derivation of complicated mathematical equations. While the focus of this book is gas turbine theory, it is not intended to provide an in-depth knowledge of gas turbine aerodynamics or thermodynamics, nor is it intended to make the reader an expert in the field of turbomachinery. Readers will benefit from the many topics and theories that pertain to the subject matter.The text emphasizes simplified explanations of complex physical theories. Hopefully, readers will utilize this book to develop an appreciation of the many engineering disciplines that are involved in the design and analysis of gas turbines. Readers are also encouraged to further investigate a wide range of topics by studying more specific, subject-matter literature.

Gas Turbine Theory

The addition of a chapter devoted to the mechanical design of gas turbines greatly enhances the scope of the book. Descriptions of engine developments and current markets make this book useful to both students and practising engineers.

When the First Edition of this book was written in 1951, the gas turbine was just becoming established as a powerplant for military aircraft. It took another decade before the gas turbine was introduced to civil aircraft, and this market developed so rapidly that the passenger liner was rendered obsolete. Other markets like naval propulsion, pipeline compression and electrical power applications grew steadily. In recent years the gas turbine, in combination with the steam turbine, has played an ever-increasing role in power generation.

Naval Engineering: Principles and Theory of Gas Turbine Engines is a technical publication for professional engineers to assist in understanding the history and development of gas turbine engines including the thermodynamic processes known as the Brayton cycle. Common principles of various gas turbine nomenclatures, technical designs, applications, and performance conditions that affect the capabilities and limitations of marine operations are provided. It enables the ability to describe the principal components of gas turbines and their construction. This book will enable the reader to increase professional knowledge through the understanding of navy engineering principles and theory of gas turbine engines. The reader will learn the operation and maintenance of the gas turbine modules (GTMs), gas turbine generators (GTGs), reduction gears, and associated equipment such as pumps, valves, oil purifiers, heat exchangers, shafts, and shaft bearings. Inside this book, you will find technical information such as electronic control circuitry, interfaces such as signal conditioners, control consoles, and designated electrical equipment associated with shipboard propulsion and electrical powergenerating plants. When every detail of engineering work is performed with integrity and reliability, technical leadership know-how will improve.

The gas turbine is a power plant that produces a great amount of energy for its size and weight and thus has found increasing service in the past 20 years in the petrochemical industry and utilities throughout the world. The gas turbine's compactness, weight, and multiple fuel applications make it a natural power plant for offshore platforms.This second edition is not only an updating of technology, which has seen a great leap forward in the 1990s, but also a rewriting of various sections to better answer concerns about emissions, efficiency, mechanical standards and codes, and new materials and coatings. At a time when energy costs are high, this important handbook expertly guides those seeking optimum use of each unit of energy supplied to a gas turbine.In this book, the author has assimilated the subject matter (including diverse views) into a comprehensive, unified treatment of gas turbines. The author discusses the design, fabrication, installation, operation, and maintenance of gas turbines. The intent of this book is to serve as a reference text after it has accomplished its primary objective of introducing the reader to the broad subject of gas turbines. Thus it is of use to both students of the subject and similarly to professionals as a desk reference in their daily lives.

The second edition of a comprehensive textbook that introduces turbomachinery and gas turbines through design methods and examples. This comprehensive textbook is unique in its design-focused approach to turbomachinery and gas turbines. It offers students and practicing engineers methods for configuring these machines to perform with the highest possible efficiency. Examples and problems are based on the actual design of turbomachinery and turbines. After an introductory chapter that outlines the goals of the book and provides definitions of terms and parts, the book offers a brief review of the basic principles of thermodynamics and efficiency definitions. The rest of the book is devoted to the analysis and design of real turbomachinery configurations and gas turbines, based on a consistent application of thermodynamic theory and a more empirical treatment of fluid dynamics that relies on the extensive use of design charts. Topics include turbine power cycles, diffusion and diffusers, the analysis and design of three-dimensional free-stream flow, and combustion systems and combustion calculations. The second edition updates every chapter, adding material on subjects that include flow correlations, energy transfer in turbomachines, and three-dimensional design. A solutions manual is available for instructors. This new MIT Press edition makes a popular text available again, with corrections and some updates, to a wide audience of students, professors, and professionals.
