Turbine aerodynamics; axial-flow and radial-inflow turbine design and analysis.


Turbine aerodynamics; axial-flow and radial-inflow turbine design and analysis.

Aungier, Ronald H.



394 pages




In Pennsylvania now, and retired from a career in fluid mechanics research and development, Aungier is a consultant in turbomachinery aerodynamics. Here, with the same approach he used in his previous books on compressor aerodynamics, he discusses turbine aerodynamic design and analysis, for aerodynamicists who want to apply modern technology to the task. He begins by reviewing the basics of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. Then he examines such topics as the aerodynamic performance analysis of axial-flow turbines, the preliminary aerodynamic design of radial-inflow turbine stages, and quasi-three-dimensional blade passage flow field analysis.
