Turbomachinery PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Turbomachinery free pdf The book deals with various compressible flow turbomachines like steam, gas and hydraulic turbines. Common features together with principles involved in design of these turbines are discussed. A section deals with dimensional analysis and its applications to turbomachinery. Energy exchange in turbomachines has been covered with the help of Euler equation. The design principles of the Pelton wheel, Francis turbine and the Kaplan turbine have been presented together with centrifugal and axial flow pumps. The fact that turbomachines can transmit power somewhat like gear trains has been presented in chapter on hydraulic transmissions. The material presented will be a useful text on turbomachines for students of mechanical engineering.

About Vedanth Kadambi

Dr Vedanth Kadambi was on the teaching faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Kanpur when it started and grew into a renowned institution of high stature. He was instrumental in developing laboratories in Heat Transfer, Energy Conversion and Airconditioning and Refrigeration as well as in developing courses related to these areas. He was also appointed as Visiting Professor at Lehigh University at Bethlehem, PA and later joined GE Corporate Research Division at Schenectady, NY. Thereafter, he joined the Recuperator Division at Textron Lycoming, where he was involved in the design of recuperators for the US army's famous Abrams M1A1 tank. He was later Chief Scientist at Honeywell Engines Division and participated in the design of engine cooling flow systems for aircraft engines. After retiring from active service from Honeywell in 2001, he has been consultant to GTRE, Bangalore and was Visiting Professor at IIT Kanpur for a period of one year. Presently, he is at the ME Department of IIT Gandhinagar, Ahmedabad. He has published several research papers in reputed journals on heat transfer as well as in other areas and is the main author in books related primarily to Energy Conversion as well as Airconditioning and Refrigeration. He is presently a life Member of ASME. He is still active in teaching as well as in the revision of books on Energy Conversion and in setting up an Energy Research Centre at IIT-GN. He is a consultant to Institute of Plasma Research at Ahmedabad and is involved in the design of a compressor for high pressure helium circulation. Professor Manohar Prasad of Mechanical Engineering Department of IIT Kanpur has authored three books of Energy Conversion and one book of Refrigeration and Airconditioning. He has guided about two dozen postgraduate students and, published and presented five dozen research papers in the national and international journals and conferences. He is also member of professional bodies including that of the International Institute of Refrigeration (Paris)
