|Gas Turbines are a class of rotary engines that depend upon the combustion and thrust of various types of gas-fuel and air mixtures to develop their work-producing effects. No other currently available publication will offer the professional engineer or technician the wealth of useful guidance on nearly every aspect of gas turbine design, installation, operation, maintenance and repair as will this book. The author has great experience as a technical consultant for companies ranging from GE to Rolls Royce, two of the largest manufactures of turbine engines worldwide. The book will offer professional Engineers hard-to-find manufacturer??'s data and offers access to overviews of theoretical bases in thermodynamics and fluid dynamics. Gas Turbines will make the job of any engineer involved in the design, selection, operation and maintenance more efficient and more successful. |
Gas Turbines are highly valued for their high power to weight ratios and dependable mechanical power. They are employed in a wide array of applications, from jet aircraft to power generation to marine propulsion. Their efficient operation depends greatly on very precise engineering and careful maintenance. This new professional reference will cover all aspects of gas turbine engine design, operation and maintenance, but with particular emphasis on practical, industrial-oriented topics, installation, engine optimization, maintenance and repair. The book will offer the reader insight of how to make the right decisions when planning what type of gas turbine to use.
??? Overview of major components, brief history of theory and development
??? Important maintenance-related chapters
??? Unique offering ofmanufacturer??'s specifications and performance criteria and future trends
??? One-of-a-kind guidance on the economics and business-management of turbine selection, as well as on installation and instrumentation/calibration
From the Publisher:
No other current publication offers the professional engineer or technician the wealth of useful guidance on nearly every aspect of gas turbine design, installation, operation, maintenance and repair as this bookdoes. Gas Turbines makes the job of any engineer involved in the design, selection, operation and maintenance of most nearly any type of gas turbine more efficient and more successful. The book offers the reader a ?big picture? view of how to make the right decisions when planning what type of gas turbine to use for a particular application, taking into consideration not only operational requirements but long-term life-cycle costs in upkeep and repair and future usage.
Concise overviews of all important theoretical bases in thermodynamics and fluid dynamics upon which gas turbine engines depend are presented. The author is an experienced industry consultant, with experience at such leading manufacturers of gas turbines as GE and Rolls Royce and relates how factors affect proper design, correct selection and specifications, and long-term successful operation for the application in question.. The book offers professional engineers hard-to-find manufacturer?s data with extensive interpretation and explanation.
