ISBN: 0884157326|Author: Meherwan P. Boyce, Ph.D., P.E.|Pages: 640|Edition: Second Edition|Format: PDF|Size: 9 MB
Covers every aspect of gas turbine design and operation
Presents necessary data and helpful suggestions to assist engineers to obtain optimum performance for any gas turbine, under all conditions
Serves as a desk reference both for students and professionals
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.
The author has assimilated the subject matter (including diverse views) into a comprehensive, unified treatment of gas turbines. It discusses the design, fabrication, installation, operation, and maintenance of gas turbines.
Gas Turbine Engineering Handbook serves 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.
