fluid mechanics and thermodynamics of turbomachinery 5 ed solution
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Community Reviews. Showing Pergamon Press, Oxford. TWO companion books under review form a useful set of intermediate level works on the field of Turbomachinery. The topics covered include: dimensional analysis; basic thermodynamics, fluid mechanics; two-dimensional cascades; axial-flow turbines; axtal-flow compressors, pumps and fans; three-dimensional flows in axial turbomachines; centrifugal pumps, fans and compressors; radial flow turbines.
The governing partial differential equations of the flows treated are nowhere stated m full, nor used. The book should therefore be accessible to any student acquainted with thermodynamics and the rudiments of fluid mechanics. The discussion IS supported throughout by appropriate references to experimental work.
Within the limits the author has set himself, the qualitative discussions of the various types of flow phenomena encountered in turbomachinery are clearly and effectively presented. The text includes a very useful collection of problems. The latter have been solved in the volume on Worked Examples, available separately.
Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Turbomachinery - S Larry Dixon - Bok () | Bokus
The author and the editor of the series of books to which the present ones belong must be congratulated for their efforts. Unfortunately, the text is not without its defects. It seems to the present reviewer at any rate that the dtsinclinatton of the author to treat at least some of the flows considered in detail has led to a rather superficial work.
This is all the more surprtsing seeing that the present day graduate and many undergraduates student in engineering has sufficient knowledge of the necessary mathematics of partial differential equations. It is debatable whether the material provided in the text would help a serious student to understand the various flow situations discussed as opposed to mechanically calculating a bewildering variety of machine efficiencies.

It might have helped to cover fewer topics at greater depth. The process of understanding could have been aided by a Nomenclature List or a review list of important definitions. Tables collecting together important equations used repeatedly in the text would also have been helpful.
Although this is a second edition of the text, a number of errors exist. For example, on p. Dixon has published numerous scientific research papers in turbomachinery and lectured in turbomachinery at the University of Liverpool for nearly 40 years. Hall has been University Lecturer in turbomachinery at the University of Cambridge since Prior to teaching, he worked at Rolls-Royce as a turbomachinery aerodynamicist.
