From the Publisher

This modern overview to performance analysis places aero- and fluid-dynamic treatments, such as cascade and meridional flow analyses, within the broader context of turbomachine performance analysis. For the first time ducted propellers are treated formally within the general family of turbomachines. It also presents a new approach to the use of dimensional analysis which links the overall requirements, such as flow and head, through velocity triangles to blade element loading and related fluid dynamics within a unifying framework linking all aspects of performance analysis for a wide range of turbomachine types. Computer methods are introduced in the main text and a key chapter on axial turbine performance analysis is complemented by the inclusion of 3 major computer programs on an accompanying disc. These enable the user to generate and modify design data through a graphic interface to assess visually the impact on predicted performance and are designed as a Computer Aided Learning Suite for student project work at the professional designer level.

Based on the author's many years of teaching at degree level and extensive research experience, this book is a must for all students and professional engineers involved with turbomachinery.

Watch a Squishy Robot Oh-so-Gently Catch a Fish

Hyunwoo Yuk/MIT Soft Active Materials Lab CC BY-NC-ND 3.0 Transparent, Gel-based Robot This transparent robot can catch fish. Very, very confused fish. The totally translucent robot caught its prey entirely unawares. Soft, flexible arms wrapped around the fish, enfolding it in a squishy, mechanical embrace—until the robot relaxed, unfurled its arms, and let the startled prey swim away. The multi-limbed machine is a soft robot, and while it may just be annoying fish in a lab today, it offers a promise of medical innovations for humans in the future. Hydrogels are the key to this robot's fishing

MIMIC MOTHER NATURE If you’re not incorporating the most brilliant ideas from the natural world into what you sell, you’re leaving money on the table. Biomimicry is now going mainstream. Forward-looking companies are releasing ingenious products that mirror innovations found in nature, as entrepreneur Jay Harman, author of The Shark’s Paintbrush, points out. They range from sunscreen that replicates hippos’ protective sweat (sans the odor) to hospital wall coatings that emulate sharkskin’s antimicrobial properties. Nature has already solved many problems for us; why not take advantage of that

Entrepreneur's 100 Brilliant Companies

Each year we pick the ideas, companies, applications and inventions that have amazed us with their unique solutions to common problems or marketplace voids, executed in forms both ultra-high-tech and strikingly simple. We divide these innovators into the 10 categories that we believe best tap into the zeitgeist, and this year there's a lot that's new. While we often highlight developments in the design, manufacturing and sale of clothing, we decided to expand our fashion coverage to include the ever-growing world of wearable gadgets, motivated by the rise of the Quantified Self movement.
