Axial and Radial Turbines

This is the first completely new book for more than a decade specifically devoted to axial and
radial turbine design and technology. It starts with the fundamental principles of turbine design,
but also includes the latest developments and understanding, including the essential role that
computer-based analysis plays today. The coverage includes the aerodynamic and structural
analysis of turbine blades, together with the important topics of life prediction, design for durability,
blade cooling, and exhaust diffuser design.
