Aerodynamics for the User
Compressor Performance has been a trusted reference book for compressor design and maintenance for over 25 years, and is relied upon by engineers and students worldwide.
This new edition is updated throughout to cover new regulations and technology relevant to compressors, and new content adds coverage of strings of equipment including gas turbines.
It covers the full spectrum of information needed for an individual to select, operate, test and maintain axial or centrifugal compressors. Basic aerodynamic theory provides users with the "how's" and "why's" of compressor design, troubleshooting guidelines help maintenance engineers save time in the field, and many example problems and reference data such as gas properties and flow meter calculations enable easy analysis of compressor performance in practice
- Provides detailed instructions for best practice field performance tests to ASME standards
- Is illustrated throughout with detailed diagrams of compressor equipment
- New case studies of equipment string analysis have been added to this edition
- Includes extensive reference material in appendices such as Mollier diagrams, permissible deviations and fluctuations, and surge identification procedures
