Revised and updated, this well established and highly successful book gives a competent account of the fundamental theory of turbomachines. A concise and unified approach to the subject is employed which fills the need for a comprehensive introductory text suitable for most engineering curricula. The theoretical approach, based firmly on the fundamental principles of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, makes the book particularly suitable for undergraduate courses. It has also proved very useful to professional engineers who require a relevant text on the basic physical processes in turbomachines and their theoretical representation. Several modifications have been incorporated in the text in the light of recent advances in the subject. Further information on cavitation has been included and a new section on the optimum design of a pump inlet taking account of cavitation limitations has been added. Certain chapters have been extended: the section on 'Constant specific mass flow' design now includes the flow equations for a following rotor row, and the section on the definition of blade shapes has been extended to include the parabolic arc camber line blade. A list of symbols used in the text has been added. Each chapter contains a selection of useful problems and answers are provided at the end of the book. SI/Metric units are used throughout
