Gas Turbine Theory, 5th edition HIH Saravanamuttoo, GFC Rogers, H Cohen When the First Edition of this book was written fifty years ago, the gas turbine was just becoming established as a powerplant for military aircraft. It took another decade before the gas turbine was introduced to civil aircraft, and this market developed so rapidly that the ocean liner was rendered obsolete. Other markets like naval propulsion, pipeline compression and electrical power applications grew steadily. In recent years the gas turbine, in combination with the steam turbine, has played an ever-increasing role in power generation. Despite the rapid advances in both output and efficiency, the basic theory of the gas turbine has remained unchanged. The layout of this new edition is broadly similar to the original, but greatly expanded and updated, comprising an outline of the basic theory, aerodynamic design of individual components, and the prediction of off-design performance. Descriptions of engine developments and current markets make this book useful to both students and practising engineers. FEATURES: - completely updated to cover current industry requirements and applications - coverage of both aircraft and industrial gas turbines - includes detailed treatment of off-design performance - incorporates in-depth examples throughout - based on the authors' extensive teaching and professional experience Gas Turbine Theory is the classic course text on gas turbines, suitable for both undergraduate and graduate students of mechanical and aeronautical engineering. This new edition will also continue to be a valuable reference for practising gas turbine engineers. THE AUTHORS H.I.H. Saravanamuttoo, Professor Emeritus, Dept of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, has many years experience in the gas turbine industry on both sides of the Atlantic, and is a Past President of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute. G.F.C. Rogers was, until retirement, Professor of Engineering Thermodynamics at the University of Bristol. He is author, with Y.R. Mayhew, of Engineering Thermodynamics Work and Heat Transfer, 4th edition. The late H. Cohen, was formerly University Lecturer and Director of Studies in Engineering at Queen's College, Cambridge.

When the First Edition of this book was written in 1951, the gas turbine was just becoming established as a powerplant for military aircraft. It took another decade before the gas turbine was introduced to civil aircraft, and this market developed so rapidly that the passenger liner was rendered obsolete. Other markets like naval propulsion, pipeline compression and electrical power applications grew steadily. In recent years the gas turbine, in combination with the steam turbine, has played an ever-increasing role in power generation. Despite the rapid advances in both output and efficiency, the basic theory of the gas turbine has remained unchanged.

This book was developed directly from a series of Solar Turbines Incorporated internal short courses that were presented to an audience with a wide range of technical backgrounds, not necessarily related to turbomachinery. Thus, functional principles and physical understanding are emphasized, rather than the derivation of complicated mathematical equations. While the focus of this book is gas turbine theory, it is not intended to provide an in-depth knowledge of gas turbine aerodynamics or thermodynamics, nor is it intended to make the reader an expert in the field of turbomachinery. Readers will benefit from the many topics and theories that pertain to the subject matter.The text emphasizes simplified explanations of complex physical theories. Hopefully, readers will utilize this book to develop an appreciation of the many engineering disciplines that are involved in the design and analysis of gas turbines. Readers are also encouraged to further investigate a wide range of topics by studying more specific, subject-matter literature.
