In Gas Turbines, Ganesan reviews the basic principles of turbine engines and then proceeds to discuss the fundamental aspects of rotating machines. Through a steady and logical progression of topics, students will get a grasp of the theoretical concepts of this complex subject. Some topics that are covered in this text are centrifugal and axial flow compressors, inlets and nozzles, practical cycles and their analysis, cycle arrangements, ideal cycles and combustion systems, and blades.
Ganesan has also included a sound practical aspect to this text. Students can expect to find a series of 165 objective questions, 75 solved examples, 220 review questions as well as 86 exercises.
This is the third edition of the book, and the the author has added new chapters on subject areas such as transonic and supersonic compressors, and rocket propulsion. Ganesan also addresses the applications and environmental considerations related to gas turbines.
Gas Turbines by Ganesan was published in the year 2010 by Tata McGraw-Hill Education.
