Compressor Performance

Compressor Performance is a reference book and CD-ROM for compressor design engineers and compressor maintenance engineers, as well as engineering students. The book covers the full spectrum of information needed for an individual to select, operate, test and maintain axial or centrifugal compressors. It includes basic aerodynamic theory to provide the user with the "how's" and "why's" of compressor design. Maintenance engineers will especially appreciate the troubleshooting guidelines offered. Includes many example problems and reference data such as gas properties and flow meter calculations to enable easy analysis of compressor performance in practice. Includes companion CD with computer programs. M. Theodore Gresh has been with the Elliot Company in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, since 1975, initially working on the mechanical and aerodynamic design and application of centrifugal compressors. Unrivalled coverage of the theory and practical use of all kinds of compressors in industrial use from an industry-leading company source Complete subject reference and learning resource in one stop, suitable for newly graduated engineers and experienced professional reference use Includes companion CD-ROM

Throughout the last decades, centrifugal compressor research and development have been revolutionized. Computational fluid dynamics have provided a better understanding of the flow and physical phenomena, and the design of new cen trifugal compressor components has been transformed from an "art" into a "sci ence". New materials and manufacturing techniques now create new geometries that could only be dreamed of in the past, and new challenging applications have pushed the limits beyond what was considered the state of the art.

Althoughtheprinciplesofoperationofhelicalscrewmachines,ascompressors or expanders, have been well known for more than 100 years, it is only during the past 30 years that these machines have become widely used. The main reasons for the long period before they were adopted were their relatively poor e?ciency and the high cost of manufacturing their rotors. Two main developments led to a solution to these di?culties. The ?rst of these was the introduction of the asymmetric rotor pro?le in 1973. This reduced the bl-

Compressor performance and turbine performance are presented in the form of performance maps at selected values of Reynolds number index; the effects of Reynolds number on performance are summarized. The effects of variable stator angle and high inlet-air temperatures on compressor performance are also shown. Over-all engine performance (net thrust and specific fuel consumption) is presented for a flight Mach number of 0.9 at rated engine conditions over a range of altitudes to illustrate performance losses resulting from decreased Reynolds number
