This festschrift in honor of Professor Budugur Lakshminarayana's 60th birthday-based on the proceedings of a symposium on Turbomachinery Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer held recently at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park-provides authoritative and conclusive research results as well as new insights into complex flow features found in the turbomachinery used for propulsion, power, and industrial applications.

Explaining in detail compressors, heat transfer fields in turbines, computational fluid dynamics, and unsteady flows, Turbomachinery Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer covers:
  • Mixing mechanisms, annulus wall boundary layers, and the flow field in transonic turbocompressors
  • The numerical implementation of turbulence models in a computer code
  • Secondary flows, film cooling, and thermal turbulence modeling
  • The visualization method of modeling using liquid crystals
  • Innovative techniques in the computational modeling of compressor and turbine flows
  • measurement in unsteady flows as well as axial flows and compressor noise generation
  • And much more

    Generously illustrated and containing key bibliographic citations, Turbomachinery Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer is an indispensable resource for mechanical, design, aerospace, marine, manufacturing, materials, industrial, and reliability engineers; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
