Gas Turbine Engineering


Gas Turbine Engineering Handbook discusses the design, fabrication, installation,

operation, and maintenance of gas turbines. The third edition is not only an

updating of the technology in gas turbines, which has seen a great leap forward

in the 2000s, but also a rewriting of various sections to better answer today’s

problems in the design, fabrication, installation, operation, and maintenance of

gas turbines. The third edition has added a new chapter that examines the case

histories of gas turbines from deterioration of the performance of gas turbines to

failures encountered in all the major components of the gas turbine. The chapter

on Maintenance Techniques has been completely rewritten and updated. The

revised chapter deals with Long Term Service Agreements (LTSAs), and special

maintenance tables have been added so that you can troubleshoot problems on

gas turbines that you may encounter.

The new advanced gas turbines have firing temperatures of 2600 ◦F (1427 ◦C),

and pressure ratios exceeding 40:1 in aircraft gas turbines, and over 30:1 in

industrial turbines. This has led to the rewriting of Chapter 7, to fully understand

the operating mechanics of these high pressure ratio axial-flow compressors.

The chapter covers in detail the advent of surge, and describes in great detail the

different mechanisms of surge, rotating stall, and choke flow conditions in the

compressor of the gas turbine. Advances in materials and coatings have spurred

this technology, and the new edition has treated this new area in great detail. The

emphasis on low NOx emissions from gas turbines has led to the development of

a new breed of Dry Low NOx combustors, and their problems are dealt with in

depth in this new edition. The third edition deals with an upgrade in the design

and maintenance of advanced gas turbines and deals with most of the applicable

codes both in the area of performance and mechanical standards.

The new edition has been written with the experienced engineer in mind who

is working in power plants, and in petrochemical and offshore installations. This

edition should help him or her understand more clearly problems encountered in

the field, and how to prevent them.

The book also provides the basic fluid mechanics and thermodynamics for the

young engineering graduate or undergraduate student who is being exposed to

the turbomachinery field for the first time. The book is very useful as a textbook

for undergraduate or graduate turbomachinery courses as well as for in-house
