/ Techy Turbine question
I'm looking for some some decent info on turbine design that goes past the standard undergraduate text. I'm looking more for a design guide for an axial flow turbine with incompressible fluid. The undergraduate books I've seen always start with specifying turbine speed and blade angles from which you can work out power output etc. I want something that works the other way round.
if you are in sheffield i can lend you a copy of Gas turbine theory
I know nothing about turbines, but could you not just rearrange those equations?
Unfortunately not, from the theory that's presented there's always something missing.
Andic - thanks but I don't live remotely near Sheffield.
In reply to Eric9Points:
> Unfortunately not, from the theory that's presented there's always something missing.
Knowing nothing about the actual equations everything I just said could be wrong.
It seems to be a bit like that, yes.
I guess what I'd really like to see is a worked example to figure out an efficient way of going through the design process.
Since everyone else is putting their 2 penneth worth in and muddying the waters...
could you make an estimate or specify power then plot the design equations as a parametric with angle and speed varying to accomodate each other

trouble you get posting on a forum....
oh, and last time I checked, gas was compressible
Yes but not all fluids are gases. I'm not sure I get your point.
Anyway, thanks to everyone for the help.
Adam, I'll maybe email your mate.

You asked for incompressible liquids, andic berated the rest of us for muddying the waters whilst offering you a book on Gas Turbines
Good luck with your search..
