About the Authors
  • Many important advances have occurred in the use of steam power in the past fifteen years. Large power plants as well as small-capacity boilers have become more efficient and reliable, and their design and operation have been enhanced by the application of modern computational techniques. This book provides a timely review of the latest developments in steam power engineering. It discusses thermohydraulic principles and processes, with an emphasis on practical problems of steam power plant design and operation. Among topics covered are historical analysis, cycle design, thermal and hydraulic design of heating surfaces, pollutant control, and flow instability, from which are deduced strategies for further development. Every chapter reflects the author's considerable experience in teaching, research, and consulting. Intended for both students and engineers, the book treats realistic problems and offers a wealth of valuable insight into the design of large and small steam power plants.

    • Provides the latest information on theoretical and practical aspects of steam power
    • Emphasis on design, especially computer-aided design (CAD)
    • Authors have both academic and industrial experience
