About the Authors
  • This long-awaited, physics-first and design-oriented text describes and explains the underlying flow and heat transfer theory of secondary air systems. An applications-oriented focus throughout the book provides the reader with robust solution techniques, state-of-the-art three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methodologies, and examples of compressible flow network modeling. It clearly explains elusive concepts of windage, non-isentropic generalized vortex, Ekman boundary layer, rotor disk pumping, and centrifugally-driven buoyant convection associated with gas turbine secondary flow systems featuring rotation. The book employs physics-based, design-oriented methodology to compute windage and swirl distributions in a complex rotor cavity formed by surfaces with arbitrary rotation, counter-rotation, and no rotation. This text will be a valuable tool for aircraft engine and industrial gas turbine design engineers as well as graduate students enrolled in advanced special topics courses.

    • Provides a common physics-based language of communication between academic researchers and practicing design engineers
    • Allows readers to develop a wholesome understanding of modern gas turbine designs and of emerging concepts of the 'Internet of Things (IoT)' and 'Digital Twins'
    • Features a unique blend of 1-D modeling methods with 3-D computational fluid dynamics (CFD), providing readers with a better understanding of their computer-generated results
