Air-Cooled Heat Exchangers and Cooling Towers

Air-Cooled Heat Exchangers and Cooling Towers

Author: Detlev G. Kreoger Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/07/2020

This new text represents the most detailed and comprehensive book presenting modern practice and theory relevant to the thermal-flow performance evaluation, design, and optimization of air-cooled heat exchangers and cooling towers. It also provides modern analytical and empirical tools used to evaluate the thermal-flow performance and design of air-cooled heat exchangers and cooling towers. Kroger covers how to prepare improved specifications and evaluate more critical bids with respect to thermal performance of new cooling systems. Further, Kroger explores improvement possibilities with respect to retrofits of existing cooling units as well as possible impacts of plant operations and environmental influences. Optimize plant efficiency through an understanding of key reasons for poor performance. Get extensive up-to-date information on air-cooled heat exchangers and cooling towers. Reduce misunderstanding between supplier and client through increased insight and intelligent specifications understanding.

Turbine Design

Turbine Design

Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 08/07/2020

A reference on both aircraft and industrial turbines, Turbine Design: The Effect on Axial Flow Turbine Performance of Parameter Variation details specific methods for optimization and design. A rotary machinery consultant and design engineer, the author examines how to investigate and fix the initial scantling selections, for input, to analysis, of CFD computer programs. He presents a method of selecting the best compromise turbine design, taking into account a range of parameters, including size, stress and number of stages. Used to design many turbines, FieldingAs method enables a designer to select the best compromise to ensure performance acceptability. The method uses correlations to investigate both the direct and the indirect problems. Contents Include: Basic Turbine Design Selection of Parameters Blade Efficiency and Shaft Efficiency Work Parameter and Flow Coefficient Degree of Reaction Minimum Hub/Tip Ration Minimum Exit Mach Number and Reynolds Number General Parameters Effect of Stress on Turbine Efficiency State Calculations Introduction Profile loss and Optimum Space/Chord Ratio Secondary and Leakage Loss Coefficients Three Dimensional Considerations State Thermodynamic Calculations Thermodynamics and Blade Shapes Relating Thermodynamic Calculations to Physical Blade Efflux Angle Prediction from a Blade Row Design Example Design and Test of a Single Stage Turbine Selection of Parameters Detailed Thermodynamic Design Comparison of Design Prediction and Test Results Index & References.
