Gas Turbine Engineering Handbook
Size: 45 MB
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 ~ (1427 ~
and pressure ratios exceeding 40:1 in aircraft gas turbines, and over 30:1 in
