Since the initial development and implementation of the modern gas turbine engine during the 1930s, tremendous progress has been made in advancing the technology for aircraft and marine propulsion, electric-power generation, and mechanical drives for industrial applications. Even with seventy years of development, there remain numerous opportunities for advances in efficiency, performance, service life, environmental friendliness, and affordability. A high-technology engineered system, the gas turbine can still benefit from advances in many fields to enable both breakthroughs and the removal of design constraints. Turbine Aerodynamics, Heat Transfer, Materials, and Mechanics, provides an introduction to turbines in the context of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, materials, and mechanics. Divided into four parts, it addresses Major considerations in the design of turbines, from aerodynamics to turbine cooling, seals, and clearance control for efficiency and performance Details of turbine cooling, including uncertainty issues that must be addressed in experimental and computational studies Super alloys, thermal barrier coatings, and mechanisms by which materials can fail due to thermal and mechanical loads, as well as the nondestructive evaluation of the turbine component Challenges that arise from burning alternative fuels and operating in dusty environments
