The benchmark guide for compressor technology pros
You don't have to scour piles of technical literature for compressor answers any longer. The Compressor Handbook compiled by Paul Hanlon packs all the answers on design procedures, practical application, and maintenance of compressors—straight from top experts on these widely used machines.
Chapter 5 (Part 2) - Mass and energy analysis of control volumes. The objectives of this chapter are to: Solve energy balance problems for common steady-flow devices such as nozzles, compressors, turbines, throttling valves, mixers, heaters, and heat exchangers; apply the energy balance to general unsteady-flow processes with particular emphasis on the uniform-flow process as the model for commonly encountered charging and discharging processes.
Basic principles and objectives of supercharging
Since the radial compressor will be discussed in detail in Chap. 5 in connection with exhaust gas turbocharging and as part of the exhaust gas turbocharger, at this point its function will only be addressed as the basis for its map characteristics. All ﬂow compressors are based on the physical principle of the transformation of kinetic energy, which is supplied to the medium in the impeller, into a pressure rise via ﬂow deceleration, partially in the impeller, partially in a diffuser.
Chapter 4 - Energy analysis of closed systems. The objectives of Chapter 4 are to: Examine the moving boundary work or P dV work commonly encountered in reciprocating devices such as automotive engines and compressors, identify the first law of thermodynamics as simply a statement of the conservation of energy principle for closed (fixed mass) systems, develop the general energy balance applied to closed systems,...
