GAS TABLES FOR COMPRESSIBLE FLOW CALCULATIONS
Author: S M Yahya
Publisher: New Age International
Length: 120 pages
Published in the year 2011, Gas Tables: For Compressible Flow Calculations is a book that contains a number of gas tables, which are of great importance for compressible flow calculations.
Summary Of The Book
Gas tables are tools that are utilized for carrying out several computations in the fields of Aerodynamics, Gas Dynamics and Fluid Mechanics. In this book, these highly-important gas tables have been listed for heat transfer, Isothermal flow with friction, Isentropic flow, and shocks. Through the course of this book, the readers are also provided with a list of estimated numbers of power needed for compressors, blowers, and fans.
In total, there are 15 chapters in this book. The chapters include SI, Metric And British Units, Manometer Inclinations Required For The Desired Magnification Of The Deflection, Properties Of Standard Atmosphere, Pumping Power For Fans And Blowers, Prandtl-Meyer Functions With Mach Angles, and Flow Of Perfect Gases And Heat Transfer (Rayleigh Flow).
Some other chapters include Normal Shocks In Perfect Gases, Isentropic Flow Of Perfect Gases, and Isentropic Compression Power. This book also consists of tables for oblique shocks, and isothermal flow, along with the properties of the atmosphere. The gas tables present in this book find use in the fields of Chemical, Aerospace, Gas, and Mechanical Engineering.
Gas Tables: For Compressible Flow Calculationsis presented in a multi colour format, making it easier for students to grasp the subject. The book is helpful for classrooms, laboratories and examinations as well.
