The book focuses on rigorous mathematical derivation of the equations governing flow and detailed descriptions of the numerical methods used to solve the equations. Numerous applications of the methods to different types of turbomachine are given and, in many cases, the numerical results are compared to experimental measurements. These comparisons illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of the methods a useful guide for readers. Lessons for the design of improved blading are also indicated after many applications. * Presents real-world perspective to the past, present and future concern in turbomachinery * Covers direct and inverse solutions with theoretical and practical aspects * Demonstrates huge application background in China * Supplementary instructional materials are available on the companion website
