Gas Tables for Compressible Flow Calculations is targeted at those in the fields of Chemical, Aerospace, Gas, and Mechanical Engineering. This book includes important Gas tables for heat transfer, Isothermal flow with friction, isentropic flow, and shocks which are vital for compressible flow calculations. Gas tables are very useful for carrying out various calculations in Aerodynamics, Gas Dynamics and Fluid Mechanics. The book, along with gas tables, also contains a list of estimated numbers of power needed for compressors, blowers, and fans.
The fifteen chapters included in this book are very well explained and in an easy to understand language that even beginners can grasp. It covers all topics in detail that are needed to solve a compressible flow problem. The book starts off with an explanation on Gas dynamic properties of some gases and vapours and properties of standard atmosphere. The other chapters included in the book are Isentropic flow of perfect gases, Normal shocks in perfect gases, Oblique shocks in perfect gases, Flow of perfect gases with friction, Isothermal flow of perfect gases with friction, Flow of perfect gases with heat transfer, Prandtl-Meyer functions with mach angles, Approximate velocities and mach numbers of air corresponding to dynamic heads and pressure ratios, Static pressure drop in gas pipe lines, Isentropic compressor power, Pumping power for fans and blowers and SI, Metric and British Units. The multi-colour format of the book makes it a very good reference tool for classrooms, laboratories as well as an examination preparation guide.
