Book Description:
The finite element method has undergone a major development from a detailed mathematical background for writing tailor made computer programs to a user based approach for applying available software to engineering analysis and design scenarios. Finite Element Analysis by G. Lakshmi Narasaiah bpok starts with a short overview on fluid mechanics, with numerous engineering applications and examples. After fluid mechanics book then presents and analyzes major types of fluid machinery and the major classes of turbines. Last chapter of this book cover pump technology. The result is a book that includes background concepts and practical coverage of turbine technologies, with case studies, problems and examples using ANSYS code to show use of a specific program.
