Positive Displacement Machines: Modern Design Innovations and Tools explains the design and workings of a wide range of positive displacement pumps, compressors and gas expanders. Written at a mathematical and technical level, the book explores the most influential research in this field over the past decade, along with industry best practices. Sections highlight the importance of using the latest computation techniques and discuss how to follow the proper design procedures to achieve a desired outcome. Explains how these machines work on a fundamental level, helping the reader build a holistic understanding which aids complex problem- solving Describes how to mathematically model the performance of pumps, compressors and gas expanders Provides advice on how to design and optimize positive displacement machines to match a given application
Process Plant Machinery provides the mechanical, chemical or plant engineer with the information needed to choose equipment best suited for a particular process, to determine optimum efficiency, and to conduct basic troubleshooting and maintenance procedures. Process Plant Machinery is a unique single-source reference for engineers, managers and technical personnel who need to acquire an understanding of the machinery used in modern process plants: prime movers and power transmission machines; pumping equipment; gas compression machinery; and mixing, conveying, and separation equipment. Starting with an overview of each class, the book quickly leads the reader through practical applications and size considerations into profusely illustrated component descriptions. Where necessary, standard theory is expertly explained in shortcut formulas and graphs. Maintainability and vulnerability concerns are dealt with as well. Fully updated with all new equipment available Comprehensive Coverage Multi-industry relevance

Positive Displacement Pumps is a current reference guide for positive displacement pumps for both traditional and state-of-the-art testing methods, and serves as a bridge between textbooks and manufacturer's literature by providing equipment testing practices based on technical know-how, practical experience, and academic theory. With its simple, practical focus, this book not only is a resource guide to any engineer's task, but also adds important information to the overall literature of pump fundamentals and operating reliability: Written for field users, and terminology concisely defined. A mentoring guide highlighting areas for troubleshooting problem-solving when performance criteria are not met. Produced with industry consensus and gone through the same rigorous technical review process as other ETPC procedures.
This book is the result of a careful selection of contributors in the field of CFD. It is divided into three sections according to the purpose and approaches used in the development of the contributions. The first section describes the "high-performance computing" (HPC) tools and their impact on CFD modeling. The second section is dedicated to "CFD models for local and large-scale industrial phenomena." Two types of approaches are basically contained here: one concerns the adaptation from global to local scale, - e.g., the applications of CFD to study the climate changes and the adaptations to local scale. The second approach, very challenging, is the multiscale analysis. The third section is devoted to "CFD in numerical modeling approach for experimental cases." Its chapters emphasize on the numerical approach of the mathematical models associated to few experimental (industrial) cases. Here, the impact and the importance of the mathematical modeling in CFD are focused on. It is expected that the collection of these chapters will enrich the state of the art in the CFD domain and its applications in a lot of fields. This collection proves that CFD is a highly interdisciplinary research area, which lies at the interface of physics, engineering, applied mathematics, and computer science.
