Product description

Review

"Consultant mechanical engineer Boyce integrates developments in areas such as lubrication and controls for gas turbines during the four years since the previous edition of his textbook and reference. Applications have also expanded rapidly in such fields as petrochemicals, power generation, and offshore industries. The book could be used for graduate or undergraduate turbomachinery courses or in company training programs in the fields mentioned. It covers the theory and practice of design; major components; materials, fuel technology, and fuel systems; auxiliary components and accessories; and installation, operation, and maintenance." --Reference and Research News, October 2012

This book needed a proofread for sure. It has more grammar errors than my kids papers.

The four stars is for the content. It is very in depth and everything from markets to the math behind turbines. It sits on my desk as my work manual.
