 About the Book 

This book covers the dynamic and vibration characteristics of turbomachines, including compressors, pumps and turbines. It can be used as an introduction to the subject for persons with vibration backgrounds or as a reference for engineers working in the field.Uniquely, it provides 33 separate rotordynamic case studies from real machines. Two of the case studies concern turbopumps for the Space Shuttle Main Engines: the remainder are for commercial centrifugal pumps and compressors and steam turbines.
