Author: David G. Wilson, Theododios Korakianitis Title: The Design of High-Efficiency Turbomachinery and Gas Turbines Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.com/Design-High-Efficiency-Turbomachinery-Gas-Turbines/dp/0133120007/ Prerequisities: Calculus, Introductory Physics and/or Aerospace Engineering, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Level: Undergraduate, Upper Level, or Graduate The book could also be used as a supplementary/complementary text in an aerospace engineering propulsion course. Aeroderivative gas turbines are used for fixed power sources, either alone or as a front end of a combined cycle (Brayton + Rankine) power plant. I used the 1985 edition.
