Has anyone got a good source for the detailed performance equations for an impulse turbine?

RE: Operating charactistics of an impulse turbine

There are many fine, but old, texts on steam and gas turbines. I suggest that you start with Salisbury,J.K.; "Steam Turbines and Their Cycles"; John Wiley and Sons, Inc; 1950.  Stodola, A.; "Steam and Gas Turbines"; Peter Smith; 1945
Church, E.F.; "Steam Turbines"; McGraw Hill; 1950.

Thanks for the info.  I've finally found my old thermo book.  It had most of what I needed but I'll definitly keep my eyes open for one of the references on your list.
