gas turbines

Hi! could you tell me if you are aware of either software o a book on mechanical calculations for gas turbines

e.g. at a certain rpm and inlet conditions producing 3000 hp if inlet temp increases to a new value, what rpm would be required to develop the same hp

similarly, interaction of different turbine parameters

thank you very much

RE: gas turbines

You should access your Oems comp performance curves for the given gas gravity and suction temp. There you will see all the speed, hp, head and efficiency relationship you desire. There are general functions, but such will make you assume an efficiency value that cannot be determined w/o the analysis of the performance curves.
