    STEAM TURBINES–Definition and comparison with Reciprocating Steam Engine

    STEAM TURBINES–Definition and comparison with Reciprocating Steam Engine STEAM TURBINES Steam turbine is a prime mover which gets its rotary motion from the gradual change in momentum of steam jet by simply changing the direction of the jet which is coming at high velocity from nozzles and striking the blades of the turbine. ADVANTAGES OF […]

    THERMODYNAMICS: Nozzle and diffuser

    THERMODYNAMICS: Nozzle and diffuser  Definition of a nozzle It is a duct (passage) of variable cross section (area decreases from entrance onwards) in which velocity increases and pressure decreases. It is true as long as velocity at the inlet of the nozzle is sub-sonic i.e. velocity is less the velocity of sound or Mach number […]
