Thermodynamics is fundamental to all aspects of aerodynamic design and analysis of centrifugal compressors. This chapter introduces the key thermodynamic principles, with special emphasis on this application. No attempt is made to provide complete derivations or “proofs” of the concepts presented. Readers who desire more detailed development of any of these concepts can refer to any basic thermodynamics textbook.
