Abstract : The book presents the general principles of the thermodynamics of a liquid-vapor system and applies them to various cases of adiabatic and nonadiabatic one-dimensional flows in a thermodynamically balanced vapor-liquid medium. The conditions for development of critical flow are considered, and relationships are given for determining the critical speed, boundary flow rates and relationships between thermal parameters. Several cases of nonstationary motion and flow under the conditions of disturbed phase equilibrium of the system are analyzed. (Author)
