Is there an illustrated turbine list for the various manufacturers and developments in their evolution? I'm working on a 1920 concrete dam with associated concrete turbine pit in Augusta County, VA that took over from a beautiful stone mill that was demolished in the 1970's. The turbine pit has two but with no markings. Not having any luck tracking down enough types to get answers.

Have a look at the following links in Wikipedia:

Pelton wheel: [en.wikipedia.org]

Francis turbine: [en.wikipedia.org]

Kaplan turbine: [en.wikipedia.org]

Turgo turbine: [en.wikipedia.org]

Cross-flow turbine: [en.wikipedia.org]

They might just be what you are looking for.

Best regards
