Advanced Power Cycles and Combustion Technical Background

ISBN  1-58514-502-5

Price:  $24.99 


Engineering Software has developed a PDF technical background material (Advanced Power Cycles and Combustion Technical Background) that quickly, easily and reliably analyzes power cycles and combustion and presents physical properties and engineering equations.  


Air, argon, helium and nitrogen are considered as the working fluid when analyzing power cycles.  When dealing with combustion, six different fuels (carbon, hydrogen, sulfur, coal, oil and gas) react with air and oxygen enriched air as the oxidant at different stoichiometry values (stoichiometry => 1) and oxidant input temperature values.
