Gas Dynamics with Plots Spreadsheet
Engineering Software has developed a spreadsheet (Gas Dynamics with Plots Spreadsheet) that quickly, easily and reliably calculates thermodynamic and transport properties of a few gaseous, liquid and solid species, analyzes power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow.
In this spreadsheet, the technical performance plots are provided so that the user can quickly observe trends and changes of the major input and output values/parameters on the performance when analyzing power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow.
Temperature (270 K < T < 5,000 K)
C(S), H2(G), S(S), N2(G), O2(G), H2O(L), CH4(G), C2H2(G), C2H4(G), C2H6(G), CO(G), CO2(G), H2O(G), SO2(G) and AIR
Power Cycles -- Ideal + Real Operation
Brayton (Power + Propulsion)
Power Cycle Components/Processes -- Ideal + Real Operation
Compressible Flow -- Ideal + Real Operation
Velocity of Sound
Properties (Stagnation and Static)
This spreadsheet should prove to be a good tool for those who are involved at various levels with design, operation and management of energy conversion systems (power and propulsion systems). It should provide you with the opportunity to more quickly, easily and effectively do your work, explore more options, save time and give more confidence in carrying out your calculations.
