Dr. M. Thirumaleshwar graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Karnataka Regional Engineering College, Surathkal, Karnataka, India, in the year 1965. He obtained M.Sc (cryogenis) from University of Southampton, U.K. and Ph.D. (cryogenics) from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India.
This is Part – I of the book: “Applied Thermodynamics: Software Solutions”.
This is a logical continuation from the book “Basic Thermodynamics: Software Solutions”, published earlier.
In this book, problems on ‘Gas power cycles’ are solved.
Cycles dealt with are: Carnot cycle, Otto cycle (for petrol engines), Diesel and Dual combustion cycles (for Diesel engines) and Stirling cycle.
Software used are: Mathcad, Engineering Equation Solver (EES), and The Expert System on Thermodynamics (TEST).
An introduction to these softwares is given in Part-I of the free eBook “Basic Thermodynamics: Software Solutions”, published in five parts, which can be downloaded for free from www.bookboon.com.
