Thermodynamic analysis is used to examine a range of power cycles including internal combustion engines and gas turbines. Different levels of analysis will be used including air-standard and cold-air-standard. The thermodynamics of gaseous combustion processes will be explored. The majority of the course will apply these analysis techniques to the gas turbine cycle, and its range of applications including aircraft and marine propulsion and power generation.
