Power Cycles and Power Cycle Components/Processes Analysis

The ideal, simple and basic power cycles (Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle for both power and propulsion applications, Otto Cycle and Diesel Cycle) and ideal power cycle components/processes (compression, combustion and expansion) are presented in this course material.  In the presented power cycles and power cycle components/process analysis, air is used as the working fluid. For each power cycle thermal efficiency derivation is presented with a simple mathematical approach.  Also, for each power cycle, a T - s diagram and power cycle major performance trends (thermal efficiency, specific power output and power output) are plotted in a few figures as a function of compression ratio, turbine inlet temperature and/or final combustion temperature and working fluid mass flow rate.  It should be noted that this course material does not deal with costs (capital, operational or maintenance). For compression and expansion, the technical performance of mentioned power cycle components/processes is presented with a given relationship between pressure and temperature.  While for combustion, the technical performance at stoichiometric conditions is presented knowing the specific enthalpy values for combustion reactants and products, given as a function of temperature.  This course material provides the compression and expansion T - s diagrams and their major performance trends plotted in a few figures as a function of compression and expansion pressure ratio and working fluid mass flow rate.  For each combustion case considered, combustion products composition on both weight and mole basis is given in tabular form and plotted in a few figures.  Also, flame temperature, stoichiometric oxidant to fuel ratio and fuel higher heating value (HHV) are presented in tabular form and plotted in a few figures.  The provided output data and plots allow one to determine the major combustion performance laws and trends. In this course material, the student gets familiar with the ideal simple and basic power cycles and power cycle components/processes and their T - s and h - T diagrams, operation and major performance trends.

Power Cycles and Power Cycle Components/Processes Ideal vs Real Operation Analysis

The simple and basic power cycles (Brayton Cycle, Otto Cycle and Diesel Cycle) and power cycle components/processes (compression, combustion and expansion) are presented in this course material.In the presented power cycles and power cycle components/process analysis, air is used as the working fluid. For each power cycle, the thermal efficiency derivation is presented with a simple mathematical approach.Also, for each power cycle, a T - s diagram and cycle major performance trends (thermal efficiency, specific power output and power output) are plotted in a few figures as a function of compression ratio, turbine inlet temperature and/or final combustion temperature, working fluid mass flow rate and both isentropic compression and expansion efficiency.It should be noted that this course material does not deal with costs (capital, operational or maintenance). For compression and expansion, the technical performance of mentioned power cycle components/processes for ideal and real operation is presented with a given relationship between pressure and temperature and compression and expansion efficiency. Complete combustion at constant pressure with and without heat loss is presented.Six different fuels (carbon, hydrogen, sulfur, coal, oil and gas) react with air as the oxidant at different stoichiometry values (stoichiometry => 1) and oxidant inlet temperature values. Reactants and combustion products specific enthalpy values change with an increase in the temperature and such specific enthalpy values are presented in a plot where one can notice the flame temperature definition.  Physical properties of basic combustion reactants and products species are presented in a specific enthalpy vs temperature plot. The combustion technical performance at stoichiometry => 1 conditions is presented knowing the specific enthalpy values for combustion reactants and products, given as a function of temperature.Combustion products composition on both weight and mole basis is given in tabular form and plotted in a few figures. Also, flame temperature, oxidant to fuel ratio and fuel higher heating value (HHV) are presented in tabular form and plotted in a few figures. The provided output data and plots allow one to determine the major combustion performance laws and trends. In this course material, the student gets familiar with the simple and basic power cycles and power cycle components/processes and their T - s and h - T diagrams, ideal vs real operation and major performance trends.

Compressible Flow Components Ideal vs Real Operation Analysis

The subsonic nozzle, diffuser and thrust analysis is presented only for the air as the working fluid.The technical performance of mentioned compressible flow components is presented with a given relationship between temperature and pressure as a function ofthe Mach Number and isentropic nozzle and diffuser efficiency. This course material provides the compressible flow components T - s diagrams and their major performance trends (stagnation over static temperature and pressure ratio values) are plotted in a few figures as a function of the Mach Number. In this course material, the student gets familiar with the compressible flow components (nozzle, diffuser and thrust), their T - s diagrams, ideal vs real operation and major performance trends.

Designing Glazing Systems Under the Updated UFC 4-010-01, ATFP Requirements (Course)

Originally Presented: July 9, 2015 Course Length: 1.5 Hours Course Credit Hours: 1.5 PDHs/ 1.5 AIA LU/HSW Moderator: Rad Delaney, AIA, F. SAME, CDM Smith Speakers: Jeffrey Nielsen, P.E., HQ AFCEC/COSC Lynne Bregmann, P.E., Hinman Consulting Engineers, Inc. The DoD Antiterrorism/Force Protection Document (UFC 4-010-01) is a design criteria required to be considered on all DoD facilities. Standard 10, Windows and Skylights contains the design criteria for mitigating the hazards caused by non-blast resistant windows and skylights. • This webinar provides additional detail on how to comply with the DOD blast resistant window and skylight criteria. The first part of the presentation will focus on the main changes to the criteria and discuss the implications of these changes. Highlight other reference and tools available to assist in designing windows for DoD facilities. • The second part of the presentation provides case studies and specific examples of how the Stand 10 criteria has been interrupted and implemented for various types of DOD projects including Design-Build, Design-Bid-Build, and Window Vendor work. The project examples not only highlight the implementation of Standard 10 but how other design decisions and UFC 4-010-01 Standards affect the Standard 10 requirements.
