Energy Conversion

Windows package that calculates physical properties of various species, contains physical property coefficients, steam approximations for saturated and superheated areas, analyzes power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow.

Energy Conversion software from EngWare Moderators:
Gordan Feric

source code available SOURCE CODE AVAILABLE

Engineering Software has developed a new Windows based software package, Energy Conversion, that quickly, easily and reliably calculates thermodynamic and transport properties of gaseous, liquid and solid species, contains coefficients for the calculation of physical properties -- the user has the capability to use the coefficients to carry out independent engineering calculations involving physical properties of various species, steam approximations for both saturated and superheated areas, analyzes power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow.
How can Energy Conversion help you?
Energy conversion software can provide the user with reliable answers to many engineering questions. In general, first the fuel chemical energy gets converted into thermal. The thermal energy gets converted into mechanical. The mechanical energy is used to provide thrust (propulsion) or to get converted into electrical.

The energy conversion software covers physical properties of various species such as gases, liquids and solids; steam approximations; and analysis of power cycles, power cycle components/processes and compressible flow.

For the given input conditions, the user can get the output values. Different and quick "What If" cases can be studied.

This software package should prove to be a good tool for those who are involved at various levels with design, operation and management of energy conversion systems. It should provide the user with the opportunity to more quickly, easily and effectively do his/her work, explore more options, save time and give more confidence in carrying out engineering calculations.
