http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83746
MecMovies is an extensive collection of examples, theory, and games designed to complement the entire Mechanics of Materials course. The software features impressive graphics and animation that are highly effective in visually communicating course concepts to students. Special emphasis is placed on developing the learner?s understanding and proficiency in basic concepts and skills through interactive exercises and games. Classroom implementation of the software has produced improved student performance and more positive student attitudes regarding the Mechanics of Materials course.

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75216
This site was developed to be an addition to a senior level internal combustion engine class. The site contains text that reviews the subject matter and 21 applets that perform simple calculations. The Engine Performance applets under the Thermodynamic section are the most involved.Thermal Power Plant Micro Module
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82625
This learning object discusses and provides animations of the basic processes and components in a thermal power plant. Cycle descriptions and animations include the Carnot cycle, the basic Rankine cycle, and advanced Rankine cycles with reheating and feedwater heating. In addition, a Rankine cycle calculator allows the user to vary several operating parameters and observe the effect on power output and cycle efficiency.EngineSim Version 1.5b
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78591
This software allows you to investigate how a jet engine produces thrust by changing the values of different engine parameters. Included are ramjet, turbojet, and turbofan engines. Altitude, flight speed, and engine component performance parameters are included among the many input variables provided in this engine simulation software developed by the NASA Glenn Research Center.Compressible Aerodynamics Calculator
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=75146
This calculator is designed to replace tables (e.g. NACA 1135) in performing basic compressible aerodynamics calculations. It is designed for those learning, teaching or using compressible aerodynamics. It computes (both forward and backward) isentropic flow, normal shock and oblique shock relations. It also has a scratch pad for doing the additional arithmetic usually needed to solve compressible aero problems.Virtual Tour of a Steam Turbine Cogeneration Power Plant
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=76351
This is virtual tour of the Michigan State University power plant that uses four steam-powered turbines. The power cycles include closed feedwater preheaters and open feedwater preheaters. Photos include a turbine when taken apart for maintenance.Converging-Diverging Nozzle Applet
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=77879
The purpose of this applet is to simulate the operation of a converging-diverging nozzle. User input includes the nozzle area ratio, back-pressure ratio, and specific heats ratio. The applet provides impressive graphical representations of the pressure, temperature, and Mach number along the nozzle.Two Link Robotic Arm
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=74512
This is a dynamic simulation of a two-link arm in free-fallSteamTables Calculator
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78560
This calculator is used to compute the thermodynamic properties of steam and water. Developed using steam properties from the 1967 ASME Steam Tables, it produces results consistent with the ASME 6th Edition Steam Tables. It is a collection of HTML pages with embedded Java Applets that helps users solve thermodynamic problems and perform parametric studies visually without any programming.Natural Convection Model for Rectangular Heat Sinks
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83223
Online calculator that predicts heat transfer from natural convection rectangular heat sinks. The online model incorporates a fin efficiency function, and allows for both single and back-to-back configurations.
