4434Internal Combustion Engine
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.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-fallNatural 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.The Thermal Wizard
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=83224
Collection of online tools for solving problems related to thermal analysis. Includes conduction, convection, and radiation calculators and material thermal properties.Shock Tube Calculator
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80753
Online calculator that simulates the performance of a laboratory shock tube. User input includes information about both the driver and driven gases and the desired Mach number. Output includes a full array of information about the various regions in the shock tube (T, p, V, etc) as well as the speed and Mach number of the reflected wave. Also included are the pertinent equations for a shock tube and a table of properties for a number of gases.Moody Friction Factor Calculator
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80752
Online calculator that uses an equation to simulate the familiar Moody Diagram for determining friction factors for flows through pipes and ducts. Both turbulent and laminar flows are considered. Also provided are tables of properties for a few common liquids and gases, and for a number of pipe and duct materials.
