I spent most of my time working with the rankine cycle calculator. I was primarily interested in the simulation aspect of the module. I probably played around with it for close to an hour.
The quality of content:
The application was very nice and helpful. It did a good job of relating the concepts and properties of the rankine cycle through the T-s graph.
The potential effectiveness for enhancing teaching and learning:
The application could be easily integrated into a classroom setting. It can be used to show the many variances of the cycle, and how to manipulate them via pressure or temperature changes within the system.
The ease of using the materials:
It was pretty easy to use as long as you understood the simple relations, so that you weren't trying to alter the extraction pressure to something that was higher than the boiler pressure.
