Efficiency Analysis of a Diesel Cycle

What is it about?

The performance of an air-standard Diesel cycle with considerations of internal irreversibility described by using the compression and expansion efficiencies, variable specific heats, and losses due to heat transfer and friction is investigated by using finite-time thermodynamics.

Why is it important?

The heat transfer effect on an air-standard Diesel cycle using thermodynamics and mathematics (Artificial neural network) is unique.

I hope this article help to other related researchers to analyze the same thermodynamic cycles and more complicated ones.
