How to use this method
(1) Please input or select a mean pressure, a swept volume, gas temperatures and a kind of the working gas on the calculated condition.
(2) When the engine is operated at the design pressure and the permitted temperature (maximum temperature), please check 'Use the design and permitted values'.
(3) If not so, please check 'Do not use the design and permitted values' and input the design pressure and the permitted temperature.
(4) Please click 'START'.
(5) Maximum output power and the engine speed when the engine get the maximum output power are calculated under my experimental equations.
