Development of Low-Irreversibility Engines

  title={Development of Low-Irreversibility Engines},
  author={Christopher F. Edwards},
Introduction An engine is a device that converts some fraction of the energy in a resource into work. The most work that can be developed by a particular engine design is its reversible work. The irreversibility of an engine is the difference between the reversible work that it could develop and the actual work that it performs; it is the lost work. In this… CONTINUE READING
