1 ME 416 Computer Assisted Design of Thermal Systems Practice Problems #1 Design Methodology, Thermodynamic Derivatives, Curve Fitting 1. A utility company has determined that due to projected population growth in its service area, there will be a 15% increase in electric power demand by the year 2010. Provide a list of mega-alternatives to be considered. Evaluate these alternatives as non-functional, functional-unsatisfactory, or functional- satisfactory. Give reasons for your evaluations. 2. Some tracks of the Formula I Grand Prix circuit place high braking loads on the cars. Under these conditions the brakes can overheat and eventually fail. Provide a list of approaches to cool the braking system. 3. A decision matrix is to be developed for the alternatives in problem #2. Develop a list of design criteria topics and suggest a weighting scale. 4. Using the Jacobian reduction method develop a relationship for the entropy of
