MECH 3020 Thermodynamics II Spring 2011: Homework set #2 5. Say a 4–stroke Diesel engine, with r = 18, q H = 1500 kJ/kg, and V D = 12 L, is operating at 1200 RPM. (a) Calculate the power output from the engine. Use the usual assumptions for the initial state. (b) Calculate the mass flow rate through the engine. This will be ˙ m = m RPM 60 · 2 , with m = P 1 V 1 RT 1 (c) Calculate the temperature and pressure at the end of the power stroke, state 4. (d) Say now the exhaust stream leaves the engine at temperature T 4 and pressure P 4 with mass flow ˙ m . How much power could be derived from this flow via a reversible expansion across an adiabatic turbine to 1 atm? What would the net thermal ef- ficiency of the engine now be (including the engine and the turbine)? The mass of air in the engine is m = P 1 V 1 RT 1 = P 1 V D RT 1 (1 - 1 /r ) = 0 . 0149 kg The cycle is now analyzed step–by–step, using a con- stant C P assumption: T 2 = T 1 r k - 1 = 953 K , P 2 = P 1 r k = 5794 kPa T 3 = T 2 + q H C P = 2441 K , P 3 = P 2 r c = T 3 T 2 = 2 . 56 T 4 = T 3 ± V 4 V 3 ² k - 1 = ³ r c r ´ k - 1 = 1119 K P 4

The overall thermal eciency is = w d + w t q H = 0 . 84 The total power produced is W = m ( w d + w t ) = 188 . 9 kW 1...
