Thermodynamic charts for internal-combustion-engine fluids

W. J. McCann
Jul 1949

Thermodynamic properties of the products of combustion of five different mixtures of air with typical aircraft-engine fuel have been calculated from the most reliable thermodynamic data available in 1943. The calculations are presented in five charts of internal energy plotted against entropy with values of temperature, specific volume, pressure, and enthalpy indicated corresponding to 80, 90, 100, 110, and 120 percent of the fuel-air ratio for perfect combustion.
