Pedagogical Visualization of a Nonideal Carnot Engine

Johansson, Jonas LU (2014) In Journal of Thermodynamics 2014.
Abstract
We have implemented a visualization tool for the demonstration of a nonideal Carnot engine, operating at finite time.The cycle time

can be varied using a slide bar and the pressure-volume, temperature-entropy, power-time, and efficiency-time diagrams change

interactively and are shown on one screen.We have evaluated the visualization tool among engineering students at university level

during an introductory course on thermodynamics and we review and discuss the outcome of the evaluation.
