Abstract
Optimum system designs were determined for two turbine engines operating on RC-1 and one reciprocating engine operating on RC-2 fluid. A Rankine cycle engine optimization computer program was used. RC-1 fluid was a mixture containing 60 Mo1%, pentafluorobenzene and 40 Mo1% hexafluororbenzene. RC-2 fluid was a mixture containing 65 Mol% water and 35 Mol% 2-methylpyridine. The principal results of the analysis are predictions of engine size, weight and efficiency (vehicle miles per gallon). Computations leading to these optimum designs took into account five different steady-state load points to represent typical driving conditions. Each optimization was carried out under a number of fixed constraints selected to ensure a practical system.
