ALKACYCL: a basic computer program for the analysis of alkali metal Rankine power cycles

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

ALKACYCL is a computer program that analyzes Rankine power cycles utilizing an alkali metal as the cycle working fluid. Cycles may have from zero to three stages of regenerative feed heating. The program is written in BASICA language and can be used on an IBM-PC or PC-compatible computer with 128 kbytes of RAM. Output results include mass and energy balance information, cycle efficiency, and sizes and weights for piping and feed heaters. Listing and sample program output are included.
