Thermodynamics & Matlab.
I’m studying for my Engineering class and need an explanation.
Consider the specs of a 3.5-liter Ford Eco boost engine.
Bore: 92.5 mm
Stroke: 86.6 mm
Compression ratio: 10.5:1
Although this engine is turbocharged, let us assume a naturally aspirated engine operating at an atmospheric pressure of 101.325 kPa. Assuming at the start of the compression stroke is at atmospheric pressure, develop a MATLAB code to plot
- a)Thermal efficiency versus varying compression ratio between 10.5 and 16.
- b)The change in temperature at the beginning of heat addition process versus varying compression ratio between 10.5 and 16
- c)Consider the autoignition properties of 89 Unleaded gasoline and suggest which compression ratio will be the limiting condition for this fuel.
