Abstract

THE estimation of the performance of the components of gas turbine plants requires specific heat data of four‐figure accuracy, particularly where small differences in the calculated quantities are necessary as in part‐load performance. This usually involves the use of accurate charts of kp against temperature, although four‐figure tables are also available.
