This course deals with the gas power cycles. One part of the course is on IC engines and it focuses onthe thermodynamic cycles for different fuels suitable for automobiles. Other part of the course hasemphasis on thermodynamic cycle of aircraft engines and the components of the aircraft engine. Thusthis course would provide an understanding on electricity generation or transportation applicationusing gas as working medium.
