Thermodynamic cycles: Carnot, Brayton and Rankine Data?

This data-file contains some simple PV plots and TS plots from different thermodynamic cycles, such as the Carnot Cycle, Brayton Cycle, Rankine Cycle and Otto Cycles.

The maximum theoretical efficiency of each different thermodynamic cycle can be derived from formulas: temperature deltas defined all of the cycles, especially the Carnot and Rankine cycles. Efficiency can also be expressed in terms of compression ratios for the Brayton and Otto Cycles.

Over time we will add more data to this file on the thermodynamics of different working fluids, including their Enthalpy, Entropy, Specific Heats, Cp/Cv, latent heat (where relevant) and densities.
