AxCYCLE™ Thermodynamic Cycle Design Workshop

This is an introduction to AxCYCLE™ for design, analysis and optimization of thermodynamic cycles utilizing steam and combined gas-steam cycles as examples.All registrants will receive a trial software license of AxCYCLE EDU to supplement the subject matter. Students will be able to follow along to the practical exercises detailed throughout the video course.

This comprehensive course includes several hours of videos featuring software demonstrations and explanations related to the design, analysis and optimization of thermodynamic cycles using AxCYCLE™. Course topics include gas turbine/supercritical CO2 (Brayton) cycles, steam cycles, combined cycles, refrigeration cycles, ORC, and waste heat recovery systems.

This course is broken down into different sections and chapters with quizzes at the end of each video (about 30 minutes) to ensure the knowledge presented has been understood, retained and can be effectively applied to engineering challenges.
