Small engines as bottoming cycle steam expanders for internal combustion engines

Article English OPEN
Weerasinghe, R.; Hounsham, S.;

Heat recovery bottoming cycles for internal combustion engines have opened new avenues for research into small steam expanders [1]. Dependable data for small steam expanders will allow us to predict on their suitability as bottoming cycle engines and the fuel economy ac... View more
