• Are P-V and T-S Diagrams Meaningful for Regenerative Cryocoolers? 

      Kittel, Peter (Georgia Institute of TechnologyICC Press, 2008-05)
      P-V and T-S diagrams are commonly used tools to illustrate thermodynamic cycles. For recuperative cycles, it is easy to idealize a cycle so that the history of a gas element can be traced on P-V and T-S diagrams as it flows ...
