    • Viable Designs Through a Joint Probabilistic Estimation Technique 

      Bandte, Oliver; Mavris, Dimitri N.; DeLaurentis, Daniel A. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 1999-10)
      A key issue in complex systems design is measuring the 'goodness' of a design, i.e. finding a criterion through which a particular design is determined to be the 'best.' Traditional choices in aerospace systems design, ...
    • A Work Availability Perspective of Turbofan Engine Performance 

      Roth, Bryce Alexander; Mavris, Dimitri N. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2001-01)
      This paper presents a work availability perspective on the thermodynamic performance of the turbofan engine and contrasts this with the classic presentation, which describes performance based primarily on cycle efficiency. ...
    • A Work Potential Perspective of Engine Component Performance 

      Roth, Bryce Alexander (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2001-07)
      There is a strong interest within the propulsion community in applying the concept of thermodynamic work potential as a universal figure of merit for gauging the performance of prime-movers. In particular, exergy, gas ...
    • Work Transfer Analysis of Turbojet and Turbofan Engines 

      Roth, Bryce Alexander (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004)
      This paper explores the application of work transfer analysis to turbojet and turbofan engines. Emphasis is placed on understanding and applying the basic analysis method. The relationships between component performance ...
    • A Work Transfer Perspective of Propulsion System Performance 

      Roth, Bryce Alexander (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-07)
      This paper suggests an approach to analysis of propulsion system performance that focuses entirely on thermodynamic work potential (and loss thereof) as a universal basis for gauging engine performance. This work potential ...
