I completed my thermodynamics project, finally! We had presentations today, all went well. All I can say is, damn, that was one hell of a challenging task. I am trying to get my hands on the assignment sheet in electronic format so I can post it. Here is the report though, if anyone cares to read through it. We had little time and had to write it the night before it was due. It's not exactly as good as I'd have liked it to be, but such is life.

The assignment was to design a power and air-conditioning system for a hospital in sub sahara africa using 75kW microturbines that run on Ethanol. I cant upload them here, so they are on my craptastic website.

You can click on the paper, 232 project report, or the ppt presentation for a quick review of what it talks about. If you want to run the code, the EES file is provided as well.
