Default Getting drunk by myself learning about the Miller cycle.


I have to do a presentation on Monday for my internal combustion class. My teacher made it so the first 3/4 of the semester were a compressed Advanced Thermo class and the last 1/4 is an optional IC class.
We have to do a presentation on a relatively new advancement in IC engine efficiency. I was checking out the 4 stroke Atkinson cycle and found the Miller cycle.
Atkinson:

Miller:

I decided to do my presentation on that.
Right now I'm trying to find pressure-volume and temperature-entropy diagrams for it for my powerpoint.
Had some beer left over from yesterday...I'm Irish... figured why not.
Anyone else dorkin it out at the end of the semester?

My friends brother has a Millenia. It'* pretty classy.
Alright. I'm finished making my powerpoint for the presentation. If anyone is interested in seeing it just shoot me an e-mail. Although it is kinda selling myself short because how I will verbally bring it together and explain certian parts will really make it.
