In 1824, Sadi Carnot postulated a monumental theory, which ranks with the greatest of scientific classics. He became immortal when he published his technical paper ”Reflections on the Motive Power of Heat”, which included his famous “Carnot cycle” theory. His theory is included in almost every thermodynamics, engineering, and physics course in colleges worldwide. It defines the maximum thermal efficiency of all heat engines operating within the same temperature range. Now, "The Most Efficient Engine" cycle, using a different approach, defines the maximum thermal efficiency as does the Carnot cycle. In addition, it relates temperature, efficiency, and power in a meaningful way, giving better insight to heat engine operation. This book includes the Carnot cycle, the Stirling cycle, and the "Most Efficient Engine" cycle, along with some relevant thermodynamics. As an interesting, surprising, and amazing sidelight, the "Most Efficient Engine" cycle equation, for efficiency at maximum power, is validated by and validates the widely quoted Chambadal - Novikov - Curzon - Ahlborn equation , giving the exact same results. e = 1-SQR (TL/TH) The book will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers. It promises to be another classic

About the Author:

John D. Jacoby was born in Manchester, New Hampshire. He attended Martin’s Corner School In Hooksett, NH., Central High School in Manchester, NH., the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH., the University of Utah In Salt Lake City, UT, and the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. During his sophomore year, he was drafted into the US Army and served in Camp San Luis Obispo, CA, “The Pentagon”, and the “Supreme Headquarters of the Allied Powers in Europe”. He received an honorable discharge and returned to the University of Washington where he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering. After graduation, he worked for various firms on many kinds of structures. Eventually, he moved to Sun Valley, Idaho and began his own small engineering practice, becoming licensed in eight western states. He found the world of energy interesting and spent a lot of time researching solar energy and heat engines. This book is a by-product of those interests. Both competitively and recreationally, he has skied and played tennis. In 2011 a patent (US 7,900,405 B1) for a spherical dome was awarded to him. In 2014 he received a patent (US 8,683,797 B1) for an engine based on this book.
