An ideal cycle in which compression and expansion take place at constant entropy, an ideal gas turbine.

Related Terms

BUBBLE POINT

The differential gas pressure at which the first steady stream of gas bubbles is emitted from a wetted filter element under specified test conditions.

ARC

A flash, caused by an electric current ionizing a gas or vapor.

ADSORPTION

Adhesion of the molecules of gases, liquids, or dissolved substances to a solid surface, resulting in relatively high concentration of the molecules at the place of contact; e.g. the plating out of an anti-wear additive on metal surfaces.

HARMONIC CONSTANTS

The amplitudes and epochs of the harmonic constituents of the tide or tidal current at any place

HARMONIC MOTION

The projection of circular motion on a diameter of the circle of such motion. Simple harmonic motion is produced if the circular motion is of constant speed. The combination of two or more simple harmonic motions results in compound harmonic motion.

ADIABATIC COMPRESSION

Compressing a gas without removing or adding heat.

FABRICATION INTEGRITY POINT

The differential gas pressure at which the first stream of gas bubbles are emitted from a wetted filter element under standard test conditions.

FLUID

A substance readily assuming the shape of the container in which it is placed; e.g. oil, gas, water or mixtures of these. A general classification including liquids and gases.

FRETTING

Wear phenomena taking place between two surfaces having oscillatory relative motion of small amplitude.

BROOKFIELD VISCOSITY

Apparent viscosity in cP determined by Brookfield viscometer, which measures the torque required to rotate a spindle at constant speed in oil of a given temperature. Basis for ASTM Method D 2983; used for measuring low temperature viscosity of lubricants.
