I have retired as Professor-Mechanical in Sri Venkateswara College of Engineering and Technology under Anna University affiliated colleges in TamilNadu, India. I have 19 years of Industrial and 20 years of teaching experience. I am learning Maple for the past three and half years hoping to make atleast one appreciable maple presentation.

Dear Users,

I have received a congratulations from a Mapleprime user for my post (on Finite Element Analysis - Basics) posted two years earlier. I  did not touch that subject for two years for obvious reasons. Now that a motivation has come, I have decided to post my second application using embedded components. This I was working for the past two years and with the support from Maplesoft technical support team and Dr.RobertLopez. I thank them here for this workbook has come out well to my satisfaction and has given me confidence to post it public.

About the workbook

I have tried to improve the performance of a 2-Stroke gasoline engine to match that of a four stroke engine by using exhaust gas recirculation. Orifice concept is new and by changing the orifice diameter and varying the % of EGR, performance was monitored and data stored in Excel workbook. These data can be imported to Maple workbook by you as you want for each performance characteristic. The data are only my experimental and not authentic for any commercial use.

This Maple workbook generates curves from data for various experiments conducted by modifying the field variables namely Orifice diameter, % Exhaust gas Recirculation and Heat Exchanger Cooling. Hence optimum design selection is possible for best performance.

Thanks for commenting, congratulating or critisising!! All for my learning and improving my Maple understanding!! 

I am learning to use maple for my notes preparation for the subject Finite Element Analysis. It is interesting to know that how often we blame maple or computer for the silly mistakes we made in our commands and expect the exact answers. I have used a small file and find it easy to analyse my mistakes fatser. If we make a small mistake in a big file, it not only gives us problem finding our mistakes, it leads to more mistakes in other parts as well. A command working in one document need not necessarily work the same way in other document.

I have made my first document and people will come with suggestions to make appropriate modifications in the various sections to improve my knowledge on maple as well as the subject.
