Re: digital steam engine indicator

So, let's see. I'm still looking for a better way to have the files uploadabl, as gofile removes the files after 10 days of inactivity. But for now, I try to stick with renewing the link until my head if free enough for looking for a more solid solution. So, if the link doesn't work anymore, it mean...

Re: digital steam engine indicator

I noticed it is not easy to simply copy the code out of the document, since it wouldn't copy the format and the page numbers and headers would be in the middle of the code. So, I am uploading the code separately. The Manual will be changed accordingly.

Re: digital steam engine indicator

Thank you the both of you for the explanation. I noticed I asked in a little clumsy way, which might have been a little misleading. So, does that mean "PLAN/33000" IS the proper calculation for the pressure-volume work without efficiency factors?

Re: digital steam engine indicator

Since I was wondering if the download link gets lost while this thread is going on, I simply put the download link into my signature. I don't need to dig up the link all the time that way. I think I'll still use this threat though to collect any input, announce new versions etc.

Re: digital steam engine indicator

Yes, that's all settled. The indicator has the options to choose between single- and double action and all the other important stuff as far as I am aware of uptil right now.

Re: digital steam engine indicator

Thank you. I also tried to structure the code itself to make it as readable as possible to make modding for others easier. Also, as I now have uploaded the manual, I got a question myself: I used the standard imperial-unit formula PLAN/33000 to calculate the indicated HP. I am now wondering if there...

Re: digital steam engine indicator

After millions of years of working on the steam engine indicator, I finally want to publish it here. I originally wasn't even interested in the digital steam engine indicator and now, it has been so much time, that I've been spending on it after being drawn to the challenge. I do suffer from severe ...

Re: Inspiration for the builder: A list of other vertical boilers

Wow, the manning boiler really takes it up a notch in built height. Perfect to spare space on your pontoon boat of which I am a big fan.
