How do you work out the size of boiler required for any given size of steam engine?
Hi! I'm working on an own design boiler for a D10 machine. I created an Excel sheet where you can calculate the steam usage by the machine and necessary water volume. I also posted on a Dutch website and it fell in good hands, even with some steam guru's. Please note that this calculation is not for compound or triple expansion. It is for single expansion only.
Next step will be to calculate the surface area of your boiler. There are tons of books with formulas written about that, but If I find the time I'll share my other Excel sheet where you can find this also.
I'm from Holland so if you see some mistakes in my writing in the Excel sheet, please don't hesitate to give me a heads up so I can correct it. This makes it easier for others to understand and I'm learning a bit...
Hmm, *.xlsx files are not able to upload. @Charlotte, is there a way to arrange this?
I'd love to have a copy of this spread sheet. Perhaps you can upload it to a storage server and share the link?
Hi bencsly, do you have a suggestion for a public storage server? Dropbox has disabled the public folders since last month and I'm out of options at this moment.
Looking forward to it.
