The article described, is a MATLAB developed Diesel Engine Thermodynamic and Engine test Performance analysis program, SDZEL. The program provides a fast calculation of diesel engine parameters and takes care of the tedium of repetitive hand calculations when parameter(s) values vary. The program capability is shown through a numerical example. The MATLAB codes are also provided to aid interested developers.
