Abstract: Using finite-time thermodynamics, the relations between thermal efficiency, compression and expansion ratios for an ideal naturally-aspirated (air-standard) Miller cycle have been derived. The effect of the temperature-dependent specific heat of the working fluid on the irreversible cycle performance is significant. The conclusions of this investigation are of importance when considering the designs of actual Miller-engines.
