This paper approaches the problem of reheat from the analytical standpoint. Relations are derived for the reheat gain in the saturated- and superheated-steam regions, which show the influence of pressure ratio, temperature, efficiency and number of expansions. A comparison between the calculated reheat and the reheat computed graphically from the Keenan-Keyes properties of steam indicates good agreement over a wide range of conditions.
