The boiler calculator is a project inspired by someone asking about the math behind the boilers in Railcraft (the Minecraft mod) years ago. They wanted to calculate how much fuel they'd need to produce to keep a boiler running. That made the want to create a web-application that could calculate that. And this is the result.

It's gone through a few iterations in the beginning, which you can see in the history post. Currently it's in a state of feature freeze because I don't have anything I want to add to it at the moment. Optimally I'd like to do a rewrite of the front end at some point. Turn it into an API based system with a JS front-end, which could also open my system up to others wishing to make their own clients.

Since it's stable that is not a priority however.
