The Air Engine: Stirling Cycle Power for a Sustainable Future (Hardback)Allan J. Organ (editor)
- Not available
The successful use of the Stirling requires the addressing of a range of issues, including the long-standing mismatch between inherently favorable internal efficiency and wasteful external heating provision; the dearth of data on heat transfer and flow related to the task of first-principles design; and its limited RPM capability when operating with air (and nitrogen) as working fluids. All of these matters are explored in depth in The Air Engine: Stirling Cycle Power for a Sustainable Future. The account also includes previously unpublished insights into the character and potential deployment of two related engines -- the pressure-wave and thermal-lag.
