Demonstrates how to design, build and optimize Stirling engines. A broad selection of engines are described, giving valuable insight into the many different types of hot air engines, and a great deal of information relating to the manufacture of these engines is included. This is both relevant to beginner and professional.
Hot air engines, often called Stirling engines, are among the most interesting and intriguing engines ever to be designed. They run on just about any fuel, from salad oil and hydrogen to solar and geothermal energy. They produce a rotary motion that can be used to power anything, from boats and buggies to fridges and fans. This book demonstrates how to design, build, and optimise Stirling engines. A broad selection of Roy's engines is described, giving a valuable insight into the many different types and a great deal of information relating to the home manufacture of these engines is included in the workshop section.
