Re: Under the Hood, Stirling Engine Vehicles (Photo Catalogu

I think you will especially like the PDF at the top of the first post... I have saved a copy of the images from the internet, in case the links were to disappear. B...

Re: My stirling engine project

Hi jorgealdobr, If you can't use windows print-screen functions- Then here's some freeware/software that i use to capture screenshots. I've been using it for many years, for many situations, without fail. You can choose multiple capture size/options, file types, file destinations, hot keys, cropping...

Re: Is the mm5 coffee cup Stirling engine completely airtigh

Ah, i see.. I would say yes, if the temp increase was significant enough. An easy tell would be to see the rpm increase... It would be very nice to see if the rpm increased by the same amount as the theoretical efficiency difference, although it may not for different reasons, but its worth a try! fo...

Re: what cycle does this engine use?

Yea, i see what your saying Blade. I guess in a loose way i meant, hot air in, cooler air and power out.. as opposed to the inverse- cool air in, warmer air and power out.. But that is definitely too simplistic a comparison Your right- the flame of ignorance doesn't hurt when you burn.. :wink: much ...

Re: Under the Hood, Stirling Engine Vehicles (Photo Catalogu

Thought i'd do a post to bump up this older thread. I found some more info on the elusive 1964 Calvair with some interesting photo imagery to boot, Plus I've progressively added a few other vehicle images to the original post over time. (refer to original post...) also Ian, Was wondering if you were...

(imo) (I do have some further questions but will leave it for later) Here is some stuff that...
