Re: Composite Material Regenerator

I'm sure you understand it correctly foha. The idea is pretty unrefined on my part, and I like the suggestions so far. If you start to look at it, there are a number of different approaches that could be applied. just a loose suggestion is maybe materials that are less conductive should be at the co...

Composite Material Regenerator

so I am wondering other members thoughts and experiences on the concept of a composite regenerator. What I mean is a regenerator comprised of different materials that are either interwoven or alternately layered. Such a matrix could have the benefit of being able to tune the regenerator response, re...

Re: Existing applications of the Stirling engine

Hey Triangle.Stirling, It was a bit of a journey finding the supporting images, they came from all corners of the internet (and beyond). Its worth using different search engines and to use the advanced search options that they offer, when trying to track down specific information. It helps sift thro...

Re: Existing applications of the Stirling engine

Here's a thread with a list of engines from forum member - spinningmagnets It's not totally comprehensive but is a darn good compilation. obviously many of them were never production engines and also production may have finished for whatever reasons on some of the others Index of modern Stirling eng...

Re: Philips MP1002CA Stirling Engine

An awesome inheritance. You have one of about 150 ever made (which your aware of). I hope you come to appreciate what a privilege it is to be the custodian of such an engine. Starting prior to ww2, Philips did intense research and made some amazing advancements on these engines, primarily motivated ...

Re: Funny Stirling Engines!!

Yep, some of the jokes came out ok. While others seem a little lame, but, i guess, so is my sense of humor :wink: . I'm sure there are more convoluted gizmos out there yet to be found that would be right at home on this thread, so will have to keep an eye out. If someone made a tin can engine with b...

Re: colapible regenerator/displacer

I think many people into Stirlings need to think outside the box just to get these engines. Although I don't put up some of my whacky thoughts, probably in part to avoid ridicule, but also sometimes I like to keep some ideas to myself for other reasons. I wouldn't take it to heart if people don’t re...

Re: new russian engine design?

I had a peek foha, To my eyes, It kinda resembles a swashplate design, but refined to one cylinder and making the piston/s the 'plate'. For me, I can see the concept being adapted to an Alpha configuration with the pistons being directly opposed (facing each other), and being able to slide back and ...
