You can try to find for exemple "stirlin engine" or another: ... s/id1.html ... 08Projects ... ngine.html ... ermal.html

Peter Fette's site: ... ain2.html/ ... ngine2.htm ... ng-engine/

Interesting concept:

Interesting patent:

Found a link to a cryocooler design book that may interest a few. ... &q&f=false

The book is "Cryocoolers 13"

I have been wondering if there would be interest in a collaborative project to design and perhaps build a Stirling Engine for an (unspecified as yet) application?
The project is outlined at
There are so many enthusiasts with great ideas and engineering skill regarding Stirling engine technology and most are working on their own projects. I wondered if there was an opportunity for anybody who is interested to collaborate on a design and application?
The design, application and ethos would be specified by the participants and then we can see how far we can go.
I am not sure if there would be enough interest but thought I would test the water on this. The forum for the project if there is enough interest, would be on this website (with Darryl's permission first of course).
This is the first posting I have made concerning online (except for the i-stirlingengine website) and will serve as a gauge of whether there is enough interest and enthusiam to collaborate online and design a Stirling engine for an application. It may be of course that patents, intellectual property concerns etc might preclude this idea ever starting.
Anyway I thought I would put the idea out there and see if anybody is interested.

The links area of the web-site provides links to other web-sites that we believe will be useful to you as a teacher. Inclusion of links in this section should not be seen as an endorsement of the content of the site, but rather as an indication that it may be valuable for classroom programmes. While every effort is made to ensure that links are active, and their content appropriate, changes to external websites are beyond our control. If you find a broken link, or one which you believe should be removed...

Philips stirling engine technology videos...

Really good explanation about stirling engine processes strait from the Guru's, Philips...
Starts slow, but is really worth the 15 minutes of your time in my opinion.
(there's even a 30hp stirling powered boat)

Animated Engines

Really helpful website for understanding stirling and other type engines.
You can slow stop, reverse and manually rotate engines by using slider bar.
I came across it a couple of years ago and spent much time looking at it and playing with the animations.
It helped me get my head around stirling cycles........ i think?? :mrgreen:

note- to manually rotate engines first press pause and then use slider...
scroll to bottom of page for stirling type engines

check this link... (for theoretical max carnot/caloric engine cycle efficiency) ... arnot.html
this is before anything has even turned and before a multitude of other losses/inefficiencies have been considered.

NASA Stirling Engine Cars "very cool"

Check out this video!!


Its the first video footage of the nasa stirling engine vehicles that i've come across! "YaY"!!

If anyone else has any good video's (or links) to Nasa, Philips, Ford, GM, AMC etc, stirling videos. please put them up..
Every now and then they show up on u tube, but i'm sure there are some realy good vids out there in the void or in someones collection, waiting to be re-discovered.

Parabolic dish, Solar powered Stirling Engines

Here's some stuff I thought may be of interest,

Ever wondered what thousands of stirling engines running together might sound like?

and some more

Has engine components visible on bench towards end of video.

Slow, but gives a good visual pan over the dish and engine

best part starts from about 50 seconds in, and goes for a little bit

buildaroo, interview with sales rep.. worth a watch

Plans and Drawings for Beginners

Being a sort of noob, getting back into Stirlings after decades away, I have spent the past few weeks trawling for reliable plans for a simple first project that is guaranteed to run when all the work is done, providing it is build properly of course. Here are a few of my favourites so far:

Jan Ridders' wonderful site. He will email you one set of plans for free, so choose carefully. ... rzicht.htm

CAD drawings and more. You need WinZip to open many of them, but I downloaded a PDF of the Ky-Ko Stirling Fan plans without it. ... ing+engine

Another version of the Ky-Ko Stirling engine fan by Dr Senft is here: ... iption.pdf
The Ky-Ko is a simple, old fashioned Stirling engine that can be made from common metal stock, no need for graphite pistons and glass tubes etc. It would be simple to turn the Ky-Ko engine on its side, substitute a flywheel for the fan blades and make a nice old fashioned Stirling engine.

Bengs models in Germany. You have to pay for the plans, but not too much. They sell handy material kits too, if you have more money than time to scrounge them up from scrapyards! ... /index.php
