Here are some search links from 'google books' for books with stirling/hot air engine content..
All the results will give you full access to the books, and can be read from beginning to end. Most of them can be downloaded as Ebooks, many for free and some to buy, but no need to buy as you can read them online using the google books link :cool:.

Some of the search parameters used-- exact phrase, full view only, books, 100 results

"stirling engine"
https://www.google.com/search?tbo=p&tbm ... :b&num=100

"hot air engine"
https://www.google.com/search?tbo=p&tbm ... :b&num=100

"caloric engine"
https://www.google.com/search?tbo=p&tbm ... :b&num=100

philips "stirling engine"
https://www.google.com/search?tbo=p&tbm ... :b&num=100

There are some really interesting extracts to be read (too many for me at the moment)
There are plenty of useless links also..Image

If your familiar with the advanced search options for google then you may have done similar searches for these types of books.
But if not, then have a look at all the cool stuff for advanced searches within google (and other search engines)
I've used lots of different tactics to find the magazine (book) articles, since i began this topic.

This is the 'advanced book search' page..

But there are so many different ways to find stuff

80 Years of Research at the Philips Natuurkundig Laboratorium (1914-1994): The Role of the Nat.Lab. at Philips

For anyone interested in the Philips Stirling research this is an extremely worthwhile read, and although its stated as only a google books preview,
it is fairly comprehensive and seems to contain most of the significant information from within the book regarding Stirling engines (section 6.1) minus a few images...
It's more an overview of the Stirling's evolution at Philips than it is a technical explanation of the engine.
There's about 12 pages on their stirling engine research.. Image enjoy..

This site shows you how to build a poor man's dynamic balancer for anything you should need to balance. Having a engine out of balance can really can rob you of potential power output, so here's the link. http://www.antiqueautoranch.com/montana ... page4.html

This is a link to NASA's "Stirling Engine Design Manual" PDF file. Worth a read for anyone who wants to understand stirling engines. What works and what doesn't.

This is a link to a "amateur work" vintage magazine on the construction of a hot air engine with 2.5 inch diameter pistons. The blueprint is shown as well with dimensions in inches. The title is "a hot air engine", and is worth a look.

found a $120 dynamic balancer. uses stroboscopic method of balancing and uses an accelerometer to detect vibration and phase detection.

Hello to all! My friends and I make small batches of physical toys. Including we have several working models of the Stirling engine, different types and working assembly drawings of 8 models of Stirling engines. Our products and drawings can be viewed on ETSY.
Shop: PhysicsToysKit
The range of products and drawings in the stage of filling.
If you have any questions about our models of Stirling engines or drawings - ask on the forum.
