The Regenerator and the Stirling Engine examines the basic scientific and engineering principles of the Regenerator and the Stirling engine. Drawing upon his own research and collaboration with engine developers, Allan J Organ offers solutions to many of the problems which have prevented these engines operating at the levels of efficiency of which they are theoretically capable. The Regenerator and the Stirling Engine offers practising engineers and designers specific guidelines for building in optimum thermodynamic performance at the design stage.COMPLETE CONTENTS:Bridging the gapThe Stirling cycleHeat transfer and the priceSimilarity and scaling; Energetic similarityIn support of similarityHausen revisedConnectivity and thermal shortingReal particle trajectories natural co-ordinatesThe Stirling regeneratorThe Ritz rotary regeneratorCompressibility effectsRegenerator flow impedanceComplex admittance experimental corroborationSteady-flow CfNre correlations inferred from linear-wave analysisOptimization Part I: without the computerOptimization Part II: cyclic steady stateElements of combustionDesign studyHobbyhorseOriginsAppendices
