Ibrahim Department of Mechanical Engineering Cleveland State University Cleveland, Ohio ABSTRACT A two-dimensional oscillating flow analysis was conducted, simulating the gas flow inside Stirling heat exchangers. Both laminar and turbulent oscillating pipe flow were investigated numerically for Re(max) = (Va = 80), (Va = ), (Va = ), and (Va = ).

A high performance model Stirling engine, in which the heater, regenerator and cooler as a whole is formed by hundreds of porous metal sheets, is identified for theoretical analysis to facilitate the future scale-up design.

The reciprocating flow and heat transfer both in the heat exchanger and in the full engine is simulated by a dynamic mesh Computational Free-Piston Stirling Engines (FPSEs) have recently attracted attention as a promising energy conversion technology because of their desirable characteristics such as high efficiency, high reliability, and easy and quiet operation.

FPSE are truly a closed cycle system that works using variations in the internal pressure to drive the power piston that is connected to the reciprocating magnets in /free-piston-stirling-engine-generators.

A reciprocating engine, also often known as a piston engine, is typically a heat engine (although there are also pneumatic and hydraulic reciprocating engines) that uses one or more reciprocating pistons to convert pressure into a rotating article describes the common features of all types.

The main types are: the internal combustion engine, used extensively in motor   @article{osti_, title = {Resonator coiling in thermoacoustic engines}, author = {Olson, J R and Swift, G W}, abstractNote = {Coiling the resonator of a thermoacoustic engine is one way to try to minimize the engine`s size.

Heat is transferred from the external heat source to the working fluid in the heater section, cyclicly stored and recovered in the regenerator, and rejected by the working fluid to the external heat sink in the cooler ://.
