Applications of the Stirling Engine in Transport By Farrukh Khan
eBook (PDF): $37.50
The Stirling engine is a closed-cycle external combustion engine which has the ability to deliver engine efficiencies that are greater than those of the internal-combustion engine. Stirling engines... More > are quieter and capable of working on various fuels. However, despite their advantages, the Stirling engine is not without complications. Stirling engine designs are generally more complex and variations in engine power are brought about gradually by altering the pressure of the working fluid and temperature within the engine. Thus, although Stirling engine prototypes have been built for use in automobiles and other transport applications, they are not widely used. However, as fuel prices continue to increase and the world becomes energy reduced, the Stirling engine offers opportunities for innovation. This project report presents an examination of the use of the Stirling engine for transport applications.< Less

Ericsson And Stirling Cycles By Homework Help Classof1
eBook (PDF): $1.99
Significant increases in the thermal efficiency of gas turbine power plants can be achieved through intercooling, reheat, and regeneration. There is an economic limit to the number of stages that can... More > be employed, and normally there would be no more than two or three. Nonetheless, it is instructive to consider the situation where the number of stages of both intercooling and reheat becomes indefinitely large.< Less

This booklet challenges the widespread assumption that domestic wind turbines should generate mains electricity. The proposal is that it would be far easier, and more effective, to use wind turbine... More > energy to generate heat. Generating electricity wastes much of the wind turbine energy. If the turbine is used to drive a heat pump, it is possible to magnify the energy of the turbine.< Less

HHOPP engine By TR NoWry
Paperback: $8.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The HHOPP engine design is a way of building HIGH DISPLACEMENT engines (internal combustion, stirling, and diesel) in incredibly small physical packages. With all other things considered equal,... More > the HHOPP version of the same power and displacement engine will be 1/4 the size or smaller than conventional designs. The core achievement of the HHOPP is dramatic size reduction that drives manufacturing costs down and translates into large weight savings with no loss in power or efficiency.

More > Indies, Child of the Cavern, or Strange Doings Underground. The fortunes of the mining community of Aberfoyle near Stirling, Scotland. Receiving a letter from an old colleague, mining engineer James Starr sets off for the old Aberfoyle mine, thought to have been mined out ten years earlier. Starr finds mine overman Simon Ford and his family living in a cottage deep inside the mine. Mysterious and unexplained happenings start to occur around the main characters, attributed initially to goblins and fire-maidens. Suspicious, Harry continues his explorations of the cavern system, where down a deep shaft, he discovers a young orphan girl named Nell. Over the course of the next few years Nell is adopted by Simon and Madge but reveals nothing of where she came from, only that she had never been out of the mine.< Less
