Synopses & Reviews
Hot air engines, often called Stirling engines, are among the most interesting and intriguing engines ever to be designed. They run on just about any fuel, from salad oil and hydrogen to solar and geothermal energy. They produce a rotary motion that can be used to power anything, from boats and buggies to fridges and fans. This book demonstrates how to design, build, and optimise Stirling engines. A broad selection of Roys engines is described, giving a valuable insight into the many different types and a great deal of information relating to the home manufacture of these engines is included in the workshop section.
An essential reference to engineers and hobbyists and an insight into designing and building hot air engines.
