This text presents the results of research from which the Ringbom Stirling engine has emerged as a multipurpose motor capable of high-speed stable operation. It deals with the fundamental theory of the Ringbom, which is heated externally and which internally carries a fixed quantity of air through a closed cycle of heating, expansion, cooling and compression. The engine is the subject of much current interest because of its technical elegance, its quiet and clean operation, and its potential in the field of alternative energy sources. The book illustrates theoretical results, engine characteristics and design principles using data from actual Ringbom engines. Extensive descriptions of engine hardware are included to aid those interested in their construction. Mechanical, electrical and chemical engineers concerned with power systems, power generation, energy conservation, solar energy and low-temperature physics will find this monograph a comprehensive introduction to Stirling Ringbom engine technology.show more
