Design and analysis of a thermoacoustic heat engine

Contributor(s): Henry Griscti, ...[et.al]Material type: TextTextOnline resources: Click here to access online In: Acoustics 205 Hunter Valley 15-18 November 2015Abstract: Thermoacoustic heat engines (TAEs) are a well-established technology, however practical applications are limited. TAE's operate when a temperature gradient is applied that causes acoustic oscillations. This paper presents a tutorial on how to design and build a TAE. Focus is given to the design process and analysis of the TAEs performance in order to describe how it was developed and provide a standard to which future TAE's can be assessed.
