Hey, failure is how we discover what does NOT work...equally important to finding what DOES work.

If I made a Youtube video of my failures, it would be way too large a file to upload.

Yes I have seen all of those! Very cool stuff...the first one is ok. Anyway I think I am gonna play with a laminar flow sterling for power gen. I ordered a piston and cylinder from airpot.com. Cant wait to see what comes of it.

Looks like some really nice cylinders  at that site.
I have never heard  of a laminar flow sterling.
Can you tell me a  little more about it?

I can't imagine  how you would  make  a sterling with just one cylinder .......unless  you are using it for the smaller piston  on  a displacment type stering

Gary,
See here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-d8TGYanAtk

I am actually engineering this to be sold as a kit I think... Cuz i cant find one for less than $99... lol

These are really cool. Not sure it is truly laminar flow...maybe more of a heat engine... Some call it thermoacoustic...

Thermocaustic is  something I have never heard of before......It makes  sense though.
I was trying  to see how  it could be a sterling but not  understanding it.
To me the name thermocaustic  seems to be seems to be saying that  something is being  burnt  .....
If it is burning something....that something will have to be replaced.

If I was  you  I would go with a simple  sterling..........burning anything is a dirty process......... a sterling  would run  clean for its entire life.

Do  you understand how  sterlings work?
If  you don't I can  explain it ....... at first  they are hard to understand........but they are probably  the most simple most elegant engine ever made.

Do  you have the resources to have some parts made up?

Most of my background is with simple machines.......I know nothing  about electronics.,,,,,,,except  what I have learned on this thread.

Gary thank you! I am very clear on the stirling process... and in fact I believe that a laminar flow is a stirling process... the two cylinders hot\cold are inline but the single piston actuates both airflows...

When the piston draws out warm air flows the cool side to be cooled, when then it gets compressed back to the hot side to be warmed back up... this is a true stirling cycle in its most basic form IMO.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong...

I do not have resources the aluminum spec'd parts, however once I get the CAD done I will forward you the specs... I am more than happy to pay someone here for the cnc stuff. Nothing would make me happier...

I will also be learning some more about electronics... as I will need a circuit board engineered as well... If you can think of someone... point them here!!! :)

Thanks!
