Development of CFD Model for Stirling Engine and its Components
Proceedings of the 2nd International Energy Conversion Engineering Conference
This paper presents the results of the development of a Stirling Engine CFD mode. The CFD-ACE commercial code was used in the simulation study. A 2D Stirling engine model which includes the expansion space, heater, regenerator, coder, simplified "spider" and compression space was studied...The simulation of this Stirling engine showed that with the increasing of the computer power and improved model, the CFD simulation of Stirling engines will become easier and more realistic.
