The Stirling Engine for Underwater Vehicle Applications 690731

High efficiency, low noise level, and the ability to utilize unconventional energy sources make the Stirling engine a unique candidate for underwater applications. Basic descriptions of some current Stirling engines are presented along with complete maps of performance data and other facts related to their underwater use with closed energy sources. Performance characteristics are predicted for power-plant systems combining Stirling engines with heat-storage and metal-combustion energy sources.
