DIESEL-STIRLING COMBINATION MAY IMPROVE EFFICIENCY

As economic, environmental, and other forces continue to influence automotive design, attention focuses on the diesel engine with its minimal fuel usage at and near idle. One diesel specialist expects improved injector designs to couple with silicon-based materials in advancing a small adiabatic engine with reduced emissions. Absence of many cooling-related devices and higher exhaust gas temperatures may make higher efficiencies possible through exhaust-heated Stirling engine applications, downstream.
