INITIAL COMPARISON OF SINGLE CYLINDER STIRLING ENGINE COMPUTER MODEL PREDICTIONS WITH TEST RESULTS
A Stirling engine digital computer model, developed at NASA Lewis Research Center, was configured to predict the performance of the GPU-3 single-cylinder rhombic drive engine. Revisions to the basic equations and assumptions are discussed. Model predictions with the early results of the Lewis Research Center GPU-3 tests are compared.
