A COMPUTER AND EXPERIMENTAL SIMULATION OF STIRLING CYCLE MACHINES

The computer simulation of Stirling cycle machines developed by Urieli is evaluated against experimental results and ideal analyses. The experimental results were obtained from a rig which was designed to simulate the thermodynamic conditions present in real machines. For this particular rig the simulation consistently underpredicts the overall heat energy reguirements by approximately 13%. The ideal analyses used in the comparison are the Schmidt analysis and a form of second order ideal pseudo-Stirling analysis (Finkelstein's adiabatic analysis.) The complete mathematical derivations of the relevant equations are not reported, these are available in the references cited. /SAE/
