DescriptionThis project is a Stirling engine, inline 4-cylinder. It’s not an existing model, but one that I’ve created. Wooded base with bronzed slab cover, aluminum bloc and cylinders, titanium rods, silicon and PTFE gaskets, other main components are made in glass, iron and stainless steel. It’s a small model, anti-clockwise rotation output (pulley), powered by four oil candles. It includes an oil cooled crankshaft, thanks to an oil gear pump. Finally, all fasteners are standard ISO taken in McMaster-Carr library. The principle is based on retrieving energy by moving heat from one ‘hot source’ to another colder one. It transforms a part of the energy coming from the ‘hot source’ into mechanical energy. Here the ‘hot source’ are the 4 oil candles. The whole project was designed using only Fusion 360 as part of the “Design for Autodesk Fusion 360 challenge”.
