Stirling engine is an external combustion engine, a heat engine is theoretically the most efficient way possible.
It was perfected by the Scottish minister Robert Stirling in 1816, aided by his brother engineer. They were intended to replace the steam engine, with which the stirling engine has great theoretical and structural similarity. In the early nineteenth century, the steam exploded too often, due to the poor metallurgical technology of boilers, which were broken when subjected to high pressure.
Sensitized to the pain of the families of workers killed in accidents, the Stirling brothers seeking to devise a more secure mechanism. It is also referred to as hot air engine, used by the atmospheric gases as the working fluid.
Searching the operation of Stirling engines, I decided to make my garage of my house.
It took almost 30 days of work and finally came time to fuel the machine ..... doubt? Will it work? RAN and is there to be seen by everyone.
