Heat Transfer Analysis

Any suggestions on books or literature doing a heat transfer
analysis in a Stirling engine? Especially from the hot source to
the working gas.

Heat Transfer Analysis

Postby stan.hornbaker » Fri May 01, 2009 6:58 pm

Heat transfer analysis of any system is the summation of all of the factors involved in crossing the barriers from the heat source to the fluid (gas in the case of a Stirling engine) to be heated to a given temperature. This includes the metal physical barrier and the film factors and any other impediments to heat flow.

A free electronic college level text book on heat transfer is described at
