what are the materials needed in making stirling cycle based engine? Answered



A laminar stirling engine is the simplest design

It uses:
-a test tube
-a stand
-a steel-wool/pot scourer for heatsink
-a graphite piston (very low drag). This might be very hard to aquire. You might need to machine one to fit your test-tube
-a connecting rod
-a flywheel assembly

Theres a bajillion of these on youtube.
