Stirling Engine of Saitama University

The Dynamics of Machinery Laboratory (Prof. Iwamoto) at Saitama University had studyed and developed the Stirling engines till March 1998. Here is a web site which was made by Iwamoto's students in these days.

Building of Model Stirling Engine

Students of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Saitama University have a class named Mechanical Engineering Seminar. Our laboratory adopted the subject to 'Building of Model Stirling Engine' from September 1997 to January 1998.

Schmidt Theory for Stirling Engines

This is a famous thermodynamical theory for Stirling engines.
