Was doing an internet article search and decided to put together some links using google books, of some 'old school' science magazine articles regarding Stirling engines. You might need to Scroll up and down bcos sometimes the links don't end up at the right location in the magazines.
Hope at least some of the links entertain most interests.

If anyone comes across other relevant articles feel free to add to the compilation!

I wonder why the free piston stirling airconditioner didn't make it? There are a lot places where natural gas is cheaper than electricity. They use it to heat water and cook with why not cool with? The writer stated it was efficient ,simple and inexpensive. It used Freon and not the stirling cycle.

Amazing no fuel space engine you can build (with plans included...finally)
http://books.google.com.au/books?id=KyY ... ld&f=false

The above article is an add on and follows a previous Stirling article in the same mag, but one of the blueprint plan pages was unreadable.

So after some prolonged investigations (I can be stubborn sometimes), I was able to track down an image of the lost blueprint page..

this lead to another article..


Hot air engine runs quietly and cleanly.
(was not able to use google books for this one)
(from 'Mechanix Illustrated', October 1971)



I can't find page 69 and 70 (I think they might have some good pictures (or maybe they're just adds)) my stubbornness eventually ran out on this investigation. So hopefully someone else can track them down (cos I don't want to buy the mag to check)..

No worries Mario,
I enjoyed reading them myself, so thought others would too. Kind of got sucked into some other articles as I read on (damn those science mags).
I wish more sciency type magazines would allow Google books to display full views.
'Popular Science' magazines are open for full viewing from its very first issue in may 1872 to March 2009 (at least this is the last issue I’m aware of) which is very decent of them to allow in my opinion (over 135 years of science history), I’m now an even bigger fan of their magazine. Hopefully they might allow more issues in the future.

Here are a few more Stirling engine articles I came across, they're not as chunky as previous ones, but still qualify for a read..

Here are a group of articles about Stirling engines from 'New Scientist' (i didn't realise this mag was open for full viewing, from first issue in1956, up untill dec 1989, again i hope they allow more issues in the future).
Some are about Stirling engines while other articles may just mention their particular function within a more complicated device, or are just somehow abstractly connected to 'Hot air stuff'.

I liked this article, Its about the perpetual argument regarding the difference between the art of knowing, and the art of doing..

Those who Can,- Do.
Those who can't,- Teach.
Those who can't do either,- Teach Teachers.

Here are some handy index sites for tracking down articles in different Model oriented Magazines.

Model Engineer Magazine - Database and Index of Published Articles
http://www.itech.net.au/modelengineer/

Engineering in Miniature Magazine - Database and Index of Published Articles
http://www.itech.net.au/modelengineer/EIM_Magazine.aspx

Model Engineer Workshop Magazine - Database and Index of Published Articles
http://www.itech.net.au/modelengineer/MEW_magazine.aspx

For example, type in 'Stirling engine' into the search function and see what you get..
I'm not sure how comprehensive the database is, but maybe somebody that is familiar with the magazines would be able to give it a run to test its content.. :question)

There is an index for Model Engineer, go to google, enter model engineer index, when your in, enter stirling and hot air engines, you'll get results from the early 1900s through till a year or two ago. You can sometimes pick up the magazines on the net. There are probably more engines in Engineering in Miniature, and I think the index for that is on the same site as ME, and MEW. Ian S C
