CFD - Alpha Stirling Engine

Post by gui_amuchastegui » Mon Jul 09, 2018 12:29 pm

Hello,

Does anyone has experience on CFD simulation of an alpha stirling engine?
I am trying to simulate the engine using Fluent software from Ansys, but I am struggling with some topics:

- How to simulate a closed loop system?
- How to consider the change in the volume of the piston?

Best regards,

José Guilherme
