Computational techniques for the twodimensional gasdynamic equations in Stirling engine regenerators and associated manifolds
Abstract
A mathematical model has been developed for analysis of multidimensional gas flow in Stirling cycle machines. The twodimensional gasdynamic equations which apply to flow through a porous matrix are derived and set up into an initialvalue problem modeling a Stirling cycle regenerator and associated manifolds. A solution method based on finitedifference techniques is outlined.
