Sterling engines may very well be the missing link in our modern day attempt to use viable green technology. First created in the 19th century, Sterling Engines at one time out performed combustible engines in efficiency as well as safety. The Sterling was discarded when the industrial revolution took hold. These engines are now making a great comeback ... And in a big way!

Abstract
 An alpha-type Liquid Piston Stirling engine with a maximum power output of 23W and an efficiency of 3.4% was designed, built and instrumented for demonstration purposes. Based on in-depth research and design optimization, engine parameters weredetermined and a particular design was drafted. All the engine parts were manufacturedin the Engineering Department’s machine shop. The design was modified followinginitial testing and modified to improve performance. During the final two weeks of the project different sensor types were added to enable real-time data collection and processing. Furthermore, sufficient data was taken to characterize the fluidyne system.There is still a lot of work to be done in order to realize our initial project goals and it isour hope that the engine will be improved upon extensively in the coming years.2
 
 Acknowledgements
We owe Professor Carr Everbach a great deal of gratitude for his expertise, supportand advice during the entire process but more especially during the initial stages of the project in getting us onto the right track. Secondly, we would like to thank Mr.Grant Smith ‘Smitty’ for his help in machining several system components, inordering several system parts and directing us when it came to using the machines inthe departmental shop. Professor Fred Orthlieb was also very invaluable in movingthe project forward and his help in machining some of the system pieces when Smittywas away is very much appreciated. To our E14 students, Paul Agyiri ’07 and Lauren’07, we say thank you for testing the regenerative materials in order suggest what the best material is for the purposes of our project. Finally to our peers, engineeringfaculty members and friends who kept pushing us on, we say thank you.3
