    Engines featuring such propellers are called propfans. Picture of turboprop engine. Turbofans. A turbofan engine has a large fan at the front, which sucks in air. Most of the air flows around the outside of the engine, making it quieter and giving more thrust at low speeds. Most . In , something wholly unexpected happened at what was then the NASA Lewis (now Glenn) Research Center—a “new” aircraft icing program was started. The story goes something like this: Milt Beheim, chief of the Wind Tunnel and Flight Division, was put in charge of the nearly defunct Icing Research Tunnel (IRT). It was in a state of.

The first generation of hardware in the Large Free-Piston Stirling Engine ( kW per cylinder) program, shown above, was the Space Power Demonstrator Engine (SPDE). The SPDE was a free-piston Stirling engine coupled to a linear alternator. It was a double cylinder, opposed-piston convertor designed to produce 25 kWe at 25% overall efficiency.

The Advanced Stirling Convertor (ASC) is being developed by Sunpower, Inc. for NASA’s Glenn Research Center (GRC) with critical technology support tasks led by GRC. The goal of the ASC project, which is funded by NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, is to develop a highly efficient, low mass, reliable power convertor for future Radioisotope Power Systems (RPS).

This effort is keyed on the design, fabrication, assembly, and testing of a 25 kWe Stirling space-power technology-feasibility demonstrator engine. Another facet of the SP project covers the. This banner text can have markup. web; books; video; audio; software; images; Toggle navigation.

Introduction. As part of the NASA funded portion of the SP Advanced Technology Program the Space Power Research Engine (SPRE I) was designed and built, on contract by Mechanical Technology Inc.

(MTI), to serve as a research tool for the evaluation and devel- opment of advanced Stirling engine concepts. Stirling Technology Company (STC), Kennewick, Washington, designed a line of cryocoolers under Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts with Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC).

Stirling engine technology is rooted in the creative tinkering of Scottish brothers, Robert and James Stirling. The Stirling Research Lab (SRL) is a facility for extended operation and performance testing of Stirling convertors. Testing can be performed in air or in a thermal vacuum chamber.

The purpose of this testing is to provide Independent Verification and Validation of free-piston Stirling convertor and generator system operation. An overview of the (NASA) Lewis Research Center free-piston Stirling engine activities in support of the SP Program is presented.

Stirling engines work best when the working gas is as light as possible and under high pressure, so as to maximize its thermal conductivity. As your link says, that engine uses Hydrogen, the lightest gas, at pressures in the range of psi, or about atmospheres.

NASA is said to be the forerunner of the newest invented technologies, even before the military puts an eye on them (or sometimes the second to use them).

Still, some NASA officials have decided to use an old technology, such as the Stirling engine, to generate electricity on Author: Ovidiu Sandru.

The Stirling engine (or Stirling's air engine as it was known at the time) was invented and patented in It followed earlier attempts at making an air engine but was probably the first put to practical use when, inan engine built by Stirling was employed pumping water in a quarry.

The main subject of Stirling's original patent was a heat exchanger, which he called an "economiser. Nasa type free piston stirling engine.

Innovation Research (SBIR) contracts with Ohio-based Sunpower, Inc. in partnership with NASA’s Glenn Research Center has resulted in the Advanced Stirling Convertor (ASC), an 80 watt free-piston Stirling power convertor that produces electric power from any source of heat.

The ASC can be used in any application that requires conversion of. DOE/NASA/ NASA CR Stirling Engine Design Manual Second Support for the generation of this report was provided by a grant from the Lewis Research Center Stirling Engine. A novel active free piston Stirling engine is modeled, fabricated, and tested.

A dynamic model of the engine is presented and experimentally validated. A systematic way to find gas temperature within the hot and cold spaces is by:. The Aircraft Engine Research Laboratory, originally numbered aswas built in to study ways to increase the power and efficiency of aircraft building consisted of three dynamometer rooms, two fuel-spray research rooms, and a two-stroke-cycle test bed.

The site had previously been occupied by the two Power Plant : Langley Research Center.The stirling engine is perhaps the simplest form of engine. The engine, then called the economiser, was first developed and patented by Rev. Robert Stirling in Edinburgh, Scotland in Robert Stirling not only developed and built heat engines, but was also a reverend in the Church of Scotland.

The National Academy report said that the method NASA uses now is only about 6 percent efficient. A Stirling Engine system could produce five times as much electricity from each unit of heat, reducing the need for plutonium, but it has many moving parts and .
