Stirling Engine Design

  1. Sep 4, 2012 #1
    I am thinking of building a Stirling engine and am debating between a gamma type and beta type. Any advice on which type I should go for, and what the advantages/disadvantages to each is?

    Best practise is to look at how other people have been building them and working out which design matches your available materials and expertise.

    You will be building several before you get one working.
