Example text

A diagrammatic distorted section through this and similar later engines built by Stirling is, therefore, shown in Fig. 4, in which an attempt was made to reconstruct the linkage that was probably used in these engines, and in which the layout of the cylinders and the working spaces is clearly shown. Between 1824 and 1840 several improvements and modifications were made by the Stirling brothers to their earlier designs, and further patents were registered in their joint names in 1827 and 1840 (Nos 5456 and 8652).

He built a large number of experimental engines and, in due course, evolved two basic designs. 12 Air Engines John Ericsson was born in Vermeland, Sweden, but spent most of his professional life in England and America. He became famous for his many inventions and innovations in connection with locomotives, steam fire engines, screw propellers, ships, torpedoes, etc. His first vessel of the Monitor series was the forerunner of all later iron-clad turreted warships with machinery below the waterline.

And it was still doing duty on a lightship after 30 years’ service – an early demonstration of the long life and reliability of air engines (Shaw 1880, Matschoss 1925). 1 The invention In open-cycle engines mechanical work is performed by a quantity of working fluid which is made to undergo successively certain operations, such as induction, compression, heating, expansion, and exhaust. On the other hand, in closed-cycle engines these phases merge into each other, and while part of the working fluid may be heated in one part of the engine, in another part it may simultaneously be cooled.
