• A shot in the cold: a new open regenerative cycle for heat-pumps and refrigerators

      Haywood, D; Gschwendtner, MA (University of Rome “La Sapienza”, International Stirling Engine Conference (ISEC), 2003)
      Although Stirling heat-pumps and refrigerators offer the possibility of environmentally-friendly operation by using air as the refrigerant, the Coefficient of Performance (COP) of low-cost Stirling systems is only about ...
    • Investigation of seal performance in a 4-α double-acting Stirling cycle heat-pump/refrigerator

      Haywood, D; Raine, JK; Gschwendtner, MA (International Stirling Engine, Universita de Roma, 2001)
      Concerns about the environmental impact of refrigerants used in vapour-compression heatpumps and refrigerators, have prompted the Stirling-Cycle Research Group at the University of Canterbury to investigate the feasibility ...
    • Some insights into Stirling machine behaviour

      Tucker, AS; Gschwendtner, MA; Haywood, D (Georgia Institute of Technology, ICC Press, 2010)
      Through its involvement in the analysis, design and development of both Stirling engines and refrigerating applications, the Stirling Cycle Research Group at the University of Canterbury has, over several years, encountered ...
