Thermoacoustics in Solids

by Jeff Hopkins, on 7/23/18 11:03 AM

Heat and sound wave interactions could run engines

New research by Purdue University scientists on solids as media for heat and sound wave interactions—just like a fluid does for thermoacoustic engines—has got us thinking.

Theoretically, this means not only leak-free machines that can operate longer, but also machines able to operate in extreme temperatures. Researchers envision one day applying this to energy generation for satellites. Could it help in semiconducting or power generation, too?
