Learning Goal: I’m working on a mechanical engineering project and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
I need some help modelling a Stirling engine cylinder with multiple surfaces to compare how each surface effects the efficiency of the engine. The simulation needs to be done on Ansys with 4 surfaces in total being flat, finned, pinned, and annular. The simulation must include the effects of convection and radiation. Below is a sample attached of a flat surface.
