This thesis describes a Matlab computer program that implements Arnotts formulation of thermoacoustics W.P. Arnott , et al, General formulation of thermoacoustics for stacks having arbitrarily shaped pore cross sections , J. Acoustic. Soc. Am. 90 6, 3228-3237 1991. The program calculates the resonance frequency and quality factor of a thermoacoustic prime mover below onset of self-oscillation. The results of this analysis are compared to measured values for both a closed end and an open end prime mover and to predictions of a standing wave analysis of prime movers A.A Atchley, Standing wave analysis of a thermoacoustic prime mover below onset of self-oscillation, J. Acoustic. Soc. Am. 925, 2907-2914 1992.
