Abstract:

This invention for the production of high amplitude acoustic standing waves, which can be used for thermoacoustic heat transport purposes, describes the use of a rigid barrier in place of a piston, thereby allowing the suspension of the resonator to be external to the pressurized resonator and allowing an independent choice of motor mechanism. including the use of rotary motors instead of linear motors, while incidentally providing a mechanism for circulating external heat transport fluids without requiring additional pumps or heat pipes.
