Stirling Engines

A steam engine converts heat to steam and uses steam pressure to drive a piston. An internal combustion engine burns fuel internally and uses the pressure of the expanding gases to drive the piston. A stirling engine is completely different. It uses heat directly to change the volume of air or fluid in the engine and the changing volume makes the engine run.
