Abstract

A thermoacoustic refrigerator was designed, built and tested. A maximum normalized temperature difference of 7.564 K was recorded across the stack. Heat generated by the resistance in the speaker affected the results. Despite these effects, much of the temperature difference recorded was determined to be due to thermoacoustic refrigeration.
