Abstract

Experiments were conducted on a reconstructed thermoacoustic refrigerator. The construction utilized the design and various reusable components from a previous major qualifying project. In addition, different materials were used as well as different methods with which to test the thermoacoustic effect. The effect was not observed due to failures in construction; and, the analysis of findings also put the previous project's conclusion of observing a thermoacoustic effect as well as the overall design into question.
