A resonant heat engine in which the piston assembly is replaced by a sealed elastic cavity is modeled and analyzed. A linearized nondimensional lumped-parameter model is derived and used to investigate the factors that control the performance of the engine. The results show that operation at resonance is beneficial. Local maxima in efficiency are encountered at odd multiples of the resonance frequency. Efficiency is enhanced by small damping.
