This thesis demonstrates an attempt to make a design of an about 1-meter-long thermoacoustic heat engine that has an optimum efficiency. This will be done using DeltaEC, software which was developed especially for low amplitude thermoacoustic devices modeling. The optimization process includes geometrical parameters of the resonator tube and the stack, the working fluid, and the heat input to the engine. The present optimization process has shown that slab stacks made of Celcor (a Ceramicdoi:10.2514/6.2011-5803 fatcat:slmxr5yfi5bfndijvczspa3ml4
