We report test results on a thermoacoustic engine having a piston-crank-flywheel assembly. The engine maintained steady rotation states when the heating temperature was increased more than 114°C. The rotation frequency increased with the higher heating temperature and reached 14.5 Hz when it was 296°C. The pressure versus volume diagram was created to deduce the power delivered to the piston-crank-flywheel assembly from measurements of the pressure of the working gas and the rotation angle of the flywheel.
