New Planar Spring

A project log for Advanced Stirling Radioisotope Generator

NASA cancelled this program in 2013 after spending USD260 Million. Lets see what we can do for USD260!.

Our first attempt at a planar spring resulted in a bent & warped effort.

The new spring is fabricated using a water cutter from CS80 hardened & tempered spring steel strip, 1mm thick. On the Rockwell scale, the material is rated 42/44

As can be seen in the pics, the new spring is completely flat.

Next, we will fix the issue of free movement of the displacer & post a video..
