    Hi everybody!
    I am presently translating into english a document relating to the use of a solar unit.
    l'énergie solaire peut être transformée en énergie mécanique, par le biais d'un moteur à apport de chaleur externe

    "Solar energy can be turned into mechanical energy through a hot air engine"

    Does anyone know another term than "hot air engine" ?

    Merci d'avance.

    ?? I would like to use the exact technical term. The usual engine every one knows iscalled in French moteur à combustion interne. And there are also moteurs à combustion externe. This the term I'm looking for.
    Merci Bonjourmonamour (I love that name!)
