      What's the point?
      The problem that IC engines face today is not their rotational assembly, it's in the fuel used and the combustion process.


      One thing that I see that's interesting is that the seals around the moving "piston" on this work like brushes in an electric motor. They wouldn't loose compression due to wear like rings do in a typical piston engine. It looks like a spring would keep constant pressure on them, and when the wearable part got low, it could be removed without taking the engine apart. The design might also reduce the friction caused by the rings for a given displacement, but it's hard to tell.
      It's an interesting design exercise, even if it doesn't have a practical application IMO.

      Half rotate engine

      Spying the crank rotation, it looks like the half-rotate engine is rotating 45º max making it more like an eighth-rotate engine.

      Aren't Newton's three laws enough to say no?

      The Little Horse Power Meter has my vote. If it actually does tongues in engines manner of measurement of amount of mechanical horse, then I definitely want one. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      It is sure true.
      Se in http://www.epi-eng.com/piston_...e.htm

      POWER is the measure of how much WORK can be done in a specified TIME. ......."
      At same WORK
      Need gauge TIME....

      I am only inventor, maybe anybody made it.....

      I figured it was an electrical motor by the diagrams. different.

      Finally, the answer to the question, How can I have more apex seals?

      On one of aerial forum, describing my horse power meter, it re-wrapped in discussion for transmit force for transmission in helicopters theme limitation , very often.
      I read this forum and , I has been orientated , that transmission is critical element in helicopter most
      Sometimes. at creation of new invention, inspiration takes place at I safety of user most important
      There is so and this time.
      Understand how as critical thing beginning, try to omit she completely.
      My constructions for carrying half- rotary engine directly try to joint impeller of helicopter, with out any transmission. In order to get low turns properly, I must use engine about outsized jumping capacity, and low rpm. My half -rotate engine, is accuracy, and size are reasonable.
      Second ,safety important , are diesel fuel in this low rpm engine. Summary I increase safety twice.
      It try to make similar to main parameters " " Chinook”.

      Principle of operation half-rotate engine

      Air cooling " piston"

      And neither one cogged circle
      Regards Andrew

      And again neither one cogged circle

      interesting thinking, but i cant think of an application for it that a standard reciprocating engine cant equal or excell in

      With "cylinder" and popped...


      Regards Andrew

      ok good... this is what i thought was going on but i wasn't sure till you posted this picture.

      I can see this working so long as there is another couple of these to help cancel out the vibration... think it would also work better and better the smaller and lighter it could be.

      You cant just come up with a half baked engine idea and think its going to work. Especially your last one. Wouldn't that be a 16 "cylinder"? All those valves open at different times, yet the "pistons" are all in time. Also, what seals the "chamber" for each combustion chamber? What turns the cam shaft? I also like the water cooling with the flexible hose. So I guess you just fill up the "Piston" with water? Just to put more stress on that rod arm with even more dynamic weight? Go back to the drawing board.

      Lack of imagination ?
      What turns the cam shaft? - same traditional.
      Go back to prewiev old design.

      Are You know engine named Twin Feliks ?


      Mutations "Long Cylinder" and 8 piston valve in one "cylinder"

      Please help: what right name of area "cylinder" ??

      Largest in the World project engine .
      This name: MULTIBOXER - its radial engine in horizontal position.
      Tis is first cross head radial engine.
      If made please using components Wartsila-Sulzer RTA96-C piston, cross head ,rod:
      Engine 14 cylinders have 108,920 hp at 102 rpm .
      My project engine have 45 cylinders end power ~~ 350. 000 hp
      Tis is better ,so nuclear reactor in aircraft carrier ship.

      I guess some bright individual using babelfish to express the direct probably injection mas work engine best.
      Not a good combination

      Last time I do not like something very cogged transmissions too.
      My horizontal engine need angle transmission.
      Its my project crossheads 90 deg angle transmission:

      Ma by twin crossheads angle replace old "differential"
