Simplest Engine Revealed

by Julius C. Siador
Who wants a much wider free space to explore? In parallel thought, a kid may straightforwardly ask: “Can I fly real close to the sun?” We watched migrating birds crossed boundaries, yet we often join in with old folks kidding on gullible kindergartners with folklore like Daedalus myth, then scoff at the innate child in us.
Well, not everyone really since, at least, I am one visionary of a personal satiating flight with jet packs, surpassing the raven’s agility! Will you join in with me to this unique “Mission Impossible: Nevermore”? Do you wish to appreciate such science and technology behind? “Only this and nothing more.” I reckon your fanciful thoughts as my dear pupils on this seemingly fanciful ultimate quest of man—although insignificant to the moment when those who wait on the Lord will find new strength, will fly high on wings like eagles, will run and not grow weary, will walk and not faint…

What is this personal jet-powered prolonged flight? Wasn’t Buck Rogers already worn out from enjoying that? Will it be just reinventing if you try to build such craft? Or, is there anything wanting yet? Well, definitely, there is, and more!—for one, the lack of enough duration to appreciate the freedom of flight exploration: that kid stuff for real acrobats. Now, follow me to reinvent “that cuttlefish” to adapt our thin atmosphere!

What were those props strapped on jet plane’s wings? Can we remodel that and strap ourselves to such? Well, that is impractical, unless I share you some secrets. Letting it be very lightweight and powerful was already exhausted long before. But, letting it be extremely efficient and cheap is the defining key not revealed by everyone. Well, not everyone really since, at least, I am one engineer who delve into our future, then willingly unveil the key design to do such requisite. Would you be, as disciples, eager to learn the pioneering craft? Do you wish to be great engineers for a moment if you are truly enthusiasts? “Merely this and nothing more.” I reckon your burning hearts as my dear apprentices on this seemingly whimsical engine propulsion of the future—although found wanting in comparison to the majestic wings of a cunning owl.

Dear friends, that craft must have a ROTARY ENGINE. Oops, not that gas-turbine/jet engine! It’s neither a rotating-cylinders engine, nor a rocket engine. How about Wankel of Mazda? Well, the brainchild of Felix Wankel that was simply derived from John Cooley’s engine is so brilliant for aeronautics, but far from being near enough—even its appropriately hyped futuristic Mazda RX-8 Renesis Ceramic Hydrogen Engine I will render obsolete later. Too bizarre to most engineers, I even propose that it is of Diesel Cycle… Expert aeronautical engineers who know Bryton Cycle too well would surely dismiss me at this time, if I cut this article short. So, are you in for a wonderful illumination? Seize a memorable moment to cherish your modern car from now on: You may bid it farewell too soon for a momentous event later on.

Watch closely the piston rings against the Wankel apex seals. Much difference is in the manner of contact. So, Wankel surely fails to contain the high-pressure gas (and waste precious power miserably), therefore it cannot utilize a very cheap, bio-diesel fuel oil, or grandma’s used cooking oil. So, is there any alternative design that is simpler by far than Wankel yet powerful by far than jet engine, and economical by far than diesel engine? Without further ado, I have—and it is ALL FREE: no patent infringements to fear upon. Take a feature peek at the series of prime pictures above and the animation of its kinematics in the video.

Interesting. I've bookmarked your blog for future reference.

Does this engine require standard diesel oil?.
