    interesting, but still under development.

    this wouldn't be the first time a supposed 100mpg tech went "poof".
     
  6. i have been hearing about this design for quite a long time now, i probably first heard about this 5 or 6 years ago, or maybe longer. it sounds very interesting.

    hence my skepticism but... the math kinda makes sense.

    not that i can do maths

    i didn't know that til you mentioned, its odd how this kinda stuff doesnt get near as much attention as other stuff. i'd just heard of this recently, i think this is even newer tech.
    crazy gearhead tech ...

    Imo all the technology based on oil industry is too old to be used.
    We really should be stopping it, but hey, what would all the rich oil folks do then?

    Hopefully they will upgrade hydrogen engines soon.

    Glad you liked Glen :)

    i totally agree, its just common sense but i'm at a point now where i feel nothing major will change till we're forced to. so, the faster the oil is gone the sooner we'll be forced to get wise.
    or not :D

    Good stuff comes from German engineers.
    I have seen something like this before , not the same.
    Fiat had an experimental engine, 50 years ago , saw the drawings but not with the extra piston but a two-stroke.
    The con rod arrangement reminds me of the cam drive of a NSU Max.
    Germans particularly were interested in odd piston in opposition .

    Gobron Brillie Engine
    Junkers Jumo 205
    Found it , that's where i have seen this idea before.
    Thanks.

    Jack Northrop.


    Northrup Grunman recently built a full size model of the 229 and they found out that it was indeed a stealth fighter that would only have given the English military only about a 2:00 minute warning that the fighter was in the air and heading their way. If this fighter was mass produced during WWII it may have changed the outcome, especially if the Amerika Bomber was built.

    i remember vaguely hearing about that one but wow, thanks for that link. that is one out there plane, especially in the 40s during wartime.

    Voyage,
    i love really beautiful engineering but always i get drawn to the German innovative design, so far ahead that it transcends what is happening in the now.
    Intellect at it's highest form in the world of engineering .
    Often i don't get a woody when i see German stuff/ideas but i am in awe of the the innovation.
    It's a strange culture the German engineer, i think we look in and most understand very little but they look out and see more than those looking in.
    I like the way modern Germany has picked through the finest of the old world and seen the historical value that most miss, Audi picked up Bugatti and it was almost a thing of reverence in doing so, then went on to build cars in keeping with the Bugatti ethos.
    Lamborghini, also.
    Skoda, Maybach.
    Then there is the revival of Borgward.
    I have had the pleasure to work on many of the earlier cars , interesting and forward thinking.

    i like how the rods.. one is in tension, the other in compression cancel each other out leaving the joint with 0 force. its engineering 101 but its cool stuff.
