ICE(internal combustion engine)are very highly developed machines. Today any improvement in the efficiency is needed to extend the supply of limited resources.
Modern ICE engineers have developed every part but one the valve that connects the atmosphere to the combustion chamber.
At the present time the simple poppet valve used in modern ICE has never been challenged seriously. The design is so entrenched it is being used multiply in some high performance engines.

What's next?

The coaxial valve is next. Using all the evolution of the poppet plus adding one more on the same axis we came up with the simple design of the atent.
Flow tests show improvement in ...

Did you ever notice on the highway that whenever you hit a slight bump or a small indent in the road, there is a darker patch on the pavement. This is caused by the sudden drop of accumulated fluids on the vehicles’ undersides.

POTHOLE NIXER is an attachment to the undercarriage of automobiles, buses and trucks that use the natural force of gravity to dispense a two part sealer to potholes. The first part is a liquid fixer that is sprayed in the area of the hole, the second is a dry powder filler that is sprayed in the same place and attaches to the liquid fixer.

When the first wheel crosses a hole in the road POTHOLE NIXER ...

A compressed air car is an alternative fuel car. We can create the new world which does not pollute the surrounding by vehicle emissions. This can be achieved by making the compressed air engine that operates under dual operation. That is simultaneously power the car and run a compressor without any external energy. We well know about four cylinder petrol/diesel internal combustion engines. Most of the vehicle uses the four cylinder IC engines. Here, a V-type engine is very suitable for get dual operation. So we can achieve to get the full emission free air car by this method. It is the best solution of the alternate sources of the automobile field. By this way we can avoid the ...

On of the main obstacles to increased space exploration is the lack of nearby habitable worlds. Mars atmosphere is less than 1% of Earths, while Venus' is 92x denser, making both worlds uninhabitable despite their agreeable surface gravities and within the margins solar habitable zone. Making these planets habitable would allow for human colonization, decreasing population on Earth, preventing the extermination from an extinction level event, and making it possible for Earth to handle a lower more sustainable population in a cleaner environment.
Physicist Ernst Mach's principle of the source of inertia, the basis for Einstein's theory of general relativity, that local inertial effects are due to the gravitational attraction of distant matter in the local universe, has been ...

Trucks are essential for transportation and economics. On the other hand the fuel consumption of trucks especially heavy trucks has not been reduced as strong as compared to passenger cars in the last decades.
One reason for the high fuel consumption of trucks is given by their edged design, which causes a high aerodynamic drag. Especially at the back of the truck trailer a lot of turbulence is generated at higher speeds. To reduce the turbulences and therefore to decrease the fuel consumption a rear airbag is proposed for truck trailers.
The airbag can be stored in a rolled form under the trailers end. When the truck will start for a longer distance this airbag can be rolled out ...

Current surface transportation technology contributes to over two-thirds of US petroleum consumption and nearly one-third of greenhouse gas emissions. Measures to decrease this reliance on petroleum will improve national security and decrease global climate change. Electric vehicles (EVs) offer such an opportunity, but challenges with battery capacity, rate of power delivery, and recharging requirements limit vehicle range, acceleration, and convenience, respectively. Methods for reducing fuel consumption by aircraft during idling, taxiing, and take-off also offer opportunities for increased efficiency. NASA-GSFC proposes the novel implementation of both linear induction motor (LIM) and inductive power transfer (IPT) technologies to transform EVs into a viable transportation solution and to reduce aircraft fuel consumption.

A LIM is simply a cylindrical motor that has ...

Presented system for regenerating automobile kinetic energy loss in deceleration uses a piston engine that as a compressor charges a reservoir and as an engine augments the main engine on acceleration. Effectiveness exceeds that of electric power absorption systems because energy and maximum power absorption are greater while the size, weight and cost are much lower. For example, a Volkswagen Jetta, whose aerodynamic and rolling resistances were determined in road tests, are used in parametric studies, weighs 3260 pounds, decelerating at 0.5 g’s initially dissipates kinetic energy at 195 kW. A 200 kW generator and battery storage are much too large and heavy for automobiles so little of available energy is recovered.

Regeneration System – Attached Figure shows schematic ...

Imagine riding your bicycle down the sidewalk at 20mph. Just as you approach a driveway entrance to a store, a car turns from the street into the driveway, cutting you off. You brake safely to a stop, and because of your new Regenerative Braking front wheel, you can press a button and bring your bike up to over 15mph without any pedaling or external energy !

This invention is real and you can ride a prototype today ! It uses state-of-the art hydraulics to store braking energy for later release. The goal is to ultimately make it a retrofit front-wheel for any bicycle using hydraulic pump motors that exist today and are over 94% efficient. It can store hill ...

As companies around the world have grappled with how best to implement electric cars and electric transmissions, they have fallen prey to the trap of old design paradigms. They insist on placing a small electric motor under the hood, just like a gas motor, with batteries under the floor boards. It’s time to break from this mold, and to utilize one of one nature’s greatest gifts to mankind – Mechanical Advantage.
Archimedes famously said, “Give me a lever long enough, and a fulcrum to place it on, and I shall move the world.” Truer words were never spoken. The proposed concept, Very Large Armature Motors, seeks to take this concept as far as it will go. The motor, in ...

* Here is a product that enables movement of people and goods from one place to another.

* A plug-in hybrid vehicle requires an on-board system to recharge a battery. The system could be a fuel cell stack or a combustion engine. Unlike an engine which directly drives the vehicle, such an engine does not require much torque. It can be either an external combustion engine or an internal combustion engine.

* The Rotary Stirling-Cycle Engine is a combustion engine which can be in a rotary Stirling configuration in a rotary IC configuration. It provides smoother operation than free-piston Stirling or free-piston IC engines. The Rotary Stirling-Cycle Engine is a true rotary engine ...
