Animated Engines To See How They Really Work

Maybe you know about 2 and 4-stroke engines, but most of you don’t know about a Wankel, an Atkinson, a Gnome Rotary or jet propulsion and many others. See them at work in cool graphic animations. May also help you fall asleep at bed time… Animated Engines. (thank you Troy)

    Wow! Is that ever neat!!! I never thought a Sterling engine would work until my boss brought a small one in to work. It worked great!! He is a journeyman machinist trained in the UK and this was one of his apprentice projects. Thanks for the info above and beyond the usual!

    Saw a Gnome Rotary run at Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome in sept. What a sound, blip throttle and ignition that cuts out cylinders when less power is needed. No wonder the life of a WW1 fighter pilot was so short. Brave souls they were.

    I use something similar in my Auto Shop class. The kids really get a good understanding of how things work. Thanks for posting.

    I’m surprised a conventional Radial Engine is not depicted..

    Ride on
