Watch How A Rotary Engine Works!
How many times have you thought about a rotary engine? Several times if you are an engineer for sure! A rotary engine is an internal combustion engine, like the engine in your car, but it works in a completely different way than the conventional piston engine. No similarities at all. Not even if you try hard to point out. This type of engine was widely used as an alternative to conventional inline engines (straight or V) during World War I and the years immediately preceding that conflict. It has been described as "a very efficient solution to the problems of power output, weight, and reliability".
So the question is, how does it work? To understand that, you should know a few basic principles about the rotary engines.
Like a piston engine, the rotary engine uses the pressure created when a combination of air and fuel is burned. In a piston engine, that pressure is contained in the cylinders and forces pistons to move back and forth. The connecting rods and crankshaft convert the reciprocating motion of the pistons into rotational motion that can be used to power a car.
In a rotary engine, the pressure of combustion is contained in a chamber formed by part of the housing and sealed in by one face of the triangular rotor, which is what the engine uses instead of pistons. Check out the video on the next page to know more...
#1 The Brilliant Video
As mentioned earlier, A Rotary Engine is completely different from a piston engine. In a piston engine, four different jobs are alternately done by the same volume of space- intake, compression, combustion and exhaust. A rotary engine does these same four jobs, but each one happens in its own part of the housing. It's kind of like having a dedicated cylinder for each of the four jobs, with the piston moving continuously from one to the next.
