Rotary Engine Development

This project involves the development of a unique rotary engine. The project sponsor has a provisional patent for the system, and CAD drawings of the concept which involves  multiple engine cylinders driving dual flywheels. (Image files and mpg movie are available for review!)

This project will involve examination of the concept, and identification of key features that require design and analysis for proof of concept. Crux issues will be material selection, lubrication and wear minimization, manufacturing process steps, thermal analysis, structural and dynamic analysis, component selection, etc. Testing of fabricated components is a key element of the project.
