Title (EN) COMBINATION INTERNAL COMBUSTION AND STEAM ENGINE
(FR) MOTEUR COMBINE A COMBUSTION INTERNE ET A VAPEUR
Abstract:
(EN) An engine (10) having a series of cylinders (12, 14, 16 and 18) in which pistons (30, 32, 34 and 36) are arranged for reciprocation and which are connected to a crankshaft (38). Two of the cylinders (12 and 18) operate in an Otto cycle, and water is injected through injectors (74) into the exhaust gases of those cylinders for conversion into steam which is directed to the other cylinders (14 and 16) for expansion to drive the pistons (32 and 34).
(FR) L'invention concerne un moteur (10) ayant une série de cylindres (12, 14, 16 et 18) dans lesquels des pistons (30, 32, 34 et 36) sont disposés de manière à effectuer un mouvement de va-et-vient en étant reliés à un vilebrequin (38). Deux des cylindres (12 et 18) fonctionnent suivant un cycle à quatre temps. Des injecteurs (74) injectent de l'eau dans les gaz d'échappement de ces cylindres afin qu'elle soit transformée en vapeur et le mélange est dirigé vers les deux autres cylindres (14 et 16) pour déplacer par expansion les pistons correspondants (32 et 34).
