Note: Texte fondé sur des processus automatiques de reconnaissance optique de caractères. Seule la version PDF a une valeur juridique

THE CLAIMS DEFINING THE INVENTION ARE AS FOLLOWS : -

1. An internal combustion motor arrangement comprising a plurality of radially aligned cylinders collectively supported for common rotation about an axis passing transversely through a common radial centre of the said cylinders, a piston slideably retained within each cylinder, a rotor pivotally supported whereby to be rotatable about an axis offset from but parallel to the first said axis, and
connecting means between each piston and the rotor, said connecting means being adapted to allow rotation of the cylinders and the rotor about the respective axes with the resultant relative reciprocal motion of each piston with respect to its cylinder.

2. An internal combustion motor arrangement as in Claim 1 in which the connecting means between each piston and the rotor is such as to allow relative motion of a connecting portion of the rotor in a direction transverse to the axis of the piston.

3. An internal combustion motor arrangement as in Claim 2 in which the connecting means between each piston and the rotor also is such as to allow rotational motion of each piston relative to a
connecting portion of the rotor, about an axis parallel to the axis of rotation of the cylinders collectively.

4. An internal combustion motor arrangement as in any one of the preceding claims wherein the rotor includes, for each piston, a fixedly secured arm having an outer end located within the piston the connecting means including a joining member
slideably engaging a gudgeon pin held within the piston and rotatably engaging the end of the rotor arm.

5. An internal combustion motor arrangement as in either of Claims 1, 2 or 3 in which each piston
has an arm fixedly secured to the piston and extending in the axial direction of the piston having an inner
end engaging the rotor with a joining member, the
joining member being coupled between the said inner
end of the piston arm and the rotor in such a way
as to allow the said relative movement capability
between the rotor portion and the piston arm in a
direction transverse to the axis of the piston and
rotationally about an axis parallel to the axis of
rotation of the cylinders collectively.

6. An internal combustion motor arrangement as in any one of the preceding claims in which
connecting conduits for supply of fuel vapour and
removal of exhaust gases for each cylinder are
connected by a separate conduit for each cylinder
from a common supply conduit co-axially supported
with respect to the axis of rotation of the cylinders,

7. An internal combustion motor arrangement as in Claim 6 in which each supply conduit to each
cylinder follows an arcuate path with the concave
side of the conduit located so as to be behind the
conduit when the cylinders are rotated in a forward
direction.

8. An internal combustion motor arrangement as in either of Claims 6 or 7 in which each exhaust
conduit to each cylinder follows an arcuate path
with the concave side of the conduit located so as
to be in front of the conduit when the cylinders
are rotated in a forward direction.

9. . An internal combustion motor arrangement as in any one of Claims 6, 7 or 8 in which the co-axial common supply and exhaust conduits are in an adjacent heat exchange relationship.

10. An internal combustion motor arrangement as in any one of the preceding claims in which there are means adapted to vary the amount of offset of
the axis of rotation of the rotor with respect to
the axis of rotation of the cylinders.

11. An internal combustion motor arrangement as in the immediately preceding claim in which the offset is varied in accord with operating conditions and loading of the motor.

12. An internal combustion motor arrangement substantially as described in the specification with reference to and as illustrated by any one or more of the accompanying drawings.
