This is impressive!!!
Four steps that changed the World are Intake, Compress, Ignite, Exhaust. This is a standard cycle of the piston in the cylinder. Piston is rotating heavy crankshaft in the block, and this rotation gives life to metal can on wheels, which we used to call a Car. Cylinders are placed in different configuration; most conventional is in-line.
With the evolution of motors engineers built more efficient configurations of the cylinders, such as opposite, when cylinders are placed opposite to each other. This type of engines is mostly used in Subaru rides, and in Buses with rear engine compartment. We almost forgot about our beloved V-engines. What does it mean “V”? Of course, this means Very powerful, just kidding. V – is the configuration of the cylinders in the block. V-engines are considered the most efficient, much more than in-line, and lot more reliable, than opposite. However, European engineers have one more letter for speed addicts – “W”. W-engines are the same as V, but with one more cylinder row added in the middle. And now here`s the revolution, I`d call this “O” – engine.
How many spark plugs you would need for five cylinders? At least five? No, Duke-Motor Company answers – three. Just imagine that the cylinder is moving around the block. The principle of running this engine is lot more interesting, even than Wankel rotor engine. The Duke’s unique counter rotation, 3 dimensional, almost vibration free motion and the innovative methodology employed to achieve this, addresses previous limitations that have prevented the commercialisation of axial piston engines to date, especially at higher power and speed.
