Right now I´m getting prepaired for my 3 last final exams and also doing a research work asked by a teacher to contribute to the Mech. Eng. chair (apart from the final project) due to my interest in the subject and permanent questioning about the lack of R&D arround here. I´m starting with the ´R´ at least, we will see if someone helps us with the ´D´Belatti wrote: Check, Carlos, everyone, I´m deeply grateful for all the links and info you are posting in this thread. Sorry I don´t have enough time to read them all or even post something right now, as I´m limited to read the forum 20 min at work and then all my free time available is for studying...
I don't think that we are lacking those types of people, I think we are lacking an environment where they are welcome.riff_raff wrote:Belatti,
Where are you attending school and what is the subject of your current research project?
I'm long past my school years, but I have a unique hybrid propulsion system I'm working on, on my own. If you're interested, send me an email, and I'd be happy to talk to you about it. I can't give you all of the intimate details of it because I'm still pursuing patents on it. But I am free to discuss some parts of it, and since you are pursuing an advanced level of education in this area, you might find it interesting.
If there's something this world's currently lacking, it's ambitious, creative individuals. And I try to do everything I can to help create more of them.
Surfaces exposed to combusting gases in an engine can react either productively, by moving, or wastefully, by heating. In traditional engines an average of less than 25% of the combustion chamber'ssurface area is productive. In an IRIS that average skyrockets to more than 70%of the chamber's surface area. Furthermore, because so much of the chamber is productive, gases can expand further than in an ordinary engine before openingthe exhaust valves. This means that an IRIS engine also captures energy that previously flowed out the exhaust pipe.
