Here is a new style engine. They call it a non-reciprocating engine.

Thats an interesting concept. I dont know what it would run on, but how would it fire with the cylinder moving like that? And how would they get oil, or other coolant, to The cylinder without getting to much or having it mix with the fuel?

That would be interesting to see what would happen when a shaft bearing wears or a bolt breaks. If anything was off timing etc.. that entire engine would be toast!

That looks really interesting,however lots of moving parts gears etc:All you'd need is one set or one gear to wear and then what.The piston going into one cylinder and its not lined up could sure make a mess.Seeing it work on slow speed would be way diffent then greater RPMS Larry

It is definitely different. They have a running model in the last video on this page: http://www.circlecyc...e.com/page2.php

I would love to see some long term testing done and service intervals and in general how long the engine would last until it would need the rings replaced.

I'm with you George, I would like to see some long term testing in actual real life situations. I think it is very interesting and could have some real possibilities.

I had not seen that there were other parts to that site. The running model looks pretty good but I think it would be a very high maintenance and if the tiniest think went wrong it would go KAPLEWIE!

Interesting as a concept, but as George says, how will it hold up? Looks like it would be hard to keep adjusted.

I am extremely leery of any of these "engines of the future". The video of one supposedly running sounds like it's just being ran on compressed air. Also I see no signs of any exhaust fumes at all. Even 100% clean burning engines would at least show visual thermal twisting of the picture.
My son's good friend has been a voluntary victim of a "Engine of the future" scam for about 15 years now. He & several other of his friends invested thousands of dollars with the promise of soon fortune. The first year they told them that any time they would launch a prototype, then within months a model for sale. They have never seen a dime, but yet seem to think they will some day become rich from it. Concepts look so good on paper that gullible people will invest their life savings in hope of becoming filthy rich. 99.99% of the time, only the people behind the concept get rich.
That engine looks so complex I could not imagine it holding together long at all.

Also, after reading more on their site, it reads almost identical to the engine company that is scamming my son's friends. :wallbanging:

To many moving parts, those pistons need to line up right on or there not going to go in the cylinders, what happens when there's a little bit of wear and things start to get sloppy. ???

They really don't care, as they will already have enough investor money to last them for years! :smilewink:
