An internal combustion engine is provided that has a stationary cylinder block in which cylinders contain reciprocating pistons that are sequentially actuated to impart torque to a revolving rotor. A unique rotor is provided that includes a cam surface that controls the reciprocation of the pistons through followers. Ports in the rotor conduct working fluids to and from the cylinders. An exhaust blow-down nozzle is provided in the rotor that transforms kinetic energy in the exhaust into additional torque. There is no residual gas fraction present during ...
In an internal combustion engine having a cylinder block with at least one cylinder with its axis arranged substantially parallel to a rotatable main shaft, and said at least one cylinder having a single reciprocating piston therein, the improvement comprising: a rotor rotatable with said main shaft, said rotor including a cam flange having an undulating configuration, said piston including a cam follower in rolling contact with said cam flange, ignition and intake and exhaust means operable by said rotor to produce a cycle of operation of said engine, s...
