Re: [DML] New JZD engine?



Axial engines are not new. The biggest problem isn't in the strength of 
the components but the configuration of the valves. You can't use a 
camshaft if the valves are arranged in a ring ;) Alternatives are lossy 
and rely on sliding sealing surfaces which therefore promote oil loss.

Interestingly, the drawings show the use of Michel type slipper pads as 
opposed to the more common conrod design.

I researched this type of piston machine for a university project some 
years ago. the animation we produced for our presentation is still on 
YouTube - this shows several components removed to display the action of 
the Michell slippers in our 10-piston double acting air compressor.

If you can make one work, they are one of the most compact engine types, 
and the swashplate doesn't have to be perfectly flat meaning the piston 
movement need not be purely sinusoidal.
