This paper describes about the
development of the latest PISTONLESS
rotary-engine, “THE WAVE DISC
ENGINE”. The Pistonless rotary engines
have the most potential to solve the
problem of eventually losing the
availability of fossil-fuels. The wave disk
engine "uses the combustion of air and fuel
to build up pressure within the engine,
generating a shock wave that blasts hot gas
exhaust into the blades of the engine's
rotors, causing them to turn,which inturn
generates electricity." Since fossil fuels are
nearing the end of their existence, finding
ways to use less of them is crucial to
preserve our supplies as long as possible.
The traditional internal combustion engine
only uses 15 percent of its fuel for
propulsion. The remaining 85 percent is
essentially wasted. But the wave disk
engine promises a big step forward—it
could use 60 percent of the fuel to create
power, making it up to four times as
efficient. Therefore, perfecting the wave
disk engine that requires around thirty
percent of the fuel that current engines
require will benefit all of man-kind greatly
by continuing the convenience of driving
from place to place. Thus the WAVEDISC
ENGINE is spinning the future.
