What has man done!!

What has man done!!

Many years ago someone invented the wheel for transport!

Prior to that some one invented man and animals with legs for walking snakes with bending bodies for transfer-motion on land, fish with bending bodies for travel I water and birds with wings for flight.

Walking is a efficient and excellent way of moving around a would that is not flat.

Transfer motion is good for soft terrains not hard flat.

Fish swimming in water bending bodies is great.

Flight is running then flapping wings, gently at first, then stronger till reaching a height and then gliding.

Everything was just happening till the wheel.

Man got SMART !!!!!!

He decided that he would not or would not copy any of these except some fishermen  who waved an oar at the back of their boats to propel them.

Rather than translation everything was rotation!!

Things got wheels

Everything that men made that had to travel across the terrain had to have wheels and the surface it travelled on  had to be smooth.

Instead of stopping and looking at the size of the road making problem man then started too deface the earth’s surface with roads tracks airports.

The screw propeller changes water motion.

Flight by flapping wings soon became not possible because they could not start with a gentle small stroke and increase it as required

Fixed stroke and fixed speed engines were soon making wing flapping out of the question. Instead translation was required at speed to fly. Helicopters an exception.

I believe that we should go back to before the wheel  for transport and rethink

One big mistake – the wheel has set man back a long way.

If all the energy wasted making surfaces for wheels to travel on was not done.

I believe that our grand designer must be sitting there wishing we could get our designs back on track.

So with this thought I now start a new mode of transport

It is walking

If a car could walk and run what a saving in infrastructure

So why don’t things walk

Because no one has troubled to design a walking motion.

Rotation of a wheel can be converted to walking motion

So a rotating machine can provide a walking motion

So motors can power walking

With variable stroke technology walking be controllable.

If all vehicles had legs and walked road surfaces would not be needed

Of course some would to really rough places

It planes could run and take off not travel on wheels they could land in many more places but I propose not running to take off I propose jumping and flapping wings like a bird.

History shows that man decided not to try to fly by flapping wings

It was tried and broke mainly because of the lack of control of the stroke

Stroke control is no longer a problem so I believe flapping wings will work

when powered by an engine.

Water propulsion by bending in the middle in a waving motion may be used like fish do and may be are far more efficient way of propulsion.

So with stroke control available waving of an oar at the rear or bending of the ships body could make it swim.

So what comes out of this is

God, whoever he is, where ever he is, designed us and our world in a brilliant way.

He designed us to self perpetuate.

I would like now to see us start reviewing and redesigning everything that has been invented since man started to use wheels.

One can see why the original designs are the best.

Combustion and how it happens

 So lets look at petrol engines which use a spark

to ignite a mixture of fuel vapour and air

Put our selves inside the combustion chamber—-there is this mixture in the air and in the corner is a spark plug.

The air around you is compressed as the piston rises under your feet at some point it stops and is ready to go down

You look across at the spark plug and a little flame appears which spreads all around you and most of the gas gets on fire as the piston below you feet is driven down

Not all of the fuel air mixture ignites and what does ignite occurs in quite along time

The flame has to travel around the chamber.

This is not efficient combustion approx 25% lost energy

 

Similarly when we look at diesel engine

Put our selves inside the combustion chamber—-there is air only and in the corner is a fuel  injector.

The air around you is compressed as the piston rises under your feet at some point it stops and is ready to go down

You look across at the injector and a fine spray of fuel appears which as it enters ignites because the pressure inside is so great that it combusts and  a flames spreads all around you and most of the gas gets on fire as the piston below you feet is driven down

This is not efficient combustion either approx 10% lost energy

It is obvious that combustion has to be improved

It has been found that

Put our selves inside the combustion chamber—-there is air and finely atomised fuel mixture.

The mixture around you is compressed as the piston rises under your feet at some point it reaches that pressure at which the mixture –the WHOLE MIXTURE  — will ignite due to compression.

You look across and every little molecule of mixture is ignited simultaneously and

combusts and  a flames have happened in every corner at once

this is complete combustion but did you notice that the piston below your feet is still on its way up, and the ignition is actually occurred on the way up ===

==NO GOOD==

This, the problem here is today’s inventors problem to time this combustion to occur as the piston comes to the top and then to make it happen if the fuel has a slight change in quality or climatic conditions..

this combustion is called HCCI Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition

 

Engineers have spent many years trying for this goal!!

  • If HCCI were adopted in all the shipping in the world where combustion was more efficient and pollution far less and shipping costs reduced
  • Similarly trucking using HCCI would be more efficient and pollution far less and shipping costs reduced.
  • HCCI has another advantage in that many different fuels can be used in one engine.
  • This means defence of the country means any fuel found in the field during war can be used.
  • It means the poor countries farmers etc could grow there own fuel.
  • It means that the car industry as we now it can be saved.
  • It may mean that generation of electricity using piston engines may be a proposition.
  • It means that airborne illness could be reduced in the world.

 

Many global car companies are trying to achieve HCCI

GOOD NEWS

There is one company which has solved this 100%— the ignition occurring at the top of he stroke for every stroke

Take one step back and review our progress

I am proposing that the next generation of engine should be the nucleus of a brand new approach, not “doctoring up” the old one. The basic engine principal was invented and produced around 1900 AD – a very good piece of technology when there was unlimited fuel and the only problem with exhaust was it smelt …
