    What is a Diesel Engine ?

    min. 8.+ .... There is translation available, selectable in various languages https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatra_813 Diesels using spark ignition, Diesels using gasoline, gas engines using diesel fuel ... lots of fun!

    Model Diesel: 32mm bore, 38mm stroke, indirect injection

    I see now, it is the sealing foil, like in older soluble coffee tins. Thank you for ideea!

    Model Diesel: 32mm bore, 38mm stroke, indirect injection

    Do you have a link to Milo tins solution? I believe is a quite soft iron. Can it be found in something else? Is enough for purpose?

    Injected Diesel 56cc 2 Stroke, Will it ever work?"

    Hi Lloyd, I really admire your work! I have a question for what might seem a potential issue, unless -of course - is not the complete design; which I believe is the case. The link between cylinder liner and crank case, as seen in the picture, looks not that rigid and prone to cyclic bending...

    Six cycle engine running much better

    Very, very nice! Please explain: 1- what is bought as-is vs what is done by you. All looks very "polished"! (no suspicion; just invitation to tell more) 2- how does engine work (what is centrifugal regulator's role and how it interferes with other parts. How many strokes bypasses at minimum)...

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    It's so good that it affords to evacuate waste gasses at a temperature higher than usual steam's top T; and still stands tall. Of course, I try not to mix apples with pears, as steam cycles are still the highest efficient thermodynamic and overall energy generation path.

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    It is not a direct proof of Tesla's turbine potential, but as long as internal combustion engines were the kings, most of the money for development went in their improvement. There should be no wonder why progress in electrical power chain was so slow and that it looked unpromising. Now, as due...

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    Thank you very much Nerd1000 for taking time to put everything in a useful parametric format and for sharing it! I think it will help many in their calculations; either estimative or detailed.

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    For the sake of truth, I haven't made what could be called deep dive calculations; as I remember Toymaker or Nerd1000 looked through his charted pool of data, diagrams ... and gave some estimations for certain values related to Tesla Turbine's parameters, and there were also the others sharing...

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    Hi Peter, there might be military applications of Tesla Turbine; off course we won't be aware of them most probably. Off course, it is not main stream; otherwise we would find it somehow. For civil applications, I'm aware only of prototypes.

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    I have seen the mentioned efficiency increase jump in this video: Around min. 3.30 . It really is amazing!

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    Thank you for the answer and Good Luck, K2! Considering also what Nerd1000 above said, ceramic bearings are the answer. A lot of friction in standard steel, greased, encapsulated bearings.

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    Hi K2. Can you please specify the measuring units and the reading of manometer on attached video? I am used to think in bars and image is not focussed. With all consideration and ignoring condensation, it is obvious that the turbine is (almost) completely out of its "comfort zone". The fact that...

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    I know FEA is traditionally linked with solid materials and their behaviour correlated to physical shape and dimensions; but as a principle I am sure it translates to programs dedicated to fluids and their properties, considering interactions and modifications of elemental volumes of fluid...

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    Fair enough! Speaking about the real Napier Deltic, that was a nightmare for its designer! That-s why I can't understand why a relatively simple mechanism and thermodynamic device :( like Tesla Turbine is not scientifically described with a reasonable degree of precision; either as a pure...

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    I have the same view. That's why I recommend trials avoiding condensation as much as possible. I'd say there's no big deal in using different setup - just for testing. I would say for a reasonable fraction of condensate, it remains in suspension. On another point of view, the model considering...

    DIY Tesla Impulse Turbine

    Drain, I think, is very good. Definitely you need good bearings. You might try to use a reversible electrical motor to bring it first to a reasonable speed and only after work as generator, but the problem of condensate generation remains. Clearly it needs more steam volume and if possible...
