Abstract
Research into the possible unconventional engine candidates that e2cclude the use of pistons, rotors (Wankel type), lever arm mechanisms, and conventional aerodynamic turbine components, reveals a surprisingly vast array of pumping machinery. Therefore, this Phase I feasibilty study will provide the opportunity to investigate a variety of design approaches potentially capable of meeting the current RPV/UAV heavy fuel propulsion requirements. Inherent specific perfor- mance limitations of piston and turbine engines dictates scale reduction will demand greater design discipline relative to the physics that govern their performance. The preferred system concept incorporates a combination of innovative translations of rotary to reciprocating motion resulting in a compact design of high mechanical efficiency. High thermal efficiency will be achieved by the incorporation of low surface/volume geometry. The design makes extensive use of synergism.
