    This topic is related to an invention I have been developing for quite some time.

    It is a vehicle and engine combo / non-combo that is aimed at achieving the highest amount of efficiency a vehicle may achieve, even the possibility of free energy operation moments, not perpetual motion.

    There is alot of physics involved in this concept aswell as engineering, but I wanted attention from both perspectives and decided to post it here.

    Now I was working on patenting this but I decided to let it go public and hope for the sake of good that something happens with it.

    I encourage everyone to respond with critiques, comments, ideas, or whatever else floats your boats.

    First I we have the concept designs. Then second the description and theory behind the concept.

    Designs.

    --------------------------

    Invention Overview:


    Title: Free energy developing transportation system with multi-fuel flash-curve spontaneous operating photodetonation engine.





    ___This invention system is a combination of many things. There is two main sections that make up the system that can also be used independently of each other in various applications. First is a vehicle design containing multiple functions that generate energy where energy is normally lost or unused. The functions work together at achieving and assisting motion to the extent attempting self propulsion without pollution. Second, a new and unique engine design concept I developed originally for the car design to use hydrogen with internal combustion. The engine is unlike other engines because of how easily and how well it can be modified and arranged.

    The Vehicle:

    ___It uses a series of onboard invention devices that make use of lost energy in typical everyday driving and transportation to re-route that lost energy back into the vehicle to be used to assist the vehicle in motion. As we know it takes energy to create kinetic energy. This existing kinetic energy of moving cars is made of use with these designs. I originally designed the vehicle concept to use hydrogen as the fuel source which the engine is capable to use as fuel and regenerate the hydrogen from the water put back into the electrolyses tank. The engine in the vehicle would be configured to turn an electric generator which would be the main power source to move the car. The drive wheels would have electric power drawn from this main generator. With this configuration there is no need for energy robbing transmissions and gears and their excess weight. Also the engine only has one task, and that would be to turn a generator at a specific rpm. This would be more efficient than having the fuel burning engine being the direct applicator to the dynamic energy consumption a car requires. This way the internal combustion engine can be designed to operate at low revolutions with powerful torque configurations to turn a generator. This will avoid fluctuating rpm ranges for the engine and to attempt to expend less fuel then it would when designed to multi task for low and high rpm operation as typical vehicles do. The engine would also not be in a direct joining with the generator (or transmission for that matter). Since engines have compression braking and friction braking which is a wasteful use of existing kinetic energy, it is designed to have a one way power grip (like a bicycle) before engaging to the generator or flywheel. It will allow motion to want to stay in motion regardless if the engine drops in rpm or stops running all together. With this, If the engine is required to stop it may, and the generator, possibly containing a flywheel, would continue to use its spinning energy into creating energy that it can. Also if engine failure was to ever occur there would be virtually no mass to keep it rotating which should lower damage to engine components. When the car is not making 100% use of the electric output of the main generator, then, that electricity would be directed back into storage (like batteries) or electrolysis to create more fuel (hydrogen) and/or the load of the generator could be decreased to match demand of the electric consumption for the electric engines attached to the drive wheels to attempt better fuel consumption. In other circumstances the engine would be even be able to shut down while the car maintains power creation from the many devices onboard, and would continue to function on slight downhill grades and other similar circumstances.

    ___The following is a list of how the vehicle creates this energy from the lost or unused energy sources.

    ___Hydraulic ram energy generators:These are pressure rams that send high pressure hydraulics through a pump that spins a generator. The rams would contain large volume of hydraulics and a short length of motion. The hydraulic release lines would contain a small volume to have long term use of the available pressure and turn a generator to create electricity or store hydraulic pressure.

    1) De-acceleration energy: When the car slows down there is forward geforces exerted and this creates the ability for work to be done. The hydraulic rams would be configured to use the weight of the car to pump high pressure hydraulics through small volume lines then turn generators or storing the pressure. (see, page 1-C)

    2) Acceleration energy: Same as de-acceleration energy only the opposite. When a car accelerates it experiences backward geforce which is captured in the same way as D.E. (de acceleration energy).
    (page 1-E)

    3) Side to Side energy: When a car turns on corners it wants to continue in a strait line this lateral geforce is likewise used in the same manner as D.E and A.E. Capturing the weight of the car to do work to make energy to propel.(page 1-D)

    4) Vertical energy: when a car hits bumps and dips in the road it experiences vertical geforces. In this system the replacement of standard shock absorbers would be replaced with a different setup with high flow hydraulic rams that turn pumps/generators, and the pump restriction would provide the damping conditions to the rams for the desired shock absorption.
    (page 1-F)

    5) centrifugal tire force energy: A temporary force to be made use of with low volume high pressure lines of hydraulics to assist turning of generators, most likely the same ones of 1,2, and 3. In town driving has alot of stop and go driving. This is where this limited energy generation would have most use. Making use of speeding up tires.(page 1-A)

    6) Regenerative braking: An already existing technology but another member to the list as a significant part of the system(page 1-B)

    7) Air Flow Energy: As a car drives down the road at high speeds air passes over the body creating a vacume or low pressure enviroment. Wind resistance is used here to be scooped up through a vent in the front of the car, pass under the car to pressurize an air pathway and turn an air turbine that is configured to require it to rotate in order to let air pass. In the meantime the body shape would be configured in such a way to create a more efficient vacume around the exit of the air pathway to create a carburetor like action of sucking the air out of the vent helping in lowering wind resistance and generating greater power through the turbine. (page 2)


    8: Heat energy: The engine design requires coolant and this coolant would be heated by the combustion which in turn can be used to operate a steam turbine or steam engine of some kind and yet still direct the remaining heat into the electrolysis system, as I understand hydrogen is more easily made with heated water through electrolysis.

    9) Exhaust Pressure Flow Energy: I beleive this may be an existing technology to use the turbo design to capture exhaust pressure to create energy.This is another member to be used to direct energy back into the car to create motion, fuel, or energy. The exhaust pressure turns a turbine which in assists in generating electric power for the car to create motion.

    10) Solar Energy: Simple concept, when parked or driving solar cells placed in certain areas on the car to assist in fuel creation or motion.

    11) Onboard Manual Energy: Exercise is an important part of life and finding the time to do so is difficult for some. This concept would have push pedals or bicycle like pedals to get exercise and at the same time generate power into the car that pull out from hideaway spots in the car. Aswell as a backup system to generate some energy to move to vehicle over a short distance to a desired location if failure has occurred or a fuel loss. Also, for those long trips one would find comforting to get the legs moving and flowing to prevent cramps and soarness on the road. Main reason, exercise on the go for a culture much in desire that likewise assists your car. Personally I would enjoy such a thing.

    12) Battery/capacitor - Onboard boost capacitor or batteries for acceleration boosts and extra power needed moments. These can be charged up either from plugging in to an existing power supply or using the already existing power generating members in the vehicle to charge these energy storages.

    ___As a result we have a lightweight car that could most certainly function slowly just from the solar power yet, there are a dozen so far functions all in which are working together to accomplish the same task, in turn, creating a free and multi energy system designed to try to assist motion as much as possible reducing fuel consumption significantly or produce more fuel from a water holding tank to extend fuel economy.

    The Engine:

    ___It uses internal combustion to power an off circular like crank round and round with multiple combustion chambers surrounding this crank in a radial manner. This unique crank is what I call the flash-curve crank. The curve of the crank manipulates the energy delivery of the burning fuel. The modification of this single part creates the amazing ability to adjust power characteristics like; higher or lower rpm efficiencies, compression ratio control, and controls piston speed and stroke length. Which allows the engine to adapt to several tasks and even different kinds of fuel. It is designed to eliminate as much energy robbing friction and dead time as possible that decreases engine efficiency and power. Also, the greater the diameter of the crank the greater the leverage the combustion applies to the power shaft. The engine design should create a constant flow of power to the crank giving it a somewhat turbine like action. The design allows for the ability of dozens of powerstrokes per revolution depending on how many combustion chambers are arranged around the crank and/or how many of these engines are united together.

    ___The engine works like a typical piston and crank engine. Power is developed in a combustion chamber using either the 4 link 2 cycle combustion chamber (see page 4), or if preferred, the standard piston design. The power from combustion is directed to the flash-curve crank through the connecting rods. Each push rod / connecting rod has a low friction roller which is located on the top and bottom of a roller track that is part of the flash-curve crank (see page 3). The pistons are forced to follow this track up and down however the crank is configured, in turn, having precise control of combustion action which should allow for quick adjustment to power demand and fuel choice. It is the shape designated to the flash-curve crank that determines the characteristics of the engines function. As the crank rotates it causes all the combustion chambers to follow an exactly timed and tuned cycle (page 3)

    ___For the photodetonation process of combustion, the track on the crank would have what I call a popper where combustion is desired. This "popper" would be the point of which fuel would self ignite under a certain quick pressure increase by hitting a sudden lift in the track. This quick peak in pressure would cause ignition in the combustion chamber and immediately allow the piston to move downwards forcing the crank around for the next combustion process. The 4 link diamond shape combustion chamber also creates a 2 cycle action. This design can be tuned to prevent fuel from being lost through any ports like typical 2 stroke designs suffer, and in turn should be more efficient than current 4 stroke and 2 stroke engines when configured correctly, because of less dead time and better efficiency of fuel.

    ___Each combustion chamber is to have its own forced induction system timed to that specific chamber. It is designed to have a tunable air/fuel injection volume. It is designed to control the flow of fuel/air that the engine requires under cirtain circumstances (page 5). Precise pressure and flow would be consistent for the engine demand regardless of rpm. This matching of engines demand of air/fuel volume reduces vacume drag for more efficiency like a turbo. If this 4 link combustion chamber design is not sufficient and turns out unplausible the concept can still be maintained using standard piston like design. The forced induction system would need only to be made of lightweight plastic like material since all it is made to do is pump air/fuel into the engine to avoid friction and weight.

    ___With the 4 link combustion chamber I considered the fact that it could be designed to allow coolant fluid to run directly through the combustion chamber walls themselves. Coolant fluid running inside the piston so to speak should create very efficient cooling. The engine is also designed to have no reason to idle. The spontanious operation means to have a push from hydraulic pressure or electrical energy to engage the engine to operate only when it is required to.

    ___The changing of the flash-curve crank would require a few simple steps to remove and replace with a different one that changes power and or fuel desire. The engine should be easily and cheaply be converted to existing vehicles. When using this engine, vehicle operators have options to run different fuels, configure their mileage and power by stopping down at the mechanics shop to have their desired flash-curve installed. It will offer less pollution from photodetonation process, more efficiency, power, durability and easier maintenance.

    i have not read everything yet but there have been cars to(not fully as much as youre design)that could run on electricety with the same price as gas in the usa.

    it was shut down by people who still had to "pump" some money (100trillian dollars) from the remaining earth-oil-reserves

    7) Air Flow Energy: As a car drives down the road at high speeds air passes over the body creating a vacume or low pressure enviroment.

(page 2)
    would cause air resictance, making more weight than
    it would be more effective by installing dinamos on the wheels.

    to heavy, makes more wheight and to little energy to be effective enough.

    geforces seem to work, even though i dont know if it would be to heavy, some of the parts. 6 and 3 would work, 4 happenes to seldom and generates to little energy. 2 like 4

    also: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCFFq...elated&search=


    I haven't come to fight my word, but to find the truth.

    Not neccessaraly true.

    All cars have air resistence to begin with. So we take that avg resistence and we call it a starting point, zero.

    The air would be funnelled into a scoop in the front of the vehicle. That makes its way into a pathway that narrows, accelerating the incoming air. It the passes through a nearly weightless turbine, since the forces involved at not too intense. All the while we make use of a force that is not currently used in cars. The vacume effect, or the bernulli effect (sort of the same). The roof design creats a negetive pressure area. As you drive the high pressure air in the turbine pathway (higher than the atmosphere is naturally forced out, or sucked out if you will, to the negetive pressure area at the roof.

    This can be done with very little resistance alike an airplane wing.



    The other part you say too heavy. but the car is already much lighter due to the many things removed like a transmission, a motor, a driveline.. etc.

    Its far to early for you to say what is and what is not if you are not sure of the details at hand.

    But I thank you for the reply and interest.
