Rotary Engine Design
« on: April 20, 2010, 04:31:20 PM »
I need to design from the beginning a rotary engine. I'm now studying the epitrochoid but i have not found enough information about it, there not a lot of webs with valuable information (web with animations and explanations are ok but I understand how it works) I need design parameters and definitions.

Do you know of a place where I can have a look? If it would have been a conventional engine there would have been tons of information on the web.

I need to to draw a first approach of the epitrochoid too, I'm going to do it with Catia V5, but I have never introduced a formula in Catia, and it would be great to do so, as i have the parametric equations of the epitrochoid.

problem solved... i found myself te parametric equation that fits a rotary enginge epitrochoid and its rotor.

What I couldn't do is drawing it in CAtia, because I don't know how to introduce parametrical equations, i did it in fortran+tecplot.

Anyway if anyone knows ho do it... :)
