have been hundreds, if not thousands of attempts over the past 130 years to
design an effective, efficient rotary steam engine. There are
currently many contemporary rotary engine designs in various stages of
development. To date, it appears each has
been shown to have one or more fatal design flaws.
solved, the so-called 'solution' creates even more design problems. An example of this flawed
approach to engine design is the internal combustion engine.
Engineers keep adding on components in order to reduce emissions, yet the
fatal design flaws inherent within the engine itself, are hardly ever
