The website says they have a new, patented thermodynamic cycle. I couldn't find any explanation or PV or TS diagrams explaining what this cycle is.
What I recall from my 20th century Combustion Engineering class it that the PV diagram should show small pressure offsets for intake and exhaust gas flow pressure losses. This is why dedicated gear heads will go to the trouble of porting intake and exhaust headers. Turbocharging, supercharging, tuned pies, etc., add different pressure/volume points to the PV diagram that affect overall bmep and efficiency.It's just my opinion but from my experience anything less than a straight shot in to the combustion chamber limits the volumetric efficiency (VE) and therefore the power available, due to inward flow disruption (Drag), trying to get through a convoluted passageway. Naturally Turbo or Supercharger would benefit here.
It's much like the Mazda Rotary, with some possible improvements with lubricated seals in the Housings. That's why the peripheral Ports in the Mazda Rotary, will provide up to 30% increase in VE.
Don't get we wrong, I do like it and I'm no expert either, but could be difficult to get into production with everything going Electric
Seeing that the 'moment arm' of the crank to the combustion 'oval' is mere inches (1inch??), and even then tangential to the crankshaft, all you have left is spinning mass and again, not very much.I dont know much about engines, but if you have three combustions, torque should be higher
