INCREASE OF COMPACTNESS OF INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE

The article analyses the possibility of reducing the weight and size of the piston engine by the use of offset crank mechanism. The proposed scheme of the engine, presents the results of a study of balance and mechanical losses of the engine of this scheme.

Keywords: piston engine, reciprocating engine, weight and dimensions performance, VR-engine, offset crank mechanism, power calculation, analysis of balance, mechanical losses
