DESIGNING A VARIABLE-STROKE ENGINE

Researchers at Sandia Laboratories, with ERDA support, are taking an active role in this area by seeking refinement of the conventional reciprocating, internal combustion powerplant. The Pouliot engine -- named for Sandia's H.N. Pouliot -- is a five-cylinder, variable-displacement product of their efforts. Its innovative control of power output by varying piston stroke may well be a fruitful branch of internal combustion design.
