A mechanism of Energy Conversion invloving two bent pistons (sets) ind a toroidal
chamber with a sequential opertion the combines features of positive displacement and rotary mechanisms.
Machine structure basics
The genesis of RVCR is the invention by Er. Ajee Kamath, which details a new configuration of components of novel geometry, into an assembly of ‘Moving elements’ (ME) and ‘Stationary Elements’ (SE). Improving efficacy of converting fluid forces to torque, is key to RVCR mechanism.
Beginning with conventional slider crank mechanism. It comprises of cylindrical piston sliding inside a Barrel (same as in a syringe used for injections to patients). While one side of the piston draws fluid, the other side is used pull and push it. The needle is fitted on top of syringe, and the fluid is sucked in and pushed out through it. In machines the barrel to is fitted with a covering called head that has valves for allowing the fluid and out of the barrel.
RVCR is about bending the barrel, into a toroid. The pistons are bent and a pair of bent pistons are placed within the toroidal space. When one bent piston slides the other one stays rigidly stationary.
The moving bent piston (referred as piston-vane) now has one side drawing fluid (the side moving away for the stationary vane-piston) while the other side is pushing fluid is against the stationary one. The stationary piston acts as the head. The vane-piston fits closely inside the toroid, and sealing arrangements to ensure the fluids on either side of the vane-piston do not leak past to the other side.
