Funcionamiento Motor Rotativo
Una de las particularidades del Mazda RX8 es su motor rotativo. Aquí explicamos sus principios básicos de funcionamiento.
The Mazda Rotary Engine Part 1
Educational film by Toyo Kogyo about the Mazda Rotary Engine. Shows how the Rotary engine works with comparisons to the Piston Engine. Also shows the Mazda RX500 test vehicle on a banked circuit and the Mazda Cosmo Sport (or 110S). Originates from the late 60's.
Rotary Rotational Demonstration
A little video for all those folks that refuse to accept the "3:1" principle of planetary motion inside the Mazda Rotary Engine.
EDIT: For you people that are hung up on my comment at the end of the video, I suspect you are probably one of those at which the comment directed.
It never ceases to amaze me how many people will see this video and continue to argue that there is some other relationship other than 3:1 between the inside and outside worlds of this motor.

2010 Mercedes-Benz Biome Concept
PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THIS CHANNEL:
At the 2010 Los Angeles Design Challenge, the designers from the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad, California, surprised everyone with a revolutionary vision. Taking their inspiration from nature, they designed a vehicle which is fully integrated into the ecosystem, from the moment of its creation right through to the end of its service life. The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept grows in a completely organic environment from seeds sown in a nursery. Out on the road the car emits pure oxygen, and at the end of its lifespan it can be simply composted or used as building material.
"As the inventor of the motor car, we wanted to illustrate the vision of the perfect vehicle of the future, which is created and functions in complete symbiosis with nature. The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is a natural technology hybrid, and forms part of our earth's ecosystem. It grows and thrives like the leaves on a tree" according to Hubert Lee, Head of the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad. This year the competition had called for the creation of a vision of a safe and comfortable 2+2 compact car featuring good handling and a first-class design, and weighing only 1,000 lbs (around 454 kg/kerb weight).
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis - a partnership with nature
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept symbiosis vehicle is made from an ultralight material called BioFibre and tips the scales at just 875.5 lbs (around 394 kg). This material is significantly lighter than metal or plastic, yet more robust than steel. BioFibre is grown from proprietary DNA in the Mercedes-Benz nursery, where it collects energy from the sun and stores it in a liquid chemical bond called BioNectar4534. As part of this process, the vehicle is created from two seeds: The interior of the BIOME grows from the DNA in the Mercedes star on the front of the vehicle, while the exterior grows from the star on the rear. To accommodate specific customer requirements, the Mercedes star is genetically engineered in each case, and the vehicle "grows" when the genetic code is combined with the seed capsule. The wheels are grown from four separate seeds.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is powered by BioNectar4534, which is stored in the BioFibre material of the chassis, interior, and wheels. In addition, Mercedes-Benz has developed a technology to equip trees with special receptors which can collect the excess solar energy and turn it into BioNectar4534. This creates a direct link with nature's energy sources and acts as an incentive to cover mobility energy requirements through more trees and at the same time maintain natural resources. Like plants, the Mercedes-Benz symbiosis vehicle also produces oxygen, thereby contributing to improving air quality. At the end of its service life, the Mercedes-Benz BIOME can be fully composted or used as building material. Thanks to the exclusive use of green technologies, the BIOME vehicle thus blends seamlessly into the ecosystem.
MAZDA RX7 Rotary Engine, How It Works
MAZDA RX7 Rotary Engine, How It Works
The MAZDA RX7 rotary or Wankel engine is a marvel of engineering. It has won more races than any other vehicle in its class. Rotary engines develop a great deal of power for their weight (power to weight ratio). They're also able to develop high RPM bursts like no other internal combustion engine. Learn the details of it operation, how the rotor transfers power to the output shaft, what it the stationary gear set, what is the rotor to output shaft ration and relationship. Get all the specifics on the rotary engine's operation here in this video.
Presented using advanced software CG animation technology to help you understand. Part of our Automotive Technology Rotary Wankel engines and MAZDA RX7-RX8 series shown here on this channel. Enjoy...
