The DynaCam has been in intermittent production since the 30's. The
Revetec looks like a rearrangement to dodge Axial Vector's patent
rights.

DynaCam was in production?  Where? When?  performance?  I thought only in
prototype form and one was in a plane once.  I like the engine. It is simple
and can eliminate a power sapping transmission and has a good power/weight
ratio.

I would like to see one in a car, however I only see one turning a genny.

Swash and wobble-plate engines were good for Stirlings.  The Revetec is an
improvement on the current crank/con-rod set up and looks like it will hit
the market.

What way is the IC engine looking to?  I like the Russian rotary design,
where the seales were in the casing, accessed via a plate to change.

"This is what was formerly known as the "DynaCam" engine and before that,
originally the "Palmer HemiCam" engine, invented and certified by the FAA
for use in aircraft in 1957. Palmer's son Dennis (an old friend of mine)and
a partner tried marketing this for many years and eventually had it stolen
through litigation by a company called Axial Vector Engine Co. (AVEC) which
is based in the United Arab Emirates.
AVEC has corrupted the original design, which was the most efficient piston
engine ever developed. "

The United Arab Emirates? This will not see the light of day then.

June 2009:
http://www.straightstocks.com/market-commentary/axial-vector-energy-corp-axvcpk-sells-first-license-to-manufacturer-engines-in-malaysia-with-premier-group-of-kuala-lumpur/

"Axial Vector Energy Corp. announced this morning it has sold its first
license to manufacture its multi fuel "work horse engines" in Malaysia.
Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Premier Group signed the exclusive
license agreement, which covers Malaysia, Indonesia and parts of Southeast
Asia.
Premier Group has agreed to produce a minimum of 5,000 workhorse engines to
be configured for palm oil use only. "

We shall see.  No announcemnets for auto use - yet.  Looks good for co-gen.
Small and simple.

Another similar sinusoidal engine is the CEM engine which is made as a pump
and can be bought.

A crap web site that needs to be made slicker and more professional.

The sinusoidal engines all show promise, however I see the electric motor
will power vehicles because of the torque characteristics. These small
efficient IC units may be coupled to a genny and power the likes of a Chevy
Volt.  Then co-gen applications.  I still see the continuous burn Stirling
engine as the answer as it operates efficiently and in a hybrid need not be
available for instant power as the electric motor and batteries give than;
used just to turn a genny.  The perception of Stirlings was that they are
bulky consuming space on a vehicle. Free-wheeling piston versions are
available with coils in the piston and cylinder generating electric with one
moving part - no cranks, swash-plates, etc. They are used in some small
co-gen units.

I can't see any resemblence of the Revetec lobe engine bottom end on the
Axial Vector site:

Maybe I have missed something.

The family of cam-, swash- and wobble-plate engines has hung on by its
fingernails for 100 years. The only real successes of the geometry
have been in space limited torpedo engines and the hydrostatic riding
mower transmission.

I build prototypes of new ideas for a living. The more promising ones,
such as what I'm working on now, are well funded and you won't hear
much until they are ready. The dog-and-pony shows promoting the idea
to the public are typical of projects that are in trouble and
desperately seeking less technically astute investors.

They aren't necessarily scams. There's a long history of great ideas
that almost worked except for one "small" problem that no one on the
team could quite solve. Then when the answer arrived from another
field such as materials research, it advanced competing designs even
more.

I didn't realize the purpose of the stock market until I got into such
a project. It provides loans where the lender takes all the risk. The
borrower only has to pay back if the project is successful. It isn't
quite "The Producers" but it's close, inventors rely on "angels" just
like the theatre does.

Look at what Harry Redrup did:  A Dyna-Cam type of "axial" engine in the
1950s...and lots of others:

Fairdiesel are doing a horizontally opposed piston axial design
