The Saint - Hilaire family first patented the Quasiturbine combustionengine in 1996. The Quasiturbine concept resulted from research thatbegan with an intense evaluation of all engine concepts to noteadvantageous, disadvantageous and opportunities for improvement.During this exploratory process, the Saint – Hilaire team came to realizethat a unique engine solution would be one that made improvements tothe standard Wankel or rotary engine.Like rotary engines, the Quasiturbine engine is based on a rotor-and-housing design. But instead of three blades, the Quasiturbine rotorhas four elements chained together, with combustion chambers locatedbetween each element and the walls of the housing.

There are actually two different ways to configure this design --one with carriages and one without carriages.
The Simple Quasiturbine Engine
The simpler Quasiturbine model looks very much like a traditionalrotary engine: A rotor turns inside a nearly oval-shaped housing. Notice,however, that the Quasiturbine rotor has four elements instead of three.The sides of the rotor seal against the sides of the housing, and thecorners of the rotor seal against the inner periphery, dividing it into fourchambers.

In a piston engine, one complete four-stroke cycle produces twocomplete revolutions of the crankshaft that means the power output of apiston engine is half a power stroke per one piston revolution.A Quasiturbine engine, on the other hand, doesn't need pistons.Instead, the four strokes of a typical piston engine are arrangedsequentially around the oval housing. There's no need for the crankshaftto perform the rotary conversion.
