Modern world thrives on heat energy used in different forms.  Automobile industries is ever-growing industry.  95% of the automobile run on IC engines which are powered by fossil fuels.  Aim of thermal is to convert the heat energy to mechanical energy.  Efficiency of automobile is 30%.  Paper describes the potential IC engine.  To meet tomorrows challenges.

creates steam and cools engine by providing free power stroke. . when fluid is at maximum compression.INTRODUCTION      Otto cycle theoretically represents best option for an IC engine cycle. Developed by BRUCE CROWER and MALCOLM BEARE. Fuel energy is converted to heat at constant volume . Six stroke engines captures the wasted heat from the 4-stroke Otto cycle . Two technical modifications in 4-stroke to 6-stroke.


pushing the by products of the fuel explosion out of the chamber.WORKING OF A 4-STROKE ENGINE Fuel/air valves opens the piston moves down . putting the air/fuel mixture under pressure. This leaves the piston back in its starting position ready for another cycle.  Valve closes as the piston moves back up .  . which draws air and fuel into the chamber.  Mixture is then ignited . causing a small explosion.  Exhaust valves opens the piston moves back up once again .

which is not utilized. . The engine harnesses normally waste heat energy by creating steam inside the combustion chamber. the engine radiator is used. Engine runs on normal 4-stroke engine followed by steam stroke and extra stroke. To cool. Engine has some heat energy left in it .BRUCE CROWER’S 6-STROKE ENGINE      Four stroke engine after the exhaust stroke again the suction stroke take place.

stroke engine cylinder head.  The technology combines a 4-stroke engine bottom end with an opposite piston in the head working half the cylindrical rate of the bottom piston.  Amount of power\torque generated by 35%.  .BEARE DUAL OPPOSED PISTON 6-_STROKE ENGINE 6-stroke BEARE HEAD simply replaces the conventional 4.  The BEARE HEAD utilizes an overhead short stroke Crank shaft and piston arrangement which open and closes inlet and exhaust ports leading through the upper cylinder liner. better fuel economy . cleaner burning with reduced emissions.  Engine increases both torque and power output . thus 4+2=6.  Head piston works in a ported cylinder closely resembling 2-stroke.


Inside the extremely hot chamber. the water immediately turns to steam– expanding to 1600 times its volume– which forces the piston down for a second power stroke. which was to hold down combustion temperatures to avoid melting the engine. rather than squirting more fuel and air into the chamber. despite the previous usage of water injection.  It appears to be quite innovative. his design injects ordinary water.  . Another exhaust cycle pushes the steam out of the chamber.WORKING After the exhaust cycles out of the chamber. complete with an intercooler between the stages to limit the temperature rise. The WWII airplanes that used the water injection often used two stages of turbo charging. and then the six-stroke cycle begins again.

WORKING OF BEARE DUAL OPPOSED PISTON 6-STROKE ENGINE ○ Combustion chamber volume : 100 cc ○ Main head: Bore : 115 mm Stroke : 96.5 mm : 250 cc .3 mm Swept volume : 1000cc ○ Beare head:  Bore Stroke : Swept volume : 75 mm 56.






because the change in volume of the Beare Engine Power Stroke is greater than the intake. A one-piece Beare Engine casting from crankshaft to upper shaft becomes feasible. cheaper to tool and produce. The absence of valves within the combustion chamber allows greater Beare Engine design freedom. & exhaust strokes.     .PERFORMANCE AND ECONOMY  Beare Head 6 Stroke Engine is thermodynamically more efficient. No head gasket needed. The compression ratio of the Beare Dual Piston Engine can be greatly increased because of the absence of hot spots in the combustion chamber. The Beare Engine’s rate of change in volume during the critical combustion period is less than in a conventional 4stroke. compression.

 Power/torque increases of 35% (conservative)  Simpler and less expensive manufacturing and tooling.ADVANTAGES ADVANTAGES OF BEARE DUAL OPPOSED PISTON 6-STROKE ENGINE  The net result is.  Lower maintenance costs due to less wearing parts (Beare cylinder head)  Longer service intervals possible due to lower operating temperatures recorded.  Reduction of cylinder head reciprocating parts. .

so that we can prepare ourselves to face that era. The engines may have some flaws in it which can be eliminated as time progresses.CONCLUSION   The world now thrives on fossil fuels. We humans will surely move to an age where there will be no fossil fuel left for consumption and we must try to postpone it by using the available fossil fuel efficiently. . We are sure that these engines will rule the future. but it is an exhaustible resource. The two engines discussed in the above paper promises to use the available fossil fuel in an efficient manner.
