Felix Wankel (Physics Project)

Home  \  Off Topic  \  Felix Wankel (Physics Project)

For Honors Physics at school we have to research a famous engineer or scientist for a project/ paper. I chose Wankel mainly because I dont really know much about rotary engines and wanted to know more, and he was the only famous engineer related to cars that I saw fit for a project. So, if you all could post some info, or good sites that you think would be helpful that would be great. Thanks. :thumbs:

http://auto.howstuffworks.com/rotary-engine.htm <-- thats a prety good article. You should also visit RX7club for links to detailed technical explanations of mazda's implementation of the rotary in the RX8, RX7 and their predecessors.

I also strongly recommend http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page. This website is one my trusty sources when i have questions.

Also, why not try a Otto vs Wankel research paper?

Thanks man. I already checked out Wikipedia, and they had alot on him. I am only supposed to do one guy, so I cant do a Otto vs. Wakel, but that would be cool. :thumbs:

You have many options...write a report on the guy who invented diesels or write a report on Otto (designed the 4 stroke).

The best guy IMO to write about is Leonardo Da Vinci (he is a scientist, inventor, doctor, artist, philosophist, you name it) one of the greatest minds to ever exist.

I dont really wanna do someone that well known...

posted by  M3er

That and we arent supposed to do really famous guys. But Otto and the Diesel guy are good ideas, but I know that Diesel has already been done, so...

posted by  StiMan

ill take that into mind
