Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0964691205, Paperback)

Manual's physical characteristics: 8.5" x 11", 111 pages, 87 drawings. This work discusses major engineering design aspects of rotary engines based on U.S. patent #4,653,446 and is written to shed light on a substantial new technology which until now has been relegated to obscurity. The manuals introduction contains generalized observations about my experiences during the invention and patenting processes for the engines and their related pumps, and a short review of the working principles and characteristics of the engine. Thereafter, the engines are discussed from an engineering perspective, and I strongly recommend the reader have at least a year of calculus. From the manual...

"I've written this manual to give the technical community a guide from which to work in their engineering analysis and design of the engines. To that end, the solutions of the engine design problems are rigorously handled in great detail. ... With the manual, designers, using their preferred computer tools, should be able to investigate the FRE operating characteristics to their own satisfaction. This manual is also intended for people with a technical background but no direct design experience in the engine or pump fields, technically oriented students, and the technically competent curious. Therefore each section of the manual, which requires in the reader a solid understanding of the underlying scientific and engineering relationships used in its discussion, includes a short, reasonably thorough, review of the cogent technical background material. These reviews are included to reacquaint the reader with material they've likely seen before albeit as part of their remote past studies and for students and others who may or may not otherwise be familiar with the material; e.g. thermodynamics, gas transport, combustion processes, hydrodynamics."
