Cyclone Power taps OSU Center for Automotive Research for design and testing services for external combustion engine
6 February 2013
Cyclone Power Technologies Inc., developer of the all-fuel, external combustion Cyclone Engine, signed an agreement with The Ohio State University’s Center for Automotive Research (OSU CAR) to perform design analysis and testing services for the company.
Cyclone has teamed with OSU CAR to assist in the commercialization of its external combustion engine technology, specifically the company’s Waste Heat Engine (WHE) model. OSU CAR will initially perform finite element and dynamic stress analysis of the engine, followed by independent long term durability testing.
Cyclone will utilize Phoenix Power's waste motor oil combustion chamber / heat exchanger (CCHX) to supply steam to the system during these tests, which will also allow the team to document exhaust emissions from the integrated system.
OSU CAR is a Columbus-based interdisciplinary research center within The Ohio State University’s College of Engineering, which is located 30 miles from the site of Cyclone’s proposed joint venture with Precision CNC to manufacture Cyclone engines.
Among other expertise, OSU CAR focuses on advanced engine development; alternative fuels for reduced fuel consumption and emissions; electric and hybrid drivetrains; and advanced battery technology.
