Radial engines are used in aircrafts having propeller connected to the shaft delivering power in order to produce thrust its basic mechanism is as follows
Steam engine Principle
Steam engine once used in locomotives was based on the reciprocating principle as shown below
Maltese Cross Mechanism
this type of mechanism is used in clocks to power the second hand movement.
Manual Transmission Mechanism
The mechanism also called as “stick shift” is used in cars to change gears mannually
Constant Velocity Joint
This mechanism is used in the front wheel drive cars
Torpedo-Boat destroyer System
This system is used to destroy fleet in naval military operations.
Also called as Wankel engine is a type of internal combustion engine has a unique design that converts pressure into rotating motion instead of reciprocating pistons
