In this main part, the different types of engines are discussed. Physical basic knowledge is just partly necessary, so you can start right here. Many illustrations and animations explain the processes.
Get to know the scientists, inventors and engineers that made the development of engines possible
The engines have changed the world and also the society. Here, the influence on humanity and environment are discussed. discussed.
This site gives you big possibilities to take part in this site. Make experiments, discuss with others about engines or add your own documents and links to the site, make quizes and more.
