    All engine be they piston, rotary, or turbine rely upon gas expansion to provide force to the drive shaft. Each is highly complicated and involving more than one moving part.
    DaS overcome this by using simplicity against complication.
    The engine pictured is of heat configuration, however if combustion is desirable in place of the gas passing through the liguid cooler and back into the turbine it passes direct to attmosphere and fuel/air is taken in in place of cool gas.

    Hello PAR,

    I get asked that often, but no, if anything a twist on the steam turbine. Water alone may be used. Though the cool gas intake is left off. If used in this mode greater cooling of the cooling tank is needed. The boiler return pump of conventional steam turbine is done away with.
