Antoinette was a French manufacturer of light petrol engines.
Argus Motoren was a German manufacturing firm known for their series of small inverted-V engines and the Argus As 014 pulsejet for the V-1 flying bomb.
In piston engine engineering, a balance shaft is an eccentric weighted shaft that offsets vibrations in engine designs that are not inherently balanced.
In physics, the center of mass of a distribution of mass in space is the unique point where the weighted relative position of the distributed mass sums to zero, or the point where if a force is applied it moves in the direction of the force without rotating.
A connecting rod is a shaft which connects a piston to a crank or crankshaft in a reciprocating engine.
A crankpin or crank journal is a journal in an engine or mechanical device.
A crankshaft—related to crank—is a mechanical part able to perform a conversion between reciprocating motion and rotational motion.
A cylinder is the central working part of a reciprocating engine or pump, the space in which a piston travels.
Internal combustion piston engines (those with more than one cylinder) are usually arranged so that the cylinders are in lines parallel to the crankshaft.
The Daimler-Benz DB 601 was a German aircraft engine built during World War II.
Engine balance refers to those factors in the design, production, engine tuning, maintenance and the operation of an engine that benefit from being balanced.
Engine configuration is an engineering term for the layout of the major components of a reciprocating piston internal combustion engine.
A flat engine is an internal combustion engine with horizontally-opposed cylinders.
The flat-plane crank (sometimes flatplane) is a type of crankshaft for use in internal combustion engines that has a 180 degree angle between crank throws.
Gottlieb Wilhelm Daimler (17 March 1834 – 6 March 1900) was an engineer, industrial designer and industrialist born in Schorndorf (Kingdom of Württemberg, a federal state of the German Confederation), in what is now Germany.
An H engine (or H-block) is an engine configuration in which the cylinders are aligned so that if viewed from the front, they appear to be in a vertical or horizontal letter H. An H engine can be viewed as two flat engines, one atop or beside the other.
The inline-four engine or straight-four engine is a type of inline internal combustion four-cylinder engine with all four cylinders mounted in a straight line, or plane along the crankcase.
An internal combustion engine (ICE) is a heat engine where the combustion of a fuel occurs with an oxidizer (usually air) in a combustion chamber that is an integral part of the working fluid flow circuit.
Italian automobile company Lancia were the first to manufacture cars with V4 and V6 engines in series-production.
Léon Levavasseur (8 January 1863 – 26 February 1922) was a French powerplant engineer, aircraft designer and inventor.
A motorboat, speedboat, or powerboat is a boat which is powered by an engine.
A piston is a component of reciprocating engines, reciprocating pumps, gas compressors and pneumatic cylinders, among other similar mechanisms.
The radial engine is a reciprocating type internal combustion engine configuration in which the cylinders "radiate" outward from a central crankcase like the spokes of a wheel.
The straight or inline engine is an internal-combustion engine with all cylinders aligned in one row and having no offset.
The straight-six engine or inline-six engine (often abbreviated I6 or L6) is an internal combustion engine with the cylinders mounted in a straight line along the crankcase with all the pistons driving a common crankshaft (straight engine).
A U engine is a piston engine made up of two separate straight engines (complete with separate crankshafts) joined by gears or chains.
A V-twin engine, also called a V2 engine, is a two-cylinder internal combustion engine where the cylinders are arranged in a V configuration.
A V10 engine is a V engine with 10 cylinders in two banks of five.
A V12 engine is a V engine with 12 cylinders mounted on the crankcase in two banks of six cylinders each, usually but not always at a 60° angle to each other, with all 12 pistons driving a common crankshaft.
A V14 engine is a V engine with 14 cylinders mounted on the crankcase in two banks of seven.
A V16 engine is a V engine with 16 cylinders.
A V18 engine is a V engine with 18 cylinders.
A V20 engine is a V engine with 20 cylinders, arranged in two banks of 10.
A V24 engine is a V engine with 24 cylinders, suitable only for very large trucks or locomotives.
The V3 engine is a V engine with three cylinders.
A V4 engine is a four-cylinder engine with its cylinders arranged in a "V" configuration.
The V5 engine is a V form engine with five cylinders.
A V6 engine is a V engine with six cylinders mounted on the crankshaft in two banks of three cylinders, usually set at either a 60 or 90 degree angle to each other.
A V8 engine is an eight-cylinder V configuration engine with the cylinders mounted on the crankcase in two sets (or banks) of four, with all eight pistons driving a common crankshaft.
Volkswagen AG, known internationally as the Volkswagen Group, is a German multinational automotive manufacturing company headquartered in Wolfsburg, Lower Saxony, Germany.
VR6 engines, and the later VR5 variants, are a family of internal combustion engines, characterised by a narrow-angle (10.5° or 15°) V engine configuration.
A W engine is a type of reciprocating engine arranged with its cylinders in a configuration in which the cylinder banks resemble the letter W, in the same way those of a V engine resemble the letter V. Four different configurations have been called W engines.
(9 February 1846 – 29 December 1929) was an early German engine designer and industrialist.
World War II (often abbreviated to WWII or WW2), also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier.
An X engine is a piston engine comprising twinned V-block engines horizontally opposed to each other.
