The principle operating method for inlet air charge transfer utilised in the SPV580 and most other even numbered cylinder stepped piston engines
is shown schematically for reference in Fig 1.
The nitric oxide emission increases by 15.67% for multilayered ceramic coated piston engine

Most of us fly aircraft powered by piston engines
, a basic technology dating back to the late 19th century.
The new engine would weigh a fraction of piston engines
in the 100 horsepower class and have 10 times the life span, according to the Air Force.
A free piston engine
is a heat engine with pistons that move back and forth to extract work from a fluid, or to act as a pump.
Propeller drive units with four-stroke piston engines
are mainly used for the propulsion of UAVs weighting more than 50 kg.
Typical was the O-1E, powered by the 435-horsepower Curtiss V-1150-5 piston engine
and was capable of reaching 145 miles per hour.
The piston engine
produced by Napier called the Sabre was a 24 cylinder, 'H' (laid flat configuration, six cylinders to a bank) of 26.7 litres capacity producing in the Sabre VII, 3000 hp on take off.
Unlike a conventional piston engine
, the Mazda RX-8's rotary engine has no cylinders, piston or valves.
