Several different versions of air-drive engines have been described in the previous chapters. One which is particularly powerful, is the "Suction-Cylinder-Engine" when driven by compressed air. Water-drive engines require a much more complex arrangement of closed circuits due to the strong centrifugal forces caused by using such a dense working-medium.

This new concept of the "Centrifugal-Thrust-Engine" shows that centrifugal forces can contribute to turning momentum. Initially, however, we need to discuss some general points of view concerning the inertia of rotating systems.

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
