"The Electrical Experimenter- The Tesla Gas Turbine"...July, 1920

"Dr. Nikola Tesla, whom the readers of this publication know very well and whose amazing work in the various scientific fields is also universally recognized, again comes in the limelight with a remarkable explosive gasoline turbine perfected by him recently which he describes in detail in a patent just granted. This remarkable turbine does away with all the troubles and complexity to the former attempted types. Stated briefly, the invention consists in the production of a peculiar shape conduit, thru which the gases are admitted into the turbine, and which has the singular property of permitting their passage in that direction only; in other words, uni-directionally. This device when used in conjunction with the bladeless turbine produces an engine which may be explosively operated by gasoline, alcohol, or other fuels and is absolutely devoid of all valves. It is the simplest internal combustion motor conceivable. Owing to the tremendous output of the turbine, one single disk being practically equivalent in performance to a whole bucket wheel, a very small machine of this kind is capable of developing an astonishing amount of power...

The upper part of the turbine casing has bolted to it a separate casting, the central cavity of which forms the combustion chamber. To prevent injury thru excessive heating, a water jacket may be used, of else water injection, or lair cooling, this all the more readily as very high temperatures are practicable.

Under such circumstances the progress must needs be slow and perhaps the greatest impediment is encountered in the prejudicial opinions created in the minds of experts by organized opposition." p

"I have developed 110 horsepower with disks nine and three quarter inches in diameter and p making a thickness of about two inches. Under proper conditions the performance might t have been as much as 1,000 horsepower. In fact there is almost no limit to the mechanical performance of such a machine. This engine will work with gas, as in the usual type of ^■RIRnPIIJlfflilll^H explosion engine used in automobiles and airplanes, even better than it did with steam.
