an engine for powering an aircraft
an engine that uses the expansion of heated air to drive a piston
a fishing vessel of Newfoundland
an early type of steam engine, in which a pivoted beam is vibrated by a vertical steam cylinder at one end, so that it transmits motion to the workload, such as a pump, at the other end
a pump used to draw beer from a cask
The engine bay is the space inside a vehicle for the engine.
an aircraft turbojet unit comprising the engine and its cowling suspended by a pylon, often below the wing
On a boat or a ship, the engine room is the place where the engines are.
the large shed in which trains are kept when not in service
the unit within which an engine is contained
A fire engine is a large vehicle which carries firefighters and equipment for putting out fires.
a type of internal-combustion engine using a flammable gas, such as coal gas or natural gas, as fuel
an engine that converts heat energy into mechanical energy
a type of rocket engine in which thrust is obtained by the electrostatic acceleration of charged positive ions
A jet engine is an engine in which hot air and gases are forced out at the back. Jet engines are used for most modern aircraft.
a four-stroke petrol engine
a steam locomotive that carries its water supply in tanks mounted around its boiler
a gas turbine in which a part of the compressor delivery bypasses the combustion zone, flowing directly into or around the main exhaust gas flow to provide additional thrust
A diesel engine is an internal combustion engine in which oil is burnt by very hot air . Diesel engines are used in buses and trucks, and in some trains and cars .
a small auxiliary engine, such as one used for pumping water into the boilers of a steamship
the metal casting containing the piston chambers of an internal combustion engine
a person who drives a railway locomotive ; train driver
a building in which engines, as fire engines, railroad locomotives, etc., are housed
The engine mount is the part of the chassis on which an engine is supported.
a railway locomotive in motion without drawing any carriages or wagons
an internal-combustion engine that uses petrol as fuel
a locomotive that leads one or more other locomotives at the head of a train of coaches or wagons
an engine in which one or more pistons move backwards and forwards inside a cylinder or cylinders
an engine that generates thrust by reaction to the emission of a jet of plasma
an internal-combustion engine having a number of cylinders arranged about a central crankcase
a reaction engine in which a fuel and oxidizer are burnt in a combustion chamber, the products of combustion expanding through a nozzle and producing thrust
an internal-combustion engine having radial cylinders that rotate about a fixed crankshaft
A search engine is a computer program that searches for documents containing a particular word or words on the internet.
an engine that uses the thermal energy of steam to produce mechanical work, esp one in which steam from a boiler is expanded in a cylinder to drive a reciprocating piston
an engine containing a turbocharger
a type of four-stroke internal-combustion engine without reciprocating parts. It consists of one or more approximately elliptical combustion chambers within which a curved triangular-shaped piston rotates, by the explosion of compressed gas, dividing the combustion chamber into three gastight sections
a steam engine in which the steam is expanded in more than one stage, first in a high-pressure cylinder and then in one or more low-pressure cylinders
failure to operate by the engine of an aircraft, car, or other vehicle
malfunction of a vehicle's engine
a locomotive for pulling freight trains, designed for high drawbar pull rather than high speed
a type of ramjet engine in which air is admitted through movable vanes that are closed by the pressure resulting from each intermittent explosion of the fuel in the combustion chamber, thus causing a pulsating thrust
a self-propelled engine used for drawing or pushing trains along railway tracks ; locomotive
a jet engine, without moving parts, in which the air for oxidizing the fuel is continuously compressed by being rammed into the inlet by the high velocity of the aircraft
an engine, such as a jet or rocket engine, that ejects gas at high velocity and develops its thrust from the ensuing reaction
an external-combustion engine that uses air or an inert gas as the working fluid operating on a highly efficient thermodynamic cycle (the Stirling cycle )
a steam-powered locomotive used, esp formerly, for drawing heavy loads along roads or over rough ground. It usually has two large rear wheels and a rope drum for haulage purposes
a rotary engine that converts kinetic energy of a moving fluid (water, steam, air, or combustion products of a fuel ) into mechanical energy
a gas turbine in which the exhaust gases provide the propulsive thrust to drive an aircraft
