Patent Number: 6,305,159

Title: Internal combustion engine and method for the operation of an internal combustion engine

Abstract: In an internal combustion engine with one or more combustion chambers for burning fuel in timed explosions while forming a combustion gas under pressure, the combustion chambers are connected with at least one work chamber which is separate from the combustion chambers and which has a piston for converting energy of the combustion gas formed in an explosion cycle into mechanical energy or work. At least one injection nozzle which opens into the work chamber is provided for spraying in a cooling liquid to initiate an implosion cycle following the explosion cycle, and one or more precompression pumps which are driven by the movement of the piston during the implosion cycle are provided for compressing air to be introduced into the combustion chambers.
