Serious horsepower in monster engines

Blogs are a bunch of fun. You get the opportunity to help educate children and adults in whatever topic the blog represents. Today, I’d like to introduce a link to a website that has some very interesting engines. Wikipedia defines “an engine or motor as a machine designed to convert energy into useful mechanical motion.” The engines you will see burn fuel to create heat. The heat, through a series of processes, creates motion. This is different than the DC motors that are featured on this site that convert electricity into mechanical motion.

When you hit the link below you will be taken to a site that has ship engines. As a matter of fact you will find seven “Monster Engine Designs.” Actually, I counted six engines and the seventh engine shown is part of a contest to identify the name of that final engine. Notice how large the engine is – you can tell how large the engine is from the size of the man standing on the platform.

Well, here is the link, enjoy seeing and reading about some of the largest engines on the earth.
