Complicated mechanism explained by simple animations

We are like to know how machines work and or how a mechanism does the job it does. Well, here are a good number of them. 

Rotary Engine
Also known as Wankel engine, it is a type of internal combustion engine which converts pressure into rotating motion instead of reciprocating pistons


Radial engines
Radial engines are used in aircrafts having propeller connected to the shaft delivering power in order to produce thrust. Today, however, most aircraft use turbine engines

Steam engine Principle -locomotives
Once used in locomotives, it was based on the reciprocating principle

Sewing Machine, how it works

Torpedo-Boat destroyer System
Used to destroy fleet in naval military operations.

Manual Transmission Mechanism - inside the gearbox
Known also as “stick shift”, it is used to manually change gears in vehicles

A jet engine
Used mostly in aircraft

Maltese Cross Mechanism
This is used in clocks to power the seconds hand movement 

 Constant Velocity Joint
Used in front-wheel drive vehicles

Reciprocating-piston engine
Used in almost all fossil fuel based engines
