I am an engineering student. And we have an assignments to test our abilities on working on something new that you never worked on, to help with problem solving and to allow us to tackle any problem.
I picked working on a new way to power an Internal Combustion Engine for my project. It took a while to understand how an engine works but after a long time studying I believe I understand.
In a nutshell, I found a new way to cause pressure inside the combustion chamber to force the piston down - don't want to give to much away as this project is important for me. I want to deliver it and store the systems inside the cylinder head to have direct access to the combustion chamber. My problem is I am stumped on the intricacies of the head. I need to come up with a whole new design but I don't know where to begin. And one problem I am having is how to connect this new head. I was going to use an air tight seal instead of bolts so this could work on any type of engine but I am not too sure as that lose its seal and fall off causing problems. So anyone in this field what components should I consider for making and mounting this new cylinder head?
Sorry if my question is off-topic. I have been researching cylinder heads and engines and know a lot but this part is stumping me. I'm just trying to go to every place I can for help.
