I am doing my project work on opposed piston engines with Gasoline or Diesel as a fuel. Where can I find informaton regarding Design keypoints of these engines? I would also like to have any information on whether these engines can power automobiles and motorbikes.

hello, Today,a great number of small aircrafts are powered by "flat" engines 4 and
6 cyl (all american made, Continental and Lycoming)(more than 6 gives cooling problems for the "last " cylinders). BMW motorbikes are powered by "flat-twin" engines. The 2cv citroën is no longer in production, and so is the 4cv Panhard. That "flat" configuration has been widely used, because it saves a lot of space, and gives a low center of gravity. The Panhard engine more or less survived the end of production of the car in a twelve cylinders engine for a military application. BTW, all the engines I just cited are air cooled. I think there was a german diesel that was water cooled (Deutz, or MAN?), but I am sure of nothing. yours robert hirschel
