Microcosm T1B Mini Steam Engine Full Metal Hero Of Alexandria Live Steam Engine Model - Enginediy
An aeolipile (or aeolipyle, or eolipile), also known as a Hero's engine, is a simple, bladeless radial steam turbine which spins when the central water container is heated. It is the very first steam engine, a radial steam jet reaction turbine, an invention attributed to Hero of Alexandria sometime between 10 and 70 AD.
Water within the spherical container is heated to produce steam which exits through nozzles directed at right angles to the radial direction, and by Newton’s third law the steam ejected by these jets produce a torque about the rotation axis.
