quasi turbine, Quasiturbine (s) (noun); quasi turbines; Quasiturbines (pl)
A pistonless rotary engine having a four faces articulated rotor with a free and accessible center, rotating without vibration or dead time, and producing a strong torque at low RPM under a variety of modes and fuels; Qurbine: The Quasiturbine can be used as an air motor, steam engine, Stirling engine, compressor and pump. The Quasiturbine is also an optimization theory for extremely compact and efficient engine concepts.

The Quasiturbine is at the crossroad of three modern engines. Inspired by the turbine, it perfects the piston, and improves upon the Wankel.

The Quasiturbine is universal in relation to energy sources: Liquid and gaseous fuel, hydrogen, steam, pneumatic, and hydraulic. The Quasiturbine engine was invented by the Saint-Hilaire family and first patented in 1996. The engine makes use of a complex computer calculated oval shape stator housing, creating regions of increasing and decreasing volumes as the rotor turns. It is capable of burning fuel using detonation, the optimal combustion mode of the future which the piston cannot stand.

quasi-experiment (s) (noun), quasi-experiments (pl)

A lack of control sometimes leaves quasi-experiments with doubtful outcomes because they often lack internally consistent logic, and someone can often find the potential for circular logic, and other invalid reasoning.

Quasi-experiments with controversial outcomes almost always become embroiled in arguments over the lack of internal consistency.

A claim that scientists make for quasi-experiments is that they have external validity, by which they mean that the conclusions are widely applicable for the reason that they are drawn from a phenomenon as it exists in the field.
