  Subaru's Green Machine - Forbes.com
In the case of the B5-TPH, the motor combines with a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, gasoline-powered flat engine.
A flat engine is one whose cylinders oppose each other horizontally, as opposed to lining up consecutively or forking away from each other in a V-configuration.
Subarus use flat engines as well as all-wheel drive, and the B5-TPH is no exception.

  Canon Technology | Advanced FLAT 4 Engine
The engine section of Canon's color network digital MFPs employs a laser unit and drum unit for each CMYK color, arranged serially in tandem.
To eliminate color blurring, the engine measures each color pattern formed on the intermediate transfer belt with a photosensor to automatically correct the writing position of each color to the photosensitive drum.
Variations in image density are automatically corrected by forming a patch of each color on the intermediate transfer belt and scanning it with an RRPS sensor capable of sensing image density with remarkable precision.

  Automobile Engines - A Short Course on How They Work
Flat engines use two opposing banks of cylinders and are less common than the other two designs.
The crankshaft is located below the cylinders on an in-line engine, at the base of the V on a V-type engine and between the cylinder banks on a flat engine.
The oil pump is mounted at the bottom of the engine in the oil pan and is connected by a gear to either the crankshaft or the camshaft.

 Crankshaft - Wikicars
Large engines are usually multicylinder to reduce pulsations from individual firing strokes, with more than one piston attached to a more complex crankshaft; but many small engines, such as those found in mopeds or garden machinery, are single cylinder and use only a single piston, simplifying crankshaft design.
The same engine, however, can be made to provide evenly spaced power pulses by using a crankshaft with an individual crank throw for each cylinder, spaced so that the pistons are actually phased 60 degrees apart, as in the GM 3800 engine.
In engines other than the flat configuration, it is necessary to provide counterweights for the reciprocating mass of each piston and connecting rod; these are typically cast as part of the crankshaft, but occasionally are bolt-on pieces.

 LS2 Small-Block Engine
Previous LS6 engines were balanced to a higher degree than LS1 engines; we don't know if that will be the case with the LS2, which incorporates many of the LS6's attributes.
Complementing the revised engine block is a new reciprocating assembly for the LS2.
It's the engine's comparatively high compression ratio--a level not seen in some time on a performance-oriented V-8--that surely will have turbo and supercharger manufacturers wondering how much boost can be put to the LS2 before it arrives at Detonation City.

In an air-cooled engine, the inline configuration is sometimes harder to cool.

 flat engine oil questions - Car Forums and Automotive Chat
I am aware (due to being trained as an AandP) that in aviation it is not uncommon to see rotary engines (not like the 13b but like 9 cylinders aranged in a circle).
But after sitting awhile, the lower spark plugs are removed and the engine is cranked over by hand using the prop.
having oil splash onto the bottom of the piston like that is actually beneficial when the engine is running, it provides excellent lubrication and the oil hitting the bottom of the piston aids cooling the piston.

 Precision Engine-The Rest of The Story
In earlier engines, this function was performed by a solid tappet, prior to the development of the hydraulic version.
In the flat head engine, abundant oil was available for cooling and lubrication of the valve and valve guide because they were in constant contact with oil from the crankcase.
The O-320H is one of their newest engine designs and yet they knowingly increased oil flow to the rocker boxes dramatically as compared to engines with the older mushroom style hydraulic tappets.

 Custom & Speed Parts - Technic - Engine type determination
This Type 1 engine is very easy to recognise by the generator attachment point that is cast on to the engine casing, and on to which the engine number is stamped.
Further differentiating features are the oil filter that is flanged on to the engine block as well as the inlet manifold that lies very flat against the engine with an upright carburettor.
The engine number is stamped under the mounting boss for the breather.

 Engine’s History- Top Speed
The internal combustion engine is a heat engine in which the burning of a fuel occurs in a confined space called a combustion chamber.
The defining feature of an internal combustion engine is that useful work is performed by the expanding hot gases acting directly to cause movement, for example by acting on pistons, rotors, or even by pressing on and moving the entire engine itself.
The engine had a horizontal cylinder; slide valves were used to draw in the fuel-air mixture; and it was double acting, the mixture being fed into the cylinder alternately at either end of the piston.
