  Rotor System | Kranksett
Rotor System provides the definitive solution to this inefficiency, which is typical of conventional pedalling, by definitively eliminating dead points.
Rotor makes the cranks independent in such a way that they are not aligned at a fixed 180º, but rather the angle between them varies during the cycle in such a way that one pedal never coincides with the one below, thus avoiding power vacuums.
Rotor can be fitted to all the frames and accessories commercialised on the market, and is available in road (double and triple discs) and mountain bike versions.

 rotor/body
Rotor torque was measured using a torque disc instrumented with a strain-gage bridge and attached to the rotor shaft.
This is a standard trim procedure for articulated rotors in a wind-tunnel situation, and ensures that the rotor tip-path-plane (TPP) is perpendicular to the rotor shaft axis and, therefore, parallel to the longitudinal axis of the body.
Since the rotor downwash is a maximum near the edges of the rotor disk, the boundary of the rotor wake becomes quite clearly defined by the peaks in the body pressures.

 Inertialess Drive - About the Rotor   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The rotor is essentially a solid sphere with a small piece strategically cut out to enable the secondary rotation when a reasonable velocity is applied.
A rotor that is spun to a reasonable velocity is seen to quickly rise to run and rotate in a perpendicular manner along its exposed edge.
When the rotor is positioned at the centre of gravity of the machine, the rapidly rotating mass increases the balance capability of the robot and can also form part of its power source as well.

Rotor has replaced their old configuration with the new RSX4, which consists of a semi-integrated two-piece crank and bottom bracket arrangement with a splined spindle.
Well, clearly Rotor would have gone under years ago if there were no performance benefits to this thing and Rotor makes some rather heady claims, such as a 16% increase in power output, a 15% reduction in lactic acid production, and a 5% reduction in heart rate as compared to a standard crankset.
For those of you who are wondering, Rotor also has a singlespeed configuration available which consists of the same 34T ring as on the triple setup but with a matching CNC machined outer chainguard and dummy inner chainring without teeth to protect the main bearing.

 Rotor Configurations
The tail rotor compensates for the torque that is produced by the main rotor.
Like the tandem rotor, this configuration doesn't need a tail rotor because the torque is compensated for by the opposite rotation of the rotors.
Only after the development of the rigid rotor was it possible to build the two rotors closer together and reduce the drag considerably.

 15.5 rotor -- Enigma-like encryption and decryption
To encrypt, we choose several different rotors, and set the origins of the rotors to known positions; their initial position is the ciphering key.
We then change the origin of the final rotor by one position, from `A' to `B'; if the final rotor has made a complete revolution, then we rotate the next-to-last rotor by one position, and apply the same procedure recursively.
The most important difference is that in the original Enigma, there were only 5 or 6 different rotors in existence, and they were applied twice to each character; the cipher key was the order in which they were placed in the machine.

 R.O.T.O.R. Review - Jabootu's Bad Movie Dimension
ROTOR fires first — maybe because he’s the one who bothers to level his weapon — but the wounded guy returns fire and hits the android.
She agrees they must bring ROTOR in, although, as she asks her erstwhile partner, "You know it’s impossible, don’t you?" This brings up the whole and rather obvious issue of some sort of failsafe mechanism.
ROTOR, now improbably boasting a separate line on each leg (how the hell would that happen — his right foot was flat on the ground the whole time) and arm, is stretched out ala a drawing and quartering.

 Rotor Router Model
The Rotor Router Model is composed of a directed graph (infinite or finite) with a rotor attached to each vertex.
The rotor at a given vertex is a pointer to one of the edges that leaves that vertex.
The twist is that each time a bug visits a vertex, she rotates the rotor so that it points to the next edge, before following the rotor.

 Plans - Rotor
The speciality of this Rotor is that it its idea, shape and function was taken from the machines used to produce power from water, or from the jets of an airplane.
The presented Rotor has a diameter of about 80 cm, turns with a speed of about 40 up to 250 turns per minute (depending on the windspeed) and pulls quite heavely.
If the rotor will be attached to a flying line of a kite, you should attach a strong piece of about 1m length to enlarge the distance betweend the fast turning rotor and the flying line.

 ONDotnet.com -- An Architectural Tour of Rotor
The Microsoft Shared Source CLI Implementation (aka "Rotor") is a source code distribution that includes fully functional implementations of both the ECMA-334 C# language standard and the ECMA-335 Common Language Infrastructure standard.
Rotor is liberally licensed for non-commercial use -- you are free to make modifications and to share these with other folks, for example -- but it is licensed.
Large parts of Rotor are written in C#, and because the Rotor C# compiler outputs CIL opcodes rather than native code, this means that large parts of Rotor are compiled by the JIT compiler when the types are loaded, at the last possible moment.

 Rotor Blades
The rotor blades of a wind turbine are like the wings of a glider.
The wind turbine uses the lift of the rotor blades to make the rotor turn.
If we use the right wings of the gliders and turn the topsides towards the back of the rotor, we will get a wind turbine rotor rotating clockwise.

 rotor
You may need to change the rotors if your current rotors are warped and have already been turned once or twice or if you are putting on after market rotors.
At this point they are not dangerous (less than 1 cm), however, these rotors have seen a good amount of racing and are slightly warped when they are not up to racing temp.
The rotors are 'floating', meaning there is nothing besides the brake caliper and the pressure between the wheel and wheel bearings keeping them in place.

I believe that this speed increase was the direct result of riding and training on Rotor Cranks.
This is enough to suggest that I might be about 90seconds faster in a 40K on the rotors.
My personal testing almost reflects Rotor's claims of improvement but I would probably say they are worth around 1.5 - 2 minutes an hour rather than 3.

 Wave Rotor Topping Cycles for Gas Turbine Engine
In support of the Turbomachinery and Combustion Technology program, the wave rotor is being investigated for use as a core gas generator in future gas turbine engines in order to achieve high peak cycle temperatures and pressures.
Because each passage of the wave rotor is periodically exposed to both hot and cold flow, the mean temperature of the rotor material remains considerably below the peak cycle temperature.
Steady state design and off-design cycle deck calculations for a four port wave rotor core using current subsonic engine technology for the surrounding turbomachinery indicate that the wave rotor can readily meet the aero/thermodynamic requirements, substantially reduce specific fuel consumption and increase specific power.

 New theory of rotor dynamics
Since then, the rotor dynamics became a part of vibration theory and a proving ground to use the fundamental equations of vibration theory.
When the fundamental equation of the rigid rotor dynamics on flexible shaft is examined carefully, it is clear that these equations are erroneous (see the critical review of rotor dynamics "vibration" theory).
Authors of this scientific paper have confirmed, that with increase in amplitude of sag of a shaft for a rotor rotation it is necessary to increase a torque.
