Q: about engine

asked by on

Hello,my self shareef..I am a student of mechanical. Is there possible to insert a high elastic rubber and springs on top of piston to increase speed...

Combustion temperatures can run close to 2000 degrees. It’s not likely that any kind of rubber will survive. Also, the springs would need huge amounts of tension to keep up with the fast movement of the piston and that tension buildup would be severely slow with the piston reducing engine efficiency.
