422. Oscillating piston engine. The profile of the cylinder A, is of the form of a sector. The piston, B, is attached to a rock-shaft, C, and steam is admitted to the cylinder to operate on one and the other side of piston alternately, by means of a slide-valve, D, substantially like that of an ordinary reciprocating engine. The rock-shaft is connected with a crank to produce rotary motion.
