Definitions for "Engine"
The words Engine and Pumper commonly refer to a "triple combination pumper" having a firefighting capacity pump (750 gpm or greater), a small water tank (500 gal or less), ground ladders and hose. Some engines carry additional specialized equipment and tools. The Engine's job is to move water from a source such as a hydrant, tanker or pond to the fire scene. If the water is a long way from the fire, several pumpers may be used in a relay to pump the water to the scene. This happens frequently in rural areas where there are few (or no) water mains and hydrants. The main water source in these areas is local ponds and streams. Taking water from a pond or stream for firefighting is called drafting. A Midi Pumper is built on a smaller chassis. It has all of the capabilities of a regular Engine, usually with a smaller crew. In Rochester, a Midi is run as part of a two-piece company on most fires. Area departments use Midis for EMS calls and small fires. They are used as part of the regular assignment to structure fires as well. Some departments (like North Greece) refer to their Midi Pumpers as Attack Pumpers. (see Quad, Quint, Pumper-Tanker, Tanker)
A mobile piece of fire equipment which carries water, fire hose and a fire pump. Sometimes called a "pumper." The Engine is the basic piece of fire apparatus. Several different types of engines exist. (See Type I, Type II and Type III Engines.)
A fire truck or pumper which carries a crew of four, plus equipment, water and pump.
A compound machine by which any physical power is applied to produce a given physical effect.
a device which produces an output different from a given input; in that broad meaning, the term engine encompasses mechanical engines (which convert energy of a fuel or some type of mechanical motion into energy of the desired mechanical motion, e.g. steam engine or combustion engine) as well as computing engines (which convert input data into the desired output data, e.g. search engine or rendering engine). physical quantity symbol: SI units: [] = J/mol enthalpy : a thermodynamic quantity equal to sum of the internal energy () plus external energy, i.e. the product of its volume () and pressure (), of a thermodynamic system
The methanol or gasoline fueled power plant used in a model. Two or four-stroke gasoline and glow engines are very popular in aircraft. Four-stroke engines tend to turn higher diameter lower pitch props, and therefore tend to be used in applications requiring more torque and less speed response.
Keywords:  horsepower, benz, toyota, rpm, twelve
Champ Cars use engines from Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Honda and Toyota. These tiny engines are 2.65-liter overhead-cam turbocharged V-8s producing approximately 850 horsepower at 15,000 rpm. Teams lease their engines from the manufacturers, who maintain them with a team of their own technicians at the track and in their factories. Specific details of the engines are tightly guarded secrets.
A loose term used for the aero-engine which provides the motive power for any flying machine or airship. Aero-engines are both liquid-cooled and air-cooled. The former have less drag, the latter need less maintenance because of the absence of "plumbing." The most common types of air-cooled aero-engines are the radial and the in-line, although there are also some Vee-types and H-types. The most common types of liquid-cooled aero-engines are the Upright and Inverted Vees, although there are some X-types and H-types. Examples of common types are: Category Air-cooled Liquid-cooled Radial Bristol Pegasus - In-line Gipsy Major - Upright-Vee - Rolls-Royce Merlin Inverted-Vee Gipsy Twelve Daimler-Benz DB.601 H-type Napier Dagger Napier Sabre X-type - Rolls-Royce Vulture Most aero-engines run on the petrol four-stroke cycle, but there are some modified Diesel-type engines, notably in German seaplanes.

Software that powers the entire game
The software driving a given aspect of the game. All games have a graphics engine - the game software controlling display. Increasingly, many games are also compartmentalising other aspects of the game as well, such as physics.
Engine is a reference to the application that is used to power a game. In todays games there is generally one primary engine (The graphics engine) and a few smaller engines that power other aspects of the game (AI, Sound). People refer to the whole product as the engine.

An engine is a continuation-based construct that provides timed preemption. Engines which can contain other engines are sometimes called nesters and engines which don't have this ability are then called flat engines. To implement timed preemption there needs to be a clock.
