Tore Technologies (TORTECH) and Elastic Engineering (ELASTONEERING) is an adoption of natural mechanics based on toroidal motion with the purpose of creating on this base:
1. Tore based elastic machines and mechanisms,
2. Engines and energy systems,
3. Suppression systems for natural mass destruction weapons like hurricane / tornado.
From  it is seen that the main construct (design) element of:
· Tore/elastic machines and mechanisms is thin sealed or non-sealed (for pressure impulse) elastic/soft toroidal shell made of real elastic/soft material and filled out with working/fluid medium at overpressure (gas) or at normal pressure (liquid): eversible (turning inside out) or enveloping elastic toroid. When external or/and internal forces are applied elastic toroid moves forward turning inside out / enveloping (rolling)  relative to its anchoring belt.
· Engines and energy systems – virtual thin non-sealed eversing elastic/soft shell continuously filled up (by suction from outside environment) with fluid medium at overpressure (gas) or normal pressure (liquid): steady eversible/ enveloping elastic toroid/vortex.
Most important types of tore/elastic machines and mechanisms are vehicles toroidal propulsive devices including loading – unloading operations and having many consumer and performance characteristics.

This allows sensible and intelligent (contrary to “blind”) work (“Vortex Heat- Generators”, “Energy Extraction from Environment with the Help of Vortex” etc.) aimed at making propulsive devices, engines and energy & information systems on its base – creation of controlled gas and/or liquid eversible/enveloping elastic toroids allowing further capture of energy and /or information from them and/or target conversion thereof.
Functional features and advantages of toroidal propulsive devices
“Propulsive Device” is a device designed to convert the work of an engine or other energy source into the work setting vehicles movement” .
Vehicles toroidal propulsive devices belong to propulsive devices with super low (not more than 0.20 kilogauss/sq. cm) internal pressure of working/fluid medium  in toroidal elastic shell that moves forward turning inside out / enveloping (by rolling) relative to its long axis.
Complex researches related to conventional propulsive devices, wheeled or caterpillar ones are described in many publications, for example in [20, 21] whereas the information on tore based propulsive devices is gradually becoming publicly available [22 - 25].
Let us describe the peculiarities of vehicles toroidal propulsive devices in “automobile language” though lacking experience in this area and supposing that knowledge presented in this article requires additional study and development:
Vehicles toroidal propulsive device as one of the types of propulsive devices is divided into several sub-types (Fig. 2):
1. Progressive motion by turning inside out under the effect of external forces when the mechanism of elastic toroid’s eversion is located outside toroid.
1.1. «Ikar» - Pipelined, submersible, subterranean and air transport.
Base surface of propulsive device like a “tube” (funnel) or fluid medium surrounding the propulsive device: gas, liquid, loose material (sand) is external peripheral body that fully or partially covers the peripheral part of eversible elastic toroid  (Fig. 2а ).
1.2. «Kozhar» - earth - based or above-water transport.
The base surface may be soil (at the bottom) or the boundary of 2 different medium, for example liquid/gas and/or platform bearing roller (on top) that partially covers (envelopes) the peripheral part of eversible elastic toroid [4 – 8, 28] (Fig. 2b, с).
Fig. 2 Examples of sub-types of vehicles toroidal propulsive devices:
а – pipeline transport; в – earth-based or above- water transport; с – earth-based transport - a container filled out with fluid/working medium; d – earth-based transport; е – earth-based transport - gravitational container/propulsive device filled out with fluid/working medium.
1 – turning inside out/enveloping elastic toroid,
2 – base (support) surface,
3 – force effect: а,в,с – mechanism of eversion outside the shell; d,е – mechanism of eversion inside the shell
2. Progressive motion by turning inside out under the effect of external forces when the mechanism of elastic toroid’s eversion is located inside toroid’s shell.
«Mukhtar» - Earth-based, submersible, air or above-water transport.
The base surface may be soil, “tube” or fluid medium: gas, liquid or loose material (sand) surrounding propulsive device or the boundary of 2 media that fully or partially cover (envelope) the peripheral part of eversible elastic toroid [27, 28] (Fig. 2d, е).
3. Progressive motion by enveloping under the effect of external or internal forces when the mechanism of elastic toroid’s envelopment is located outside or inside toroid’s shell.
«Shikar» - Single-rail / string transport with enveloping or suspended wagons (carriages).
Base surface is single-rail / string being a central body, for example rail, stock, rope or reeds fully covered with its central part elastic toroid by enveloping.
4. Combination of mentioned sub-types.
Technical and performance characteristics
Data is received from comparing toroidal propulsive devices with conventional ones.
Let us analyze the most widely used vehicles propulsive device: «Earth-based and above- water transport».
In the family of toroidal propulsive devices soil, water or the boundary of two medium is used as base surface for this sub-type 1.2. (Fig. 2).
• Conventional wheel and caterpillar can move forward by rolling only relative to (around) its long axis whereas the progressive movement by rolling (eversion /envelopment) along the same axis (at 90º) is not possible because:
- chamber (tire, tore) cannot everse relative to its long axis as tore’s outside diameter is larger than its internal diameter and when there is an attempt to turn it inside out tore just chocks (jams).
- a caterpillar forced to move by means of rolling relative to its quadrature axis/axes will probably look like “stupid” (idiotic) invention.
On the contrary, elastic toroid can progressively move by turning inside out / enveloping (rolling) along its long axis and also move forward by rolling relative to (around) it, i.e. vertically (in perpendicular direction) to long axis.
• Main force characteristics of elastic toroid (toroidal “wheel” of a vehicle) are twice as much as force characteristics of a spherical wheel. Chamber - Tire - Tore put (mounted) on a rigid disc with axis can be represented as a spherical wheel with axis . Then at other equal conditions, for example same dimension (height) and overpressure of working/fluid medium in the shell cavity there are the following advantages:
- tension (stretch) value of shell material in elastic toroid is half of that in shell material of elastic sphere,
- shock absorbing properties of elastic toroid are twice as better as those in elastic sphere - “double” shock absorption: in the zones before and after “squeezed” flat central part of elastic toroid,
- material tension at the flanks of elastic toroid is half of that in the peripheral part, therefore the possibility of material pick or deformation is much less and flexibility with regard to collision to sharp, hard obstacles is much higher, there is no slippage (sliding friction) during collision or head-on crash.
- «washing» of the obstacle instead of knocking against it or colliding with it. – stretched (strained) central part of elastic toroid (squeezed and tending to become a plain) is an internal tie reducing to half longitudinal loadings to the shell material thus preventing its busting from inside by working/fluid medium in the shell of elastic toroid at overpressure.
• Elastic sphere does no have the central part being an essential element of elastic toroid. This adds to elastic toroid extra design capabilities allowing increase its functional features, for example the use of central body.
Process of axis integration into wheeled or caterpillar propulsive device as an obligatory element of its performance requires unreasonably complex and expensive design and engineering efforts.
• The wheel “captures” from engine 10-15% of its power (caterpillar about 20%) and elastic toroid - five times less (4%).
• The area of contact surface of wheel tire is increasing due to decrease of internal pressure thereof, in wheel tire it may change maximum 10%, in caterpillar 0% whereas in toroid up to 500% (5 times as much) and more (Fig. 3, top).
• Toroidal propulsive device may be simultaneously:
- loading-unloading device with better technical and economic characteristics comparing to similar devices (Fig. 3, bottom) because the height of wheel tire increases due to decrease of internal pressure thereof, in wheel tire it can change maximum 10%, in caterpillar 0% whereas in toroid up to 200% (2 times as much),
- propulsive device and elastic container for handling “loose” cargo, for example fuel (Fig. 1c),
- propulsive device and elastic platform for handling (carrying) various types of cargo and /or placement of additional technical systems therein,
- Propulsive device for displacement over hard surface (transport facility) and in water (floating platform).
• Possibility of using extra equipment also made on the basis of tore technologies and elastic mechanics: tore lifting jack, pump, cable hoist for self extraction etc.,
• Possibility of “adjusting” parameters of propulsive device to fit required carrying capacity and other technical requirements with the help of unified modules. Each module includes drive lead infinite belt, belt transmission, tension roller, tightening device, rollers of friction infinite belt, infinite belt and eversible elastic toroid,
• Possibility of quick disassembly of propulsive device (if required) and its further tight stowage for its shipment on other vehicles. This is particularly important for air shipment sensitive to size and weight of a transport facility.
• Toroidal propulsive device can be equipped with engine working on various power sources,
• Possibility of using any types of trailer (wheeled, caterpillar, sledge etc.),
• Use of soft ramps to overcome ditches, cracks, difficult roads,
• Possibility of using replaceable spare toroidal shells. Due to small size and volume during storage they can be used as other functional elements: machines for increasing floatation ability, containers for liquid and gas fuel, household appliances (beds, tables, chairs, mattresses, pillows) etc.
• Toroidal shell is a protective shell protecting cargo against knock,
• Toroidal propulsive device can be displaced manually, for example with the help of cable hoist, which is absolutely not possible for “heavy” conventional propulsive devices,
• Availability of various “wheel formula” options, which is excluded for conventional propulsive devices,
• Formation in a certain manner of a platform in the structure of toroidal shell material and/or inside its cavity and/or on its outside surface – peripheral and/or central part thereof etc.
Significant advantages of toroidal/elastic propulsive device in comparison with existing wheel and caterpillar vehicle propulsive devices are:
- small energy and material intensity in key design elements of propulsive devices – elastic toroids, where the mechanism is an interaction between the shell and the fluid medium; sliding friction is replaced by rolling friction; metals are replaced by composite materials of the shell; requirements for conditioning (processing) “remaining” rigid surfaces are not very tough etc.,
- easy to assemble and operate in difficult conditions;
- transportability and convenient warehousing;
- significantly less energy is required for shell eversion (enveloping) than for driving through wheel or caterpillar axis;
- overcoming road surfaces inaccessible for similar devices; better cross - county ability for overcoming obstacles and slopes etc.;
- elastic toroid has significantly larger contact area with the base surface and wider possibilities of its adjustment (if required);
- low unit pressure to base surface (less than 0.1 kilogauss/sq. cm);
- low pressure of fluid medium in a shell (maximum 0.2 kilogauss/sq.cm), such pressure can be generated by a human being with his lungs, though it takes more time;
- high amortization and shock absorbing abilities;
- higher lifting capacity;
- very simple design of vehicle suspender etc.
Fig.3. the upper part shows dimensions of contact surface of arched tire, pneumatic roller, normal tire, elastic toroid and caterpillar.
The bottom part shows luggage loading/unloading options directly by toroidal propulsive device.
It is without doubt that in terms of performance characteristics, practical application, environmental parameters, “pantophagy” in extreme conditions and actually in any operational environment (medium) toroidal propulsive devices in vehicles surpass similar conventional drivers.
Toroidal propulsive device functioning
Vehicle toroidal propulsive device consists of drive/lead infinite belt 1, enveloping (rounding) the rollers mounted on a frame and driven by a roller 3 connected to transmission 4 and engine 5 (Fig. 4).
Tension is achieved by tension mechanism 7. Friction infinite belt - eversing elastic toroid- envelops (rounds) two rollers 8, it is a central part of elastic toroid 10 and is frictionally (due to friction force) connected to drive infinite belt 1.
Fig. 4. One of the simplest from design and construction point of view toroidal propulsive device  realized as working model.
1 – drive, lead infinite belt, 2 – frame/platform, 3 – drive belt rollers, , 4 - transmission (belt), 5 – engine, 6 – strain roller, 7 – tension mechanism, 8 – rollers of friction infinite belt, 9 – friction infinite belt, 10 – eversible elastic toroid
Operation of toroidal propulsive device:
Engine 5 through transmission 4 rotates roller 3, setting in motion drive (lead) belt 1. This belt due to friction forces drives friction belt, which is being a central part of elastic toroid 10 turns it inside out. As elastic toroid is located on a base (bearing) surface (soil) it interacts with the surface and moves the vehicle.
Behavior of elastic toroid during obstacles overcoming (Fig. 5)
А. If the height of an obstacle (h) is less that half of the height of elastic toroid (H) (A, B, C, D - positions І, ІІ, ІІІ), toroidal propulsive device easily overcomes the obstacle regardless how long (length l) and wide (width s) the obstacle is.
В. If the height of an obstacle (h) is more than or equal to half of the height of elastic toroid (Е – positions І,ІІ,ІІІ) “jamming” (squeezing) caused, as thought, by high sliding friction (jamming) between internal area of central and peripheral part does not happen. Operational capability of elastic toroid is not disturbed because when elastic toroid runs into (knocks against) high obstacle the pressure in the shell of elastic toroid drastically increases, thus preventing internal surfaces of elastic toroid to join each other (to close). And we have in this case a kind of gas or liquid bearing. Moreover, even if the contact happens the surfaces are sliding relative to each other. This was proved by the tests on material with polymer coating.
