The turbine Tesla is a bladeless centripetal flow turbine patented by Nikola Tesla in 1913. Many considered the Tesla Turbine Engine of the 21st Century. Nikola Tesla created an engine design nearly 100 years ago that is as much as three or four times more efficient than the combustion engine design that has dominated for reasons other than science. At the time of his invention around 1909, Tesla was able to demonstrate a fuel efficiency of 60% with his bladeless turbine design. The maximum combustion efficiency of engines today do not get above 27 - 28% of efficiency in converting fuel to work. The politics of his day prevented Tesla's design from being implemented. The piston engine was already in place, and the oil barons were not encouraging efficiency. Still today, the engine manufacturers to resist any change due to the conversion of the expenses.
