The Beginning of the Diesel Engine

Theodor Diesel a leather worker and manufacturer of small consumer goods from Augsburg Germany moved to Paris France in 1848. In Paris he would meet the daughter of a prosperous merchant that was also from Augsburg. The young lady named Elise and Theodor would fall in love and be wed in 1855. This young couple would start a family to which  young lad named Rudolf Diesel would be born to on March 18th 1858. Theodor would work nearly round the clock 6 days a week to provide for his family.

The young lad of the family , Rudolf would watch his father and ask  questions whenever possible. The mystique of it all inspired Rudolf to learn more. In 1855 he would set up his first shop in Paris where he would begin to develop a compression ignition engine. His work would lead to the first Diesel Engine

On February 23, 1893, Rudolf Diesel received a patent for his diesel engine. Instead of gasoline, this engine burns fuel oil and uses compressed air in the cylinder instead of a spark to ignite the fuel.
