Zero CO2 and Zero heat pollution compressed air engine for the urban transport sector is an engine design that is powered and lubricated solely by compressed air. In other to guarantee these functionalities for the engine design, its modeling was done following the mechanical engineering design method. This article highlights the creation of a mathematical model of the engine. This work covers the design synthesis and the analysis of the kinematics of the engine. For the design synthesis; FAST, GRAFCET and later one realization of conceptual sketches all deductions from the problem definition. With the sketches considered, the kinematics and dynamic formulations where later on realized. The design chosen highlight’s the external forces to come principally from an isothermal expansion process of the compressed air what is termed the expansion chamber of the engine. The analysis was done on the kinematics of the engine with considerations of some assumptions. This article ends with remarkable results as it concerns the engine’s simplicity and guaranteed high efficiency. These conclusions were drawn from the compact nature of the design, the low part count and the reduced displaceable masses which give little of no conflicting movements in the engine design.
