In thermodynamics, heat engine (TR:194) (LH:7) (TL:201) is an engine that produces work from heat; generally based on the Papin engine (Papin, 1690), but also inclusive off all phenomena where work is produced from heat (Carnot, 1824).

“In the phenomenon of the production of motion by heat, it is necessary to establish principles applicable not only to steam engines, but to all imaginable heat engines, whatever the working substance and whatever the method by which it is operated.”
