  Interne  \In*terne"\,  n.  [See  {Intern},  a.] 
  That  which  is  within;  the  interior.  [Poetic]  --Mrs.  Browning. 
 
  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Internal-combustion  engine  \Internal-combustion  engine\)  in 
  which  the  heat  or  pressure  energy  necessary  to  produce  motion 
  is  developed  in  the  engine  cylinder,  as  by  the  explosion  of  a 
  gas,  and  not  in  a  separate  chamber,  as  in  a  steam-engine 
  boiler.  The  gas  used  may  be  a  fixed  gas,  or  one  derived  from 
  alcohol,  ether,  gasoline  (petrol),  naphtha,  oil  (petroleum), 
  etc  There  are  three  main  classes:  (1)  {gas  engines}  proper, 
  using  fixed  gases,  as  coal,  blast-furnace,  or  producer  gas; 
  (2)  engines  using  the  vapor  of  a  volatile  fluid,  as  the 
  typical  {gasoline  (petrol)  engine};  (3)  {oil  engines},  using 
  either  an  atomized  spray  or  the  vapor  (produced  by  heat)  of  a 
  comparatively  heavy  oil,  as  petroleum  or  kerosene.  In  all  of 
  these  the  gas  is  mixed  with  a  definite  amount  of  air,  the 
  charge  is  composed  in  the  cylinder  and  is  then  exploded 
  either  by  a  flame  of  gas  ( 
 
  {flame  ignition}  --  now  little  used),  by  a  hot  tube  ( 
 
  {tube  ignition})  or  the  like  by  an  electric  spark  ( 
 
  {electric  ignition},  the  usual  method  is  gasoline  engines,  or 
  by  the  heat  of  compression,  as  in  the  Diesel  engine.  Gas 
  and  oil  engines  are  chiefly  of  the  stationary  type 
  Gasoline  engines  are  largely  used  for  automobile  vehicles, 
  boats,  etc  Most  internal-combustion  engines  use  the  Otto 
  (four-stroke)  cycle,  though  many  use  the  two-stroke  cycle. 
  They  are  almost  universally  trunk  engines  and 
  single-acting.  Because  of  the  intense  heat  produced  by  the 
  frequent  explosions,  the  cylinders  must  be  cooled  by  a 
  water  jacket  ( 
 
  {water-cooled})  or  by  air  currents  ( 
 
  {air  cooled})  to  give  the  maximum  thermodynamic  efficiency 
  and  to  avoid  excessive  friction  or  seizing.  Interne 
  \In*terne"\,  n.  [F.]  (F.  pron.  [a^]N`t[^a]rn")  (Med.) 
  A  resident  physician  in  a  hospital;  a  house  physician. 
 
  From  WordNet  r  1.6  [wn]: 
 
  interne 
  n  :  an  advanced  student  or  graduate  in  medicine  gaining 
  supervised  practical  experience  (`houseman'  is  a  British 
  term)  [syn:  {intern},  {internist},  {houseman},  {medical 
  intern}]
