Ok, lets see?
The case is round and two part,
it has a port on each side of the case,
this port is controled by a round sealed rod,
the rod can be slid, from one side, to the other,
changing the side of the spool the steam enters from.
The center disk is a big fly wheel, it has piston shaped fins,
with piston rings on them. these spin in the round tire shaped body of the turbine.
Each space once filled with steam has pressure in it, ti moves towards the bottom of the case to exaust out the port at the bottom. The expantion only hapens when the steam escapes the case, so a small amount of steam in each space around the case, alows for a huge amount of force on the center disk when it seaks escape from it's contained space. This force drives the turbine. If better or greater steam volume conservation is needed, there are two ways this may be acheaved, fist is to have several turbines all on one shalf, the exaust from one feeding the next, and each turbine followint the first with half as many piston shaped fins on it. The second is to have more turbines on the same shalft and to make the volume of each turbine larger than the first, so as to alow for the steams expantion towards its exit, the size change is about the same volumetrecly as you see with the piston size change in a Compound expantion three cylinder marine engine. See where I'm going with this now?
