Isentropic Heat Engine

One of the reasons that there are exergy destroyed in a heat engine is the increased pressure in the cylinder is wasted at the cylinder wall (energy absorbed from pressure at piston but loses at wall). If we can direct the pressure to the piston (piston will experience very high pressure while the wall experience no pressure exered), full power will be generated. This condition will absolutely break the Pascal Law which means nearly an impossible process. Just an imagination though.
