    Abstract

    Engine test information was combined with physical carburetor measurements to produce correlations which can be used for design purposes. The correlations were phrased in terms of dimensionless groups of variables. A method, based on the correlations, of extending the versatilit of engine test results was proposed.

    In addition, preliminary results were presented for tests conducted with a rotary engine operating on LP-Gas.
