    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.
