S A E Conference Proceedings: Proceedings of the 27th Automotive Technology Development Contractor's Coordination Meeting Vol 230
Contractors and project managers working on Dept. of Energy engine programs report on results and accomplishments of FY 1989. Alternative fuels received some attention (five of the 43 contributions), but major emphasis was on improving the efficiency of propulsion systems. The hope for breakthroughs in efficiency that are more than incremental so that both economic and environmental (global warming) concerns can be addressed is reflected in the nature of the presentation here (and in the substance of the recently made public national energy strategy). Contributors report on heavy duty transport technology, Stirling engine systems, ceramic technology, and advanced turbine applications. No index. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
