Abstract : This report deals with various performance parameters associated with miniature engines. Performances under low temperature and low pressure ambients are discussed. Design considerations and suitabilities dealing with starting, cooling, carburetion, and control systems are presented. Results of exploratory tests on noise control, as well as recent engine experience on two new test engines, concludes this period report on the project.
