Abstract:

Two basic approaches are presented for achieving combustion of ammonia in internal combustion engines. The first approach is one of integrating the ammonia combustion capability into the research and development of engines for the 1975-80 time frame. This approach would have the objective of building and a multi-fuel engine which could use MED or commercially produced ammonia. The second approach is one of converting existing engines by the use of modification kits. This approach could be applied to engines in the 1965-70 time frame, and would appear to require the use of ammonia produced commercially since the MED concept has application in the 1980 time frame.
