Abstract:

The vehicular ceramic gas turbine offers the potential of at least a 30 improvement in fuel economy compared to todays piston engine and could be made available on a production basis by the mid-1980s. The beneficial impact in future energy demands, multiple fuel potential and lessened dependence on foreign materials are sufficient motivation to initiate the recommended programs. Author
