The purpose of this contract was to evaluate analytically and experimentally the use of the porous-plate combustor for use in the gas-turbine or Rankine-cycle advanced automobile engines to control exhaust emissions. As regards the gas turbine application, this report contains analytical results on the burner area requirements for the various operating conditions of the Baseline Engine as well as exhaust emission predictions. The design concept of an air-cooled, variable-area combustor for this engine is presented. Operational and emissions data on several experimental combustors are presented along with the fabrication development leading to these combustors. Finally the demonstration results for a full-scale fuel-air mixture system are presented.
