Four major tasks are summarized: (1) Establishing working fluid selection criteria; (2) Searching for and screening a large group of fluid candidates; (3) Developing a comprehensive data base for the most promising two candidates; (4) Predicting optimum engine designs, one reciprocating and one turbine, involving the two preferred working fluids.
