The study was conducted with the following objectives: To define the optimum gas turbine engine(s) capable of meeting the 1976 Federal Standards on automobile emissions and capable of being developed by the year 1975; To present recommendations for the development and demonstration of the selected optimum engine(s) by 1975 and for mass production of vehicles powered by such engines at earliest possible date after 1975. In the report an analysis and preliminary design program was carried out. First ten gas-turbine engine types were screened by establishing the baseline technology, by carrying out a design Point Cycle Study, and finally by making a preliminary selection of three engine types. Off design analysis, mission analysis, and economic analysis were performed on the two engines which were finally selected. However, the amounts and types of exhaust emissions were not studied.
