ENGINE KNOCK AND MOLECULAR STRUCTURE OF HYDROCARBONS 480219
HIGHLIGHTS of engine data obtained on pure hydrocarbons - part of API Research Project 45 - are presented here.
This summary, the author says, may indicate the degree to which specific, detailed, and extensive data are of use to those who have the responsibility of providing suitable fuels for engines. He suggests also that to the builder of engines the generalizations may be almost equally useful in indicating what kinds of fuels can at least technically exist, and what the fundamental limitations are. It may also be helpful, he reports, in indicating what kind of engines should be built to use the available fuels to best advantage.
