Project Stratofire 660094

The reduction to practice of a stratified charge combustion system for automotive engines in the form of a bolt on competitive product was attempted in 1960 and 1961, as part of an all out company program aimed at smog elimination.

Insights of Project Stratofire that led to definition changes, theory modifications, and finally to the project cancellation are set forth.
