Automotive Steam Power - 1973 730617

After a brief review of early steam car performance, the results of current research are summarized with emphasis on problems such as emissions, safety, cold-start delay, freezing, and choice of working fluid, control systems and fuel consumption. It is concluded that a Rankine cycle powerplant can meet 1976 federal standards for emission. Alternate fluids for steam engines are discussed, but water is still competitive, as is the piston engine.
