The experience acquired in developing an automotive gas-turbine engine is traced. Problems of design, construction, and development unique to a small gas-turbine engine and its application to an automobile are discussed. The engine performance and operational characteristics are then described. Finally, there is a discussion of the problems that must be solved before gas-turbine engines may successfully compete with reciprocating engines in automotive road transport.
