Summary: Progress is being made in improving spark ignition engine technology and in key technologies for turbocharged diesel engines and rotary engines that offer promise of light weight and high fuel efficiency. A number of broadly useful experimental techniques accompany this work. Transfer of the results and methods to ground-based applications seems probable. Modular engine diagnostic instrumentation developed at Lewis Research Center is presented. Its capability to measure and compute combustion parameters is described. Also described are researches of various types of general aviation engine.
