DOT/NASA COMPARATIVE ASSESSMENT OF BRAYTON ENGINES FOR GUIDEWAY VEHICLES AND BUSES. VOLUME 2: ANALYSIS AND RESULTS

Gas turbine engines were assessed for application to heavy duty transportation. A summary of the assumptions, applications, and methods of analysis is included along with a discussion of the approach taken, the technical program flow chart, and weighting criteria used for performance evaluation. The various engines are compared on the bases of weight, performance, emissions and noise, technology status, and growth potential. The results of the engine screening phase and the conceptual design phase are presented. (Author)
