This report reviews stratified charge concepts and engines, with emphasis on the important issues of exhaust emissions, fuel economy, and performance. Divided and open chamber designs are discussed. Potential improvements in exhaust emissions and fuel economy are considered in detail. Significant engine programs discussed include those of the Ford, Texaco, and Honda companies. Other variations are described as information is available. Results of programs for the test and evaluation of newly developed and modified conventional engines, particularly engines in test vehicles, are provided.
