FLAME PROPAGATION, AUTOIGNITION AND COMBUSTION IN ALCOHOL-PETROLEUM-AIR MIXTURES AND OTHER ALTERNATIVE FUELS. QUARTERLY PROGRESS REPORT NO. 2, NOVEMBER 1, 1977--JANUARY 31, 1978

Progress is reported for research efforts involving three major projects on alternative automotive fuels. These projects are: (1) the development of a modified cetane scale for rating the autoignition properties of low ignition quality fuels; (2) the determination of the autoignition and combustion characteristics of alternative fuels in diesel engines; and (3) the development of a correlation between the flame speed and the different properties of the fuel-air mixture in gasoline engines (gasoline, gasoline-methanol blends, etc.).
