This paper describes full-scale engine studies conducted to determine the feasibility and compatability of ammonia combustion in various systems. Briefly outlined is the spark-ignition investigation undertaken by the Army Laboratory to learn the potential and effect of ammonia as a fuel and to study the influence of engine variables on combustion.
A study of compression-ignition performance was made to ascertain the ability of ammonia to be pumped in existing injection systems and various means of achieving ammonia combustion were explored. Conclusions drawn from these studies on the use of ammonia as a fuel are given.
