Published February 1, 1971 by SAE International in United States
Annotation ability available
This paper describes an accurate instrument system developed to determine in-vehicle horsepower. Rapid measurement of fuel rate used in conjunction with a computer to factor in the brake specific consumption and other variables produces an almost instantaneous display of developed horsepower.
