The "Small Gas Engines textbook" covers all areas of engine theory and service. The book includes extensive information on L-head, overhead valve, and overhead cam engine designs. The troubleshooting and engine service information in the book is generalized rather than manufacturer-specific so that it can be applied to a wide range of engine designs from different manufacturers. The book contains all of the service procedures needed to completely rebuild a small, single-cylinder gas engine. The theory sections of the book give the reader a sound understanding of the science involved in four-stroke and two-stroke internal combustion cycles in easy-to-understand language. They also provide the reader with clear explanations of the role of basic engine components, the benefits and operation of various engine designs, and up-to-date emission control information. Review questions at the end of each chapter reinforce the important information presented in that chapter. The suggested activities at the end of each chapter are hands on and research activities that help the students apply what they have learned in the text and expand their knowledge.

This monograph was prepared for the Agency for International Development, Washington D. C. 20523. The authors gratefully acknowledge the assistance ofthe following Research Assistants in the Department of Agricultural Engineering: G. Lamorey, E. A. Osman and K. Sachs. J. L. Bumgarner, Draftsman for the Department, did most ofthe ink drawings. The writing of the monograph provided an unique opportunity to collect and study a significant part of the English and some German literature on the subject starting about the year 1900. It may be concluded that, despite renewed worldwide efforts in this field, only in significant advances have been made in the design of gas producer-engine systems.

This landmark joint publication between the National Air and Space Museum and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics chronicles the evolution of the small gas turbine engine through its comprehensive study of a major aerospace industry. Drawing on in-depth interviews with pioneers, current project engineers, and company managers, engineering papers published by the manufacturers, and the tremendous document and artifact collections at the National Air and Space Museum, the book captures and memorializes small engine development from its earliest stage. Leyes and Fleming leap back nearly 50 years for a first look at small gas turbine engine development and the seven major corporations that dared to produce, market, and distribute the products that contributed to major improvements and uses of a wide spectrum of aircraft. In non-technical language, the book illustrates the broad-reaching influence of small turbinesfrom commercial and executive aircraft to helicopters and missiles deployed in recent military engagements. Detailed corporate histories and photographs paint a clear historical picture of turbine development up to the present. See for yourself why The History of North American Small Gas Turbine Aircraft Engines is the most definitive reference book in its field. The publication of The History of North American Small Gas Turbine Aircraft Engines represents an important milestone for the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). For the first time, there is an authoritative study of small gas turbine engines, arguably one of the most significant spheres of aeronautical technology in the second half o
