Abstract
THE PROPOSED STUDY WOULD ASSESS THE VIABILITY OF AN ADVANCED VARIABLE CYCLE DIESEL INSTALLED IN A HIGH WATER SPEED AMPHIBIOUS VESSEL. PERFORMANCE ON BOTH LAND AND WATER WOULD BE ASSESSED FOR A TYPICAL MISSION. THE INSTALLATION OF THE ENGINE WOULD BE CONSIDERED AND WEIGHTS, VOLUMES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS DETERMINED. VARIOUS ARRANGEMENTS OF TURBOCHARGERS AND CONTROL SCHEDULES WOULD BE DEVELOPED TO INSURE THAT THE ENGINE PERFORMED WELL ON LAND OR WATER.
