Army Ordnance Center and School, Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD.; Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
This volume of student materials for a secondary/postsecondary level course in principles of fuel and fuel systems is one of a number of military-developed curriculum packages selected for adaptation to vocational instruction and curriculum development in a civilian setting. The purpose of the individualized, self-paced course is to provide the student with a general knowledge of the principles of fuels and the function, operation, and maintenance of components utilized in fuel systems. The course is suggested for use as a subunit in an engine repair or design course. Five lessons cover these topics: introduction to fuels and fuel systems, fuel system components, carburetor circuits, gasoline fuel-injection systems, and multifuel systems. Study texts for each lesson contain objectives, study assignment text material, review exercises, and answers to the exercises. A special section entitled "Fuel Injection" is also included. A course examination is included, but no answers are provided. (YLB)
