  • The report, written by the Southwest Research Institute and Caterpillar, Inc., was funded by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency on behalf of ZiL, a major Russian truck manufacturer. The purpose of the study was as follows: Install the Sleeve Metering Fuel System (SMFS) on the ZIL 645 NA. This would also include conversion of the MAN combustion system to a torroidal combustion system. Evaluate the cylinder head and determine if modifications are necessary. Design and test several sets of nozzles and two pistons to determine effect on smoke and fuel consumption. Obtain steady state emissions with the 'best' configurationmore » determined by smoke and specific fuel consumption and compare the results with EURO 1 standards.« less

  • Target elements were designed and built to fit into 1.25% U{sup 235} driver elements. These targets had an aluminum -- 0.583% lithium alloy core enriched to 63.5% in Li. The targets had a coextruded aluminum jacket as a tritium barrier and a Zircaloy jacket as a corrosion barrier to the 300 C reactor water.
