Finding Patents and Technical Reports
"This report is a brief description of your selected project. Include motivations and background concerning your topic. List and discuss the features of your engine concept which have the potential to provide advantages. Cite at least two (2) technical and two (2) patent references. Sources which will satisfy this requirement may not be text books (or other books), and may not be citations of "web" addresses (i.e., you may cite text books, other books, and web cites, but they will not satisfy this requirement)."
