Introduction to Internal Combustion Engines

Front Cover
Macmillan International Higher Education, Nov 11, 1999 - Engineering - 641 pages
Introduction to Internal Combustion Engines, now in its third edition, remains the most comprehensive text for undergraduate students of mechanical or automotive engineering, as well as those taking specialist subjects. With the addition of new material including fuel chemistry, additive performance and variable geometry turbocharging, the book fulfils the requirements of students and professionals needing a concise introduction to internal combustion engines. It is an indispensable guide to a subject which draws on many areas of engineering: thermodynamics and combustion, fluid mechanics and heat transfer mechanics, stress analysis, materials science, electronics and engineering. - Containing many new problems as well as a separate Solutions Manual. - A substantial new Appendix of thermodynamic tables for combustion calculations. - Additional sections covering new spark ignition technologies, diesel common rail fuel injection equipment and emissions reduction technology. - New case study based on the Rover K series engine.
