Description

For a one-semester, undergraduate-level course in Internal Combustion Engines.

This applied thermoscience text explores the basic principles and applications of various types of internal combustion engines, with a major emphasis on reciprocating engines. It covers both spark ignition and compression ignition engines—as well as those operating on four-stroke cycles and on two stroke cycles—ranging in size from small model airplane engines to the larger stationary engines.

Features

  • Presents students with the ever advancing technology changes and improvements of internal combustion engines in the last decade.
  • Enhances students' awareness of the relevance of the concepts to real world applications.
  • Over 50 new worked example and review problems—Combine with open-ended design problems in each chapter.
  • Emphasises important concepts and design throughout the curriculum, and allows students to check their understanding of key content before moving on.
  • Puts the subject material in time context and shows evolution of the processes.
  • Use of both SI units and English units—With a conversion tables of SI and English units of common parameters used in engine work found in the Appendix. Familiarizes students with the research and development of engines found in the technical literature that uses SI units, and speaks to them in the language of the consumer market which still commonly uses English units—particularly in the automobile industry.
  • Photographs, line drawings, and cycle diagrams.
  • Shows students many different types and sizes of engines.
