Internal Combustion Engines covers the trends in passenger car engine design and technology. This book is organized into seven chapters that focus on the importance of the in-cylinder fluid mechanics as the controlling parameter of combustion. After briefly dealing with a historical overview of the various phases of automotive industry, the book goes on discussing the underlying principles of operation of the gasoline, diesel, and turbocharged engines; the consequences in terms of performance, economy, and pollutant emission; and of the means available for further development and improvement. A chapter focuses on the automotive fuels of the various types of engines. Recent developments in both the experimental and computational fronts and the application of available research methods on engine design, as well as the trends in engine technology, are presented in the concluding chapters. This book is an ideal compact reference for automotive researchers and engineers and graduate engineering students.
