From the Publisher

Focusing on thermodynamic analysis–from the requisite first law to more sophisticated applications–and engine design, here is a modern introduction to internal combustion engines and their mechanics. It covers the many types of internal combustion engines, including spark ignition, compression ignition, and stratified charge engines, and examines processes, keeping equations of state simple by assuming constant specific heats. Equations are limited to heat engines and later applied to combustion engines. Topics include realistic equations of state, stoichiometry, predictions of chemical equilibrium, engine performance criteria, and friction, which is discussed in terms of the hydrodynamic theory of lubrication and experimental methods such as dimensional analysis.

From the Back Cover

THE PRINCIPLES OF THERMODYNAMICS, FLUID MECHANICS, AND HEAT TRANSFER APPLIED TO INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES.

This completely revised text applies the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer to internal combustion engines. Every chapter has been reorganized and updated to clearly present current modeling and analysis techniques. The Second Edition includes new material on yhermodynamic modeling, intake and exhaust flow, friction, combustion, alternative fuels, emissions, and instrumentation. The book contains many wordked examples that illustrate important aspects of internal combustion engines.

WHAT’S NEW IN THIS EDITION

  •  Up-to-date discussion of new engine technologies exposes readers to current engineering practice.
  • Java based applets for computation of engine thermodynamics, friction, and heat transfer are available on the book’s web site.
  • Numerous worked examples and homework problems for student assignment.
  • Up-to-date literature references in each chapter provide a resource for further study.
  • New photos and figures show modern engine components and engine performance.
