This book discusses all aspects of advanced engine technologies, and describes the role of alternative fuels and solution-based modeling studies in meeting the increasingly higher standards of the automotive industry. By promoting research into more efficient and environment-friendly combustion technologies, it helps enable researchers to develop higher-power engines with lower fuel consumption. The development of diesel combustion engines depends to a large extent on the use of optical in-cylinder diagnostics. In the diesel process, spray formation, fuel evaporation, fluid flow, ignition chemistry and pollutant formation are coupled in a complicated way. This book provides a complete description of instrumentation and in-cylinder measurement techniques for internal combustion engines. Written primarily for researchers and engineers involved in advanced research and development of internal combustion engines, the book provides an introduction to the instrumentation and experimental techniques, with particular emphasis on diagnostic techniques. This important book, in two volumes, reviews the science and technology of different types of DI combustion engines and their fuels. Volume 1 deals with direct injection gasoline and CNG engines, including history and essential principles, approaches to improved fuel economy, design, optimisation, optical techniques and their applications.

Optimization of combustion processes in automotive engines is a key factor in reducing fuel consumption in conventional and advanced gasoline and diesel engines. This volume investigates and describes flow and combustion processes in diesel and gasoline engines. It consists of eight chapters. Advanced Engine Flows and Combustion Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Combustion August with Reads How we measure 'reads'.   In addition, the book can be used for refresher courses for professionals in auto-mobile industries. Coverage Includes Analysis of processes (thermodynamic, combustion, fluid flow, heat transfer, friction and lubrication) relevant to design, performance, efficiency, fuel and emission requirements of internal combustion engines.5/5(5). Volume 2 of the two-volume set Advanced direct injection combustion engine technologies and development investigates diesel DI combustion engines, which despite their commercial success are facing ever more stringent emission legislation worldwide. Direct injection diesel engines are generally more efficient and cleaner than indirect injection engines and as fuel prices continue to rise DI.

Get this from a library! Combustion and flow diagnostics, and fundamental advances in thermal and fluid sciences. [Society of Automotive Engineers.;]. The information provided in this book enhances readers’ basic knowledge of engine combustion diagnostics and serves as a comprehensive, ready reference for a broad audience including graduate students, course instructors, researchers, and practicing engineers in the automotive, oil and other industries concerned with internal combustion engines. Approximately delegates from 14 countries attended. The Institute was the most recent in a series beginning with "Instrumentation for Combustion and Flow in Engines", held in Vimeiro, Portugal and followed by "Combusting Flow Diagnostics" conducted in Montechoro, Portugal in For any automotive technician/mechanic this book is a must!! Excellent description of how the most complex engine performance systems work, and how to troubleshoot them when they don't. To top it off, the author has a paid YouTube channel (not free) that explains the book page by page, test by test and shows you how to perform them all/5(38).
