Engineering Fundamentals Of The Internal Combus...

The goal of the second edition of this book is the same as that of the first edition, with updated material in several areas that reflects the ever-advancing technology of internal combustion engines. This book was written to be used as an applied thermoscience textbook in a one-semester, college-level, undergraduate engineering course on internal combustion engines. It provides the material needed for a basic understanding of the operation of internal combustion engines. Students are assumed to have knowledge of fundamental thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics as a prerequisite to get maximum benefit from the text. This book can also be used for self-study or as a reference book in the field of engines.

Engineering Fundamentals of the Internal Combus...

Contents include the fundamentals of most types of internal combustion engines, with a major emphasis on reciprocating engines. Both spark ignition and compression ignition engines are covered, as are those operating on four-stroke cycles and on two-stroke cycles, and ranging in size from small model airplane engines to the largest stationary engines. Rocket engines and jet engines are not included. Because of the large number of engines that are used in automobiles and other vehicles, a major emphasis is placed on these.

Information in the book represents an accumulation of general material collected by the author over a period of years while teaching courses and working in research and development in the field of internal combustion engines in the Mechanical Engineering Department of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. During this time, information has been collected from many sources, including conferences, newspapers, personal communication, books, technical periodicals, research, product literature, television, etc. This information became the basis for the outline and notes used in the teaching of a class about internal combustion engines. These class notes, in turn, evolved into the general outline for this textbook. A list of references from the technical literature from which specific information for this book was taken is included at the back of the book. Several references were of special importance in the development of these notes and are suggested for additional reading and more in-depth study. For keeping up with information about the latest research and development in automobile and internal combustion engine technology, publications by SAE International (Society of Automotive Engineers) are highly recommended; reference ll is very good. For general information about most engine subjects, references 40, 58, 93,100,116 are recommended. On certain subjects, some of these references go into too much depth to be manageable in a one-semester course. Some of the information is slightly out of date, but overall, these are very informative references. For historical information about engines and automobiles in general, references 29, 45, 97, 102 are suggested. General data, formulas, and principles of engineering thermodynamics and heat transfer are used at various places throughout the text. Most undergraduate textbooks on these subjects would supply the needed information. References 63, 90 were used by the author.

This second edition text provides updated and comprehensive coverage of the applied thermodynamic operating principles of the internal combustion engine. The scope of this text includes all IC engines from the largest stationary and ship engines down to the smallest engines used on tools and toys, with an emphasis on reciprocating engines used in automobiles and similar applications. Spark ignition and compression ignition engines are covered, as are engines that operate on four-stroke and two-stroke cycles. The latest automotive technologies are addressed, such as hybrid vehicles, higher voltage electrical systems, electronic valve actuation, and cylinder output. The text covers the fundamentals of fuels, combustion, heat transfer, lubrication, and fluid mechanics as applied in the operation of IC engines. Chapter topics include basic fundamentals, cycles, induction, cylinder flow, combustion, exhaust, and omissions and air pollution. 041b061a72
