About this book


This book is intended to serve as a comprehensive reference on the design and development of diesel engines. It talks about combustion and gas exchange processes with important references to emissions and fuel consumption and descriptions of the design of various parts of an engine, its coolants and lubricants, and emission control and optimization techniques. Some of the topics covered are turbocharging and supercharging, noise and vibrational control, emission and combustion control, and the future of heavy duty diesel engines. This volume will be of interest to researchers and professionals working in this area.
