Thermodynamic Principles of Internal-Combustion Engines
Certain concepts of heat and work are necessary before the operation of the internal-combustion engine can be understood. It is assumed that the student at this point has had an introductory course in heat physics or thermodynamics. This chapter is intended only as a review of pressure-volume-temperature relationships for systems of fixed mass that explain the internalcombustion engine cycle or working process.
