This applied thermoscience text explores the basic principles and applications of various types of internal combustion engines, with a major emphasis on reciprocating engines. It covers both spark ignition and compression ignition engines-as well as those operating on four-stroke cycles and on two stroke cycles-ranging in size from small model airplane engines to the larger stationary engines.Hide synopsis
Description:New. This Second Edition provides updated and comprehensive...New. This Second Edition provides updated and comprehensive coverage of the applied thermo-dynamic operating principles of the internal combustion engine. The text includes all IC engines from the largest stationary and ship engines to the smallest engines used on tools and toys, with an emphasis on reciprocating engines used in automobiles and similar applications. It covers both spark ignition and compression ignition engines-as well as those operating on four-stroke cycles and on two stroke cycles. The text covers the fundamentals of fuels, combustion, heat transfer, lubrication, and fluid mechanics as applied in the operation of IC engines. This student friendly text is illustrated with a large number of diagrams and Figures. These along with end of chapter solved and unsolved problems, a list of frequently used notations, symbols, and abbreviations enhance its value as a text. This book will be useful for the undergraduate degree and diploma courses in Mechanical Engineering. NEW TO THIS EDITION: " Added and expanded topics-i.e., variable valve control; fuel injection; hydrogen fuel; fuel cells; and noise pollution. " Real data from actual engines. " Over 50 new worked examples and review problems-Combine with open-ended design problems in each chapter. " Added and improved figures throughout. Printed Pages: 504..
