For a one-semester, undergraduate-level course in Internal Combustion Engines.

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.

From the Back Cover:

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.

Features of the Book
  • Coverage of the latest automotive technologies, including the Miller cycle, variable compression ratios, 42-volt electrical systems, hybrid vehicles, variable valve actuation, cylinder cutout, alternate fuels, and electronic valve control
  • Photographs, line drawings, and cycle diagrams of many different types and sizes of engines
  • Many additional worked example problems to emphasize important concepts
  • Additional review problems at the end of each chapter, including open-ended design problems
  • Numerical answers to selected review problems
  • Use of both SI and English units
  • Additional historical notes
  • Conversion factors for common engine parameters
  • Tables of fuel properties, air properties, chemical parameters, and text notation
  • Expanded reference listing
