In every field there's a single, indispensable reference work that sets the standard by which other books are measured. The new 4th Edition of the "Automotive Handbook" is the standard for practical, concise and illuminating explanations of the design and operation of automotive systems. Its lucid presentation of both basic and complex automotive principles, engineering theory, and applied mathematics is without peer.
Do you want to know how electronic fuel injection works? The "Automotive Handbook" will tell you. How to calculate the factors affecting tire adhesion and braking distance? The different testing methods for material hardness? Again, the "Automotive Handbook" will tell you. With more than 1,000 cut-away illustrations, diagrams, tables and sectional drawings, the "Automotive Handbook" makes even sophisticated automotive concepts easy to visualize and understand.
Written by the same Bosch technical experts who design and build the world's finest automotive components, this new edition includes both non-proprietary engineering information as well as application-specific material gathered from the engineers of leading European auto companies, original equipment manufacturers, and leading authorities at universities throughout the world.
This new revision adds more than 40 new pages with an index that has grown to over 2,000 entries. Some of the new topics covered include on-board electrical systems, vehicle dynamics control, passenger-car specifications, and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
This definitive encyclopedia belongs on your bookshelf whether your automotive involvement is as an engineer, a professional technician, an interested enthusiast, or an automotive journalist.
