Vehicular Engine Design, Hardback Book

Vehicular Engine Design Hardback

Part of the Powertrain series


This book provides an introduction to the design and mechanical development of reciprocating piston engines for vehicular applications.

Beginning from the determination of required displacement and performance, coverage moves into engine configuration and architecture.

Critical layout dimensions and design trade-offs are then presented for pistons, crankshafts, engine blocks, camshafts, valves, and manifolds.

Coverage continues with material strength and casting process selection for the cylinder block and cylinder heads.

Each major engine component and sub-system is then taken up in turn, from lubrication system, to cooling system, to intake and exhaust systems, to NVH.

For this second edition latest findings and design practices are included, with the addition of over sixty new pictures and many new equations.
