Engine Combustion Book from SAE International Explores Science of Successful Pressure Measurement and Analysis

WARRENDALE, Pa., Nov. 16, 2011 - Engine Combustion: Pressure Measurement and Analysis, a complete guide to the science of accurate engine combustion, is available from SAE International.

Written by David R. Rogers, Engine Combustion: Pressure Measurement and Analysis is a comprehensive handbook for technicians and engineers involved in engine testing and development. In addition, it’s a valuable reference for scientists and students who wish to understand combustion measurement processes and techniques.

Rogers explains that combustion pressure management was once a field for specialists. However, as the price of combustion pressure measurement equipment has dropped, the field has become less specialized and engine combustion measurement has become a standard task for engine engineers and technologists. The book assists those who are not specialists in this area and need to accumulate knowledge quickly.

Rogers said a lack of standardization for engine combustion tests has caused problems in securing accurate combustion pressure measurement, which directly influences overall engine performance, fuel consumption, and exhaust emissions.

Engine Combustion: Pressure Measurement and Analysis provides practical information on measuring, analyzing and qualifying combustion data, as well as details on hardware and software requirements and system components.

Readers will learn:

  • The features and functions of equipment;  
  • Best practices for successful measurements; and  
  • How to recognize and diagnose problems.
