SAE International Book Examines the Impact of Thermal Management on Efficiency of Engines in Vehicles

WARRENDALE, Pa., July 28, 2015 -

SAE International’s announces publication of the book, Thermal Management Automotive Applications.

With new and more stringent standards addressing emission reduction and fuel economy, the importance of a well-developed engine thermal management system becomes even greater. With about 30 percent of the fuel intake energy dissipated through the cooling system and another 30 percent through the exhaust system, it is to be expected that serious research has been dedicated to this field.

Thermal Management in Automotive Applications offers insights into how thermal management impacts the efficiency of engines in heavy vehicles, the effects of better coolant flow control, and the use of smart thermostat and next-generation cooling pumps. It also provides an in-depth analysis of the possible gains in optimum warm-up sequence and thermal management on a small gasoline engine.

Edited by Dr. T. Yomi Obidi, this new book features a collection of SAE International technical papers on the subject.
