Turbocharging is already a key part of heavy duty diesel engine technology. However, the need to meet emissions regulations is rapidly driving the use of turbo diesel and turbo gasoline engines for passenger vehicles. Turbocharged diesel engines improve the fuel economy of baseline gasoline engine powered passenger vehicles by 30-50%. Turbocharging is critical for diesel engine performance and for emissions control through a well designed exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. In gasoline engines, turbocharging enables downsizing which improves fuel economy by 5-20%.

Engine valvetrain systems have become more capable and increasingly more compact in the quest to improve efficiency. The developments parallel the advancements in other key engine components such as fuel injection or spark systems, turbocharging, aftertreatment, base engine and controls. While the gasoline sector has seen a steady rise in the adoption of Variable Valve Actuation (VVA), Diesel systems have lagged behind and only a few systems have seen production. The level of VVA activity however in the Diesel sector is beginning to increase as tighter regulations of CO2 emissions approach.

Societal and regulatory demands to lower emissions and increase engine-operating efficiencies have forced engine designers to adopt new technologies and control strategies. This has resulted in dramatic evolutions of the technology of internal combustion engines and their support systems in recent years. These operational management strategies have evolved into more robust control systems and sensory packages, which in turn has driven the need for more accurate and specific information being communicated between the various systems found within a modern automobile.

The Indian automotive sector is experiencing a major shift, focusing predominantly towards the levels of quality, reliability and comfort delivered to the customer. Since the entry of global players into the market, there is a rising demand for timely product launches with utmost priority to reliability. In any vehicle, suspension plays a critical role in transferring the road inputs onto the vehicle components, therefore, responsible for both ride comfort and load transfer. Engine mount, being an integral part of this system, takes care of isolating the inertial forces between the engine and the chassis. This project details on how testing can aid in reducing the launch time as well as ensuring desired degree of reliability. It proposes a methodology to formulate a life model for the engine mount considering various combinations of predictor parameters affecting its performance over its design life.

Now-a-days there is a trend of engine downsizing driven by emission norms and a race to deliver engine power and torque similar to that being developed by multi cylinder engines. Thus, engines are running on higher temperatures making the engine cooling system vulnerable. Degassing tank is one of the solutions to resolve the problems pertaining to engine cooling system. The main function of degassing tank also known as de-aeration tank, hot bottle, expansion tank is to remove the entrapped gases/air from the engine cooling system. This paper discusses the design case study for such a degassing tank on one of the SUV vehicle. Keywords- Degassing tank, De-aeration tank, Hot Bottle, Expansion tank, Coolant Recovery system

Based on the real driving condition, this paper investigated the underhood flow field and temperature distribution of a heavy commercial vehicle by utilizing CFD commercial code FLUENT. To guarantee the authenticity of simulation , three kinds of driving conditions namely idling,peak torque, rated power were considered ,detailed computational model including front bumper, grill, cabin, all the underhood and underbody components, taking into account all heat transfer phenomenon including conduction, convection ,radiation in the engine compartment. By analyzing the velocity contour in different sections, underhood temperature field distribution and inlet temperature of condenser, intercooler and radiator, we found that serious air-recirculation existed in engine compartment under idling and peak torque conditions and the temperature of some components have exceeded its normal range in peak torque condition.

Turbocharger technology can improve the vehicle dynamic performance and fuel economy effectively and is applied widely nowadays. But because of the pervasive existent of turbocharger delay effect, acceleration delay and insufficient combustion are its disadvantages. By collecting high pressure air which generates due to the inertia of the turbine in the intake passage when the vehicle slows down, air is supplied for the shortage in the intake passage while the vehicle is accelerating ,which can reduce turbocharger delay effect effectively. However, turbocharger delay effect changes a little at high speed and low speed which is subjected to the air inflation and short air-release time.
