Diesel Engine System Design B-ELS-067

The diesel engine has been recognized as the most promising internal combustion engine available today due to its superior thermal efficiency and reliability. By focusing on engine performance and system integration, this book establishes the theory of diesel engine system design, including the approaches used in its modeling and analysis. Diesel Engine System Design links everything diesel engineers need to know about engine performance and system design in order for them to master all the essential topics quickly and apply the techniques to solve practical design problems.

It provides detailed coverage of the fundamental concepts and generic techniques in diesel engine system design, presenting the fundamentals of dynamic and static diesel engine system designs by introducing the engine thermodynamic cycle and vehicle powertrain performance, followed by the critical boundary conditions for engine system design in the areas of combustion, emissions, and aftertreatment.

It also explores dynamics, friction, and NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness), including comprehensive coverage of valvetrain and piston assembly. This is complemented by the analyses of the first and second laws of thermodynamics on heat rejection and the engine air system including exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and turbocharging, followed by engine transient performance and electronic controls before summarizing subsystem interaction and system specification design.
