DIESEL-ENGINE DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE IN GREAT BRITAIN 510182

A WELL-KNOWN British engineer tells here why they design their diesel engines the way they do.
For example, the most important influence has been the high cost of fuel, which is caused mainly by the imposition of the highest fuel tax in the world.
It is the reason why the British use the open combustion chamber, which they have developed to a high degree.
The author also discusses fuels, smoke and odor, cylinder wear, and lubricating oils.
