SUPERCHARGERS and their Comparative Performance 520266
THE author discusses the following phases of superchargers for reciprocating internal-combustion engines:
Adaptation of the supercharger to engine requirements.
Details of the more important superchargers, such as the rotary, radial (centrifugal) and axial superchargers, and exhaust gas turbosuperchargers.
Effects of superchargers on engine performance.
Details on a few typical examples of supercharged industrial engines, such as the Caterpillar diesels for heavy earthmoving equipment and the Daimler-Benz 800-hp engine for fast trains; and superchargers, such as the Brown-Boveri and the M.A.N. products.
