High Speed Diesels Raise Industrial Efficiency 630340

Development of the diesel has been primarily in extension of engine life and reduction of internal losses at high speeds, rather than in raising maximum operating speeds. The principal justification for diesel engines is fuel economy and low operation and maintenance costs.
This paper reviews development of diesels over the past two decades in Europe. A technical discussion of design factors and combustion systems is presented. The author touches on various innovations possible in industrial diesels of the future.
