Experience and Development of Turbocharged Diesel Engines in Scandinavia 690746
Swedish-manufactured turbocharged diesel engines for trucks and buses have gained considerable ground, particularly in Scandinavia. This is in contrast to other European countries, where the manufacturing of a smaller series of turbocharged engines has begun only recently. A short description of markets, engine types, and production is followed by a brief description of a turbocharged diesel engine and some of the experiences which lie behind it. Expected development within the truck engine field is also dealt with, especially in regard to turbocharged engines with low compression ratio.
