The Design and Development of a Heavy-Duty, Off-Highway Diesel Engine Family - Part I - Engine Concept and Design - Part II - Component Testing and Engine Development 770775
A family of 3, 4 and 6-cylinder diesel engines with na and tc options was designed for use in a range of off-highway vehicles. Special requirements included robust construction, maximum reliability, a hydraulic pto up to a maximum equivalent to the power of the 4-cylinder na engine and low noise levels. Reference is made to the engine design, component rig testing and subsequent engine development.
The engine concept and design are described in detail in part 1 and the engine performance development together with the use of models, rigs and component tests in part 2.
