The Design of a Truck Engine to Meet Current and Future Requirements 891229
The design of diesel engines specifically for truck applications
has to take account of both legislative and market requirements.
The biggest challenge currently is the emission and noise
legislation, demanding new engine concepts. Competitive factors
such as engine efficiency or specific power output will decide the
marketing success now and in future.
Alternative designs are discussed in view of current and future
requirements, and an advanced truck engine concept is derived.
