About this book

The diesel engine continues to be the most cost effective internal combustion engine for motor vehicles as well as mobile and stationary machines. Given the discussion of CO2, the diesel engine is superior to all other drive engines in terms of flexibility, performance, emissions and ruggedness. The intensive search for alternative drive concepts, e. g. hybrid or purely electric drives, has revealed the advantages of the diesel engine for cost effective long distance use wherever high energy densities of energy carriers are indispensible, i. e. storage capacities are low.

This English edition of the Handbook of Diesel Engines provides a comprehensive overview of diesel engines of every size from small single cylinder engines up through large two-stroke marine engines. Fifty-eight well-known experts from industry and academia collaborated on this handbook. In addition to the fundamentals and design of diesel engines, it specifically treats in detail the increasingly important subjects of energy efficiency, exhaust emission, exhaust gas aftertreatment, injection systems, electronic engine management and conventional and alternative fuels.

This handbook is an indispensable companion in the field of diesel engines. It is geared toward both experts working in research and development and the industry and students studying engineering, mechatronics, electrical engineering or electronics. Anyone interested in learning more about technology and understanding the function and interaction of the complex system of the diesel engine will also find their questions answered.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This English translation … provides a good overview of the state of the art of modern diesel technology, manufacturing, and practice. … The 60 chapter contributors, almost all from German industries, provide good coverage of supercharging, fuel, injection systems, bearings, pistons, cooling, materials, lubrication, and emissions. … The handbook is a welcome addition to the existing resources on diesel engines and will be helpful to advanced students and practitioners in the field. Summing Up: Recommended. Mechanical engineering collections serving graduate students and above.” (A. M. Strauss, Choice, Vol. 48 (7), March, 2011)
