Providing a comprehensive introduction to the basics of Internal Combustion Engines, this book is suitable for:
Undergraduate-level courses in mechanical engineering, aeronautical engineering, and automobile engineering.
Postgraduate-level courses (Thermal Engineering) in mechanical engineering.
A.M.I.E. (Section B) courses in mechanical engineering.
Competitive examinations, such as Civil Services, Engineering Services, GATE, etc.
In addition, the book can be used for refresher courses for professionals in auto-mobile industries.
Analysis of processes (thermodynamic, combustion, fluid flow, heat transfer, friction and lubrication) relevant to design, performance, efficiency, fuel and emission requirements of internal combustion engines.
Special topics such as reactive systems, unburned and burned mixture charts, fuel-line hydraulics, side thrust on the cylinder walls, etc.
