The long-awaited revision of the most respected resource on Internal Combustion Engines --covering the basics through advanced operation of spark-ignition and diesel engines.

Written by one of the most recognized and highly regarded names in internal combustion engines this trusted educational resource and professional reference covers the key physical and chemical processes that govern internal combustion engine operation and design. Internal Combustion Engine Fundamentals, Second Edition, has been thoroughly revised to cover recent advances, including performance enhancement, efficiency improvements, and emission reduction technologies. Highly illustrated and cross referenced, the book includes discussions of these engines’ environmental impacts and requirements. You will get complete explanations of spark-ignition and compression-ignition (diesel) engine operating characteristics as well as of engine flow and combustion phenomena and fuel requirements. 

Coverage includes:
Engine types and their operation
Engine design and operating parameters
Thermochemistry of fuel-air mixtures
Properties of working fluids
Ideal models of engine cycles
Gas exchange processes
Mixture preparation in spark-ignition engines
Charge motion within the cylinder
Combustion in spark-ignition engines
Combustion in compression-ignition engines
Pollutant formation and control
Engine heat transfer
Engine friction and lubrication
Modeling real engine flow and combustion processes
Engine operating characteristics
