Internal Combustion Engine Fundamentals, Second Edition

by: John B. Heywood


Abstract: 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

John B. Heywood has been a faculty member at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1968, where he was Sun Jae Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Sloan Automotive Laboratory. His interests are focused on internal combustion engines and their fuels, and on broader studies of future transportation technology and policy, fuel supply options, and vehicular air pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions. He has published over 230 papers in the technical literature, and is the author of five books, including this text. Dr. Heywood is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the British Institution of Mechanical Engineers, and the Society of Automotive Engineers. He has received many awards for his work, including the 1996 U.S. Department of Transportation Award for the Advancement of Motor Vehicle Research and Development, the 1999 Soichiro Honda Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the 2008 Society of Automotive Engineers Award for Contributions to Automotive Policy. He is also a Member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Heywood has a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from MIT (1965), a Sc.D. from Cambridge University for his research contributions (1983), an honorary Doctor of Technology degree from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden (1999), and an honorary D.Sc. from City University, London (2004).
