Internal Combustion Engines: Applied Thermosciences

Internal Combustion Engines: Applied Thermosciences 

Colin R. Ferguson

Preference :

The main focus of this text is on the application of the engineering sciences, especially the thermal sciences, to internal combustion engines. The goals of the text are to familiarize the reader with engine nomenclature, describe how internal combustion engines work, and provide insight into how engine performance can be modeled and analyzed. An internal combustion engine is defined as an engine in which the chemical energy of the fuel is released inside the engine and used directly for mechanical work, as opposed to an external combustion engine in which a separate combustor is used to burn the fuel.
