advanced direct injection combustion engine technologies and development volume 1pdf

. Finally Chapter 10 provides an up-to-date summary of advanced optical techniques
and their applications to the development of gasoline engines. Volume 2 starts with a survey of HSDI diesel engines developed over the last decade, which sets the scene for the following chapters. Chapter 2 provides an overview of state-of-the-art fuel injection systems for light-duty
diesel engines. The fundamentals of mixture formation,

combustion and emissions from HSDI diesel engines are presented in Chapter 3. This is complemented by a detailed discussion on the effect of multiple injections on diesel combustion and emissions in Chapter 4. Air management and turbocharging technologies are crucial to the diesel engine’s performance and emissions, and they are the subject of Chapter 5. Chapter 6 presents and discusses some advanced concepts for future light-duty HSDI diesel engines. With the incorporation of a more sophisticated fuel injection system, turbocharging, EGR, and regenerative and active aftertreatment systems in modern diesel engines, Chapter 7 introduces the concept and example of a model-based control and engine management approach to illustrate how such a complex system can be controlled and optimised.

In the second part of volume 2, following an overview of current
heavy-duty diesel engines in Chapter 8, the evolution and development
in the fuel injection system for heavy-duty diesel engines is described in
Chapter 9. Chapter 10 gives an excellent presentation on the turbocharging
technologies for heavy-duty diesel engines by one of the major turbocharger
manufacturers. Chapter 11 presents results of a series of experimental and
CFD studies carried out on a single-cylinder heavy-duty diesel engine using
multiple injections and combustion chamber designs. Part II concludes with
a detailed description of the systematic process in the design of heavy-duty
diesel engines in Chapter 12.

Advanced modelling and in-cylinder optical techniques have made
significant contributions to the research and development of direct injection
gasoline and diesel engines. Chapter 16 provides an up-to-date summary of
advanced optical techniques and their applications to the development of
direct injection gasoline and diesel engines. Chapter 17 presents the latest
research results of low-temperature diesel combustion through the application
of advanced in-cylinder optical diagnostics. Finally, the latest developments in
the CFD modelling of internal combustion engines are described in Chapter

This book has been made possible by the dedication of contributing authors
to complete their work to the agreed publication schedule, for which I am
grateful. In particular, I would like to express my gratitude to the authors
who had to endure the extracurricular activities imposed on them. I would
also like to thank Sheril Leich and Diana Gill (née Leusenrink) of Woodhead
Publishing for commissioning the project and their professional support in
preparing this book. Finally, I would like to thank my wife and daughter,
who put up with my absence during homework and playtimes.
