Engine Testing: Theory and Practice brings together the information on both the theory and practice of engine testing that engineers in this field must have available. Organized into 19 chapters, this book begins with a description of the engine test cell, including the salient features of its main types. Subsequent chapters deal with the other main components of an engine testing installation: the control room and the ventilation systems. Other chapters discuss the essential features of a test installation fuel supply system, as well as the characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages of the various types of dynamometer. The measurements of torque, power, speed, fuel consumption, air consumption, heat loss, and mechanical loss are also explained. Other topics of significance include the process of combustion, exhaust emissions, data logging, and statistical analysis. This material will be very useful to practicing test engineers and students.

This book brings together the large and scattered body of information on the theory and practice of engine testing, to which any engineer responsible for work of this kind must have access. Engine testing is a fundamental part of development of new engine and powertrain systems, as well as of the modification of existing systems. It forms a significant part of the practical work of many automotive and mechanical engineers, in the auto manufacturing companies, their suppliers suppliers, specialist engineering services organisations, the motor sport sector, hybrid vehicles and tuning sector. The eclectic nature of engine, powertrain, chassis and whole vehicle testing makes this comprehensive book a true must-have reference for those in the automotive industry as well as more advanced students of automotive engineering. * The only book dedicated to engine testing; over 4000 copies sold of the second edition * Covers all key aspects of this large topic, including test-cell set up, data management, dynamometer selection and use, air, thermal, combustion, mechanical, and emissions assessment * Most automotive engineers are involved with many aspects covered by this book, making it a must-have reference

Die immer weiter steigenden Anforderungen an Verbrennungsmotoren machen auch vor dessen Herzstück – dem Kolben – nicht Halt. Für weniger Gewicht, Reibung oder auch noch mehr Verschleißfestigkeit sind tiefe Kenntnisse über die innermotorischen Prozesse sowie die geeigneten Werkstoffe, Konstruktions- und Bearbeitungsverfahren für Kolben inklusive der erforderlichen Erprobungsmaßnahmen notwendig. Ohne dieses spezifische Know-how kommt kein Fachmann der Kfz-Technik mehr aus, unabhängig ob er in der Konstruktion, der Entwicklung, der Erprobung oder der Instandhaltung tätig ist. Dieses Fachbuch beantwortet alle Fragen ausführlich, anschaulich und verständlich.
