Engine Testing is a unique, well-organized and comprehensive collection of the different aspects of engine and vehicle testing equipment and infrastructure for anyone involved in facility design and management, physical testing and the maintenance, upgrading and trouble shooting of testing equipment. Designed so that its chapters can all stand alone to be read in sequence or out of order as needed, Engine Testing is also an ideal resource for automotive engineers required to perform testing functions whose jobs do not involve engine testing on a regular basis. This recognized standard reference for the subject is now enhanced with new chapters on hybrid testing, OBD (on-board diagnostics) and sensor signals from modern engines.

The idea of this book came out after five years of teaching the fluid power control course in Birzeit University besides to the long experience of the author in the real hydraulic and pneumatic systems which is reflected on the different applications of the discussed circuits. Most of the existing books in this field discuss the hydraulic and pneumatic systems in concentrating on the design and components of the system without going deep enough into the problem of dynamic modeling and control of these systems. This book attempts to blend theoretical modeling and practical understanding of fluid power systems by using modern control theory based on implementing Newton’s second law in second order differential equations transformed into direct relationships between inputs and outputs via transfer functions or state space approach.

Roy Cox provides readers with a thorough presentation of the topic, beginning with the earliest work on brakes by Frood in the early 1900s and friction studies by daVinci in the 1400s. From there, details about the processes of wear and the components of tribological systems are presented. Methods of manufacturing friction materials are described, and the elements of friction material are detailed—binders, fibers, abrasives, and lubricants. A large portion of the book delves deeply into materials for binders, resins, fibers, abrasives, lubricants, and fillers, providing background on the various materials, their pros and cons, and numerous ways they can be applied to friction systems. Much of this discussion focuses on the compositional makeup and effects of ingredients as they relate to the wear and friction performance of the final product.

The development of new materials that are technically and economically viable is no small endeavor. The risks, costs, and time involved in research are usually so high that only governments or private consortia can bear them. And so it has been with the trajectory of carbon fiber reinforced composites, which are capable of providing the lightweighting needed for fuel efficiency, and the mechanical strength required for safety. After a long development cycle, this material is now being widely used by the military, in commercial aircraft, and in the automotive industry. Automotive Carbon Fiber Composites: From Evolution to Implementation, written by Dr. Jackie Rehkopf, senior researcher at Plasan Carbon Composites, gives a high-level summary on carbon reinforced fiber composites specific to the automotive industry in today’s market and its vision for the next 5 to 10 years.

Electrical and electronic reliability is a critical issue for automakers and suppliers as well as car buyers and dealers. The burden of reliability falls most heavily on automotive E/E engineers, system and software developers, component suppliers, and tools vendors. This book explores ways that the automotive industry continues to add E/E features while maintaining if not improving overall reliability. This book helps executives, decision-makers, and managers to quickly grasp the key drivers associated with E/E reliability in the automotive market. Academics who teach electronics and automotive engineering will also be interested in the book, as well as those in government who legislate and regulate automotive electronics. Author John Day interviewed nearly 50 experts on all facets of E/E systems and reliability during preparation of this manuscript. In addition, he culled information from press releases and presentations.

This book presents the papers from the Internal Combustion Engines: Performance, fuel economy and emissions conference held in London, UK. This popular international conference from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers provides a forum for IC engine experts looking closely at developments for personal transport applications, though many of the drivers of change apply to light and heavy duty, on and off highway, transport and other sectors. These are exciting times to be working in the IC engine field. With the move towards downsizing, advances in FIE and alternative fuels, new engine architectures and the introduction of Euro 6 in 2014, there are plenty of challenges. The aim remains to reduce both CO2 emissions and the dependence on oil-derivate fossil fuels whilst meeting the future, more stringent constraints on gaseous and particulate material emissions as set by EU, North American and Japanese regulations.

Relational analysis, defined as quantitative analysis of the relationships of high- and low-temperature properties in relation to their room-temperature values, provides a useful technique for estimating the properties of similar metals and alloys for which limited or no data are available. This book demonstrates how to use relational analysis methodology to extrapolate and estimate properties of metallic alloys at high temperatures from lower temperature data, and for estimating the properties of alloys for which scant property data exists. Data tables and graphs are presented for a wide range of aluminum alloys. Also shown, is how to apply relational analysis to other alloy systems including steels, magnesium alloys, and titanium alloys.
