The diesel engine has been recognized as the most promising internal combustion engine available today due to its superior thermal efficiency and reliability. By focusing on engine performance and system integration, this book establishes the theory of diesel engine system design, including the approaches used in its modeling and analysis. Diesel Engine System Design links everything diesel engineers need to know about engine performance and system design in order for them to master all the essential topics quickly and apply the techniques to solve practical design problems. It provides detailed coverage of the fundamental concepts and generic techniques in diesel engine system design, presenting the fundamentals of dynamic and static diesel engine system designs by introducing the engine thermodynamic cycle and vehicle powertrain performance, followed by the critical boundary conditions for engine system design in the areas of combustion, emissions, and aftertreatment.

Energy storage, and in particular electrical storage of energy, has become a very talked about topic in circles ranging from lay persons, in regard to hybrid and battery electric vehicles, to professionals, and certainly by legislators and energy policy makers. This book takes a critical look at the physical storage of electricity in the devices known collectively as electrochemical capacitors and particularly as ultracapacitors. Its 12 chapters cover ultracapacitor and advanced battery topics with an emphasis on a clear understanding of fundamental principles, models and applications. But even to professionals, the distinctions between physical and chemical forms of electric energy storage are unclear and, at times, poorly understood, if at all. The reader will appreciate the case studies from commercial to industrial to automotive applications of not only ultracapacitors, but of these power dense components in combination with energy dense battery technologies.

Voted one of the top ten new design books, this lavishly illustrated book is a colorful account of Le Corbusier's love affair with the automobile, his vision of the ideal vehicle, and his tireless promotion of a design that industry never embraced. Le Corbusier, who famously called a house "a machine for living," was fascinated-even obsessed-by another kind of machine, the automobile. His writings were strewn with references to autos: "If houses were built industrially, mass-produced like chassis, an aesthetic would be formed with surprising precision," he wrote in Toward an Architecture (1923). In his "white phase" of the twenties and thirties, he insisted that his buildings be photographed with a modern automobile in the foreground. Le Corbusier moved beyond the theoretical in 1936, entering (with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret) an automobile design competition, submitting plans for "a minimalist vehicle for maximum functionality," the Voiture Minimum.
