Diesel engine design is highly complex, involving many individuals and companies from original equipment manufacturers to suppliers. A system design approach for setting up the right engine performance specifications is vitally needed to streamline the processes. This book links everything a diesel engineer needs to know about engine performance and system design in order to master all the essential topics quickly; the focus is how to use advanced analysis methods to solve practical design problems. Numerous case studies and examples illustrate advanced design approaches using engine cycle simulation tools. The central theme is how to design a good engine system performance specification at an early stage of the product development cycle.
