Handbook of Diesel Engines By Klaus Mollenhauer Helmut Tschoeke

Handbook of Diesel Engines By Klaus Mollenhauer Helmut Tschoeke
This machine is destined to completely revolutionize engine engineering and replace everything that exists. (From Rudolf Diesel’s letter of October 2, 1892 to the publisher Julius Springer.)
Although Diesel’s stated goal has never been fully achievable of course, the diesel engine indeed revolutionized drive systems. This handbook documents the current state of diesel engine engineering and technology. The impetus to publish a Handbook of Diesel Engines grew out of ruminations on Rudolf Diesel’s transformation of his idea for a rational heat engine into reality more than 100 years ago. Once the patent was filed in 1892 and work on his engine commenced the following year, Rudolf Diesel waited another 4 years until the Association of German Engineers provided
him a platform to present his engine to the public at its convention in Kassel on June 16, 1897. The engine came to bear the name of its ingenious inventor soon thereafter. The editors and publisher intend this English edition of the handbook to furnish readers outside Ger man-speaking regions a scholarly and practical presentation of the current state of the diesel engine and its large range of applications. The handbook has not only been conceived for diesel experts but also ‘‘diesel lay
persons’’ with prior knowledge of engineering or at least an interest in technology. Furthermore, it is
intended to benefit students desiring a firsthand comprehensive and sound overview of diesel engine
engineering and technology and its state of development. These aims are reflected in the book’s five-part structure. Part I provides a brief history of the diesel engine followed by sections on the fundamentals, including supercharging systems, diesel engine combustion, fuels and modern injection systems. Parts II– IV treat the loading and design of selected components, diesel engine operation, the pollution this causes and the increasingly important measures to reduce it. Part V presents the entire range of engines from small single cylinder diesel engine up through large low speed two stroke diesel engines. An appendix lists the most important standards and regulations for diesel engines. Further development of diesel engines as economizing, clean, powerful and convenient drives for road and nonroad use has proceeded quite dynamically in the last twenty years in particular. In light of limited oil reserves and the discussion of predicted climate change, development work continues to concentrate on reducing fuel consumption and utilizing alternative
fuels while keeping exhaust as clean as possible as well as further increasing diesel engine power density and enhancing operating performance. Development is oriented toward the basic legal conditions, customer demands and, not least, competition with gasoline engines, which are still considered the benchmark car engine in many sectors.
