into the functioning of internal combustion engines -- Foundations of reaction kinetics -- Engine combustion -- Phenomenological combustion models -- Pollutant formation -- Calculation of the real working process -- Total process analysis -- Fluid mechanical simulation.
The content spans from simple thermodynamics of the combustion engine to complex models for the description of the air/fuel mixture, ignition, combustion and pollutant formation considering the engine periphery of petrol and diesel engines. Thus the emphasis of the book is on the simulation models and how they are applicable for the development of modern combustion engines. Computers can be used as the engineers testbench following the rules and recommandations described here.
