Advanced Direct Injection Combustion Engine Technologies and Development: Volume 1: Gasoline and Gas Enginesby Hua Zhao
Synopses & Reviews
Direct injection (DI) enables precise control of the fuel/air mixture so that engines can be tuned for improved power and fuel economy. This must be balanced against increased equipment costs and emissions, which presents ongoing research challenges in improving the technology for commercial applications. Volume One of this important two-volume series reviews the science and technology of different types of DI combustion engines and their fuels, covering gasoline DI engines, both light-duty and heavy-duty DI diesel engines, alternative fuels and aftertreatment devices and advanced modeling and experimental techniques.
About the Author
Professor Hua Zhao leads a large research group on IC engines and their fuels at Brunel University West London. He has over 20 years’ research experience in combustion engines and combustion flows. His research covers both gasoline and diesel engines and their fuels, with particular emphasis on advanced combustion processes and engine cycles.
