Synopses & Reviews
Building on the success of an established series of successful conferences held every four years since 1978, 8th International Conference on Turbochargers and Turbocharging presents the latest technologies relating to engine pressure charging systems from international industry and academic experts in the field, covering new developments in compressors and novel intake systems; improved models for cycle simulation; electro boost systems; industry trends and requirements; turbines; and mechanical aspects such as thermomechanical analysis, dynamics, and axial load capacity.
About the Author
The Combustion Engines and Fuels Group (CEFG) Committee represent some 12,000 IMechE members with interest in Internal Combustion, IC, Engine Systems and associated technologies. These can range from high speed race engines, to passenger car and commercial vehicle engines and to medium and slow speed diesel engines used in rail traction, power generation and marine industries.
