Download E-books Ottomotor mit Direkteinspritzung: Verfahren, Systeme, Entwicklung, Potenzial (ATZ/MTZ-Fachbuch) (German Edition) PDF

Der Ottomotor mit Direkteinspritzung erlangt zunehmende Bedeutung. Dessen Potenzial ist bei weitem noch nicht ausgeschöpft, Leistungs- und Drehmomenterhöhung gepaart mit weiter reduziertem Kraftstoffverbrauch bei gleichzeitiger Schadstoffreduzierung geben klar die Richtung künftiger Entwicklungen vor. Als Schlüssel für diese Entwicklung können aus heutiger Sicht neue Einspritz- und Verbrennungsverfahren gelten, die den Technologieschub bewirken. Das Buch behandelt die neuesten Entwicklungen, beschreibt und bewertet Motorkonzepte, wie z.B. Downsizing und Aufladung und beschreibt die Anforderungen an Werkstoffe und Betriebsstoffe. Der Ausblick am Ende des Buches beleuchtet die Frage, ob Ottomotoren in Zukunft das Kraftstoff-Verbrauchsniveau von Dieselmotoren erreichen werden und ob substitute Antriebe Hubkolbenmotoren verdrängen werden. Für die three. Auflage wurden Kapitel überarbeitet und aktualisiert. Des Weiteren wurde ein Abschnitt zur Vorentflammung und Flammenausbreitung bei Homogenbetrieb ergänzt.

Download E-books Synthesis of Subsonic Airplane Design: An introduction to the preliminary design of subsonic general aviation and transport aircraft, with emphasis on ... design, propulsion and performance PDF

By Egbert Torenbeek

Because the schooling of aeronautical engineers at Delft college of know-how all started in 1940 lower than tae inspiring management of Professor H.J. van der Maas, a lot emphasis has been put on the layout of airplane as a part of the student's curriculum. not just is plane layout an non-compulsory topic for thesis paintings, yet each aeronautical pupil has to hold out a initial plane layout during his learn. the most goal of this initial layout paintings is to allow the scholar to synthesize the information ob­ tained individually in classes on aerodynamics, plane performances, balance and con­ trol, airplane buildings, and so forth. The student's routines in initial layout were directed over the years by means of a couple of employees participants of the dept of Aerospace Engineering in Delft. the writer of this booklet, Mr. E. Torenbeek, has made a wide contribution to this a part of the research programme for a few years. not just has he obtained sizeable event in educating aircraft layout at collage point, yet he has additionally been deeply serious about design-oriented re­ seek, e.g. constructing rational layout equipment and systematizing layout details. i'm more than happy that this wealth of expertise, equipment and information is now offered during this publication.
