Engine Testing : Theory and Practice
The first edition of this book appeared in 1995, and has since gained widespread acceptance by practising test engineers on both sides of the Atlantic.The purpose of this book is to bring together in one volume the large and scattered body of information on the theory and practice of engine testing and test plant design to which any engineer responsible for work of this kind must have access.Since publication of the first edition three years ago, there has been considerable 'feedback', and the authors have become aware that amplification of several topics was desirable. Particular areas where the treatment has been expanded include: computer control and data logging of test procedures; water supply and treatment; combustion air, supply, treatment, effects on performance; drive shaft design; and exhaust emissions and legislation: an update of this rapidly developing subject.In addition a whole new section has been devoted to chassis dynamometers and test methods for complete vehicles.
