The main topic of "Fuel injection in automotive engineering" book is fundamental process that determines the development of internal combustion engines and performances of automotive vehicles. The book collects original works focused on up-to-date issues relevant to improving injection phenomena per se and injection systems as the engine key components.

Prof Kazimierz Lejda

Technical University of Rzeszow, Poland

Professor Kazimierz Lejda graduated in mechanical engineering in 1971 from Cracow University of Technology where he also earned his PhD degree in internal combustion engine engineering in 1983. In 1993 he obtained a postdoctoral qualification from Kiev Institute of Vehicles and Roads (Ukraine) within automotive vehicle and combustion engine engineering. He has stayed employed in Rzeszów University of Technology since 1973; he got the chair of Department of Automotive Vehicles and Internal Combustion Engines in 1994, and was honoured with professorship in 2011. His scientific interests cover development of injection systems for greening engines and improving their performances. Prof. Lejda is a member of Polish Academy of Sciences and other domestic and international scientific organizations, and is a very prolific industrial and scientific researcher and publisher; he has drawn up more than 365 items including 7 books. He also reveals great contribution to young scientists’ and engineers’ education.

  • Fuel Injection in Automotive Engineering

    The main topic of "Fuel injection in automotive engineering" book is fundamental process that determines the development of internal combustion engines and performances of automotive vehicles. The book collects original works focused on up-to-date issues relevant to improving injection phenomena per se and injection systems as the engine key components.

  • Internal Combustion Engines

    This book on internal combustion engines brings out few chapters on the research activities through the wide range of current engine issues. The first section groups combustion-related papers including all research areas from fuel delivery to exhaust emission phenomena. The second one deals with various problems on engine design, modeling, manufacturing, control and testing. Such structure should improve legibility of the book and helps to integrate all singular chapters as a logical whole.
