About the book

Internal combustion engines are the main propulsion system in both light and heavy duty applications for ground and marine transportation. Their role is also relevant in the field of power generation and stationary industrial applications. In recent years, the depletion of fossil fuels, the consequences of emissions and the anthropological greenhouse effect, have imposed new challenges to face with.
A number of advanced combustion technologies have been introduced to improve performance, fuel economy and emissions levels. Research in combustion technology has highlighted the importance of new fuels in reducing the petroleum dependence and achieving high efficiency with low pollutant formation.
The purpose of this book is to collect interesting and original studies on combustion methods, advanced combustion strategies and new fuels able to achieve efficiency improvements and environment compliance.
Contributions in which experimental, theoretical and computation approaches are applied to explore how fuel properties and composition affect advanced combustion systems and how advanced combustion technology can maximize engine efficiency and be environment-friendly are invited and appreciated.
