About the book

Internal combustion engines are used to propel various vehicles and ships, agriculture and engineering machineries, which take advantages of high power density, good fuel economy, high reliability and durability. The wide applications of internal combustion engines accelerate the development of our society and civilization. However, it also brought severe issues. Huge amount of fuel is consumed each year and emissions such as HC, CO and NOx jeopardize our health. Therefore, in recent years, energy conservation and emission control are the two main motive forces of new technologies. For spark ignition engines, downsizing, gasoline direct injection, lean combustion, turbocharging and knock control. For compression ignition engines, high-pressure fuel injection as common-rail injection system, aftertreatment system including DPF, SCR and DOC. On the other hand, new combustion concepts such as HCCI and RCCI emerge. The performances of lubrication and cooling systems are also improved recently. In addition, waste heat recovery as a potential technique is tried to improve energy efficiency. As the progress of theoretical simulation and engineering experiments, these technologies are investigated deeper and deeper, making them possible for practical applications gradually.

This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in fuel combustion mechanism, component design, system analysis and optimization of these technologies that focuses on the most important theoretical and experimental developments in this critically important area.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Maja Bozicevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
