About the book

The subject of the book concerns the current state and prospective development of internal combustion engines used as power drives for a variety of machines, vessels, and off-road vehicles. Although these engines share many common features with car engines, they are characterized by considerable diversity in their design, technology and in terms of generated power level. Therefore, the scientific problems, research and achieved results discussed and presented in the chapter contributions for this book can cover a wide spectrum of topics in the field of technology and applications of non-road engines. An adverse impact of internal combustion engines on the environment, including their non-road applications, are still and invariably important. Consequently, special attention is devoted to research and measures toward preventing the emission of harmful exhaust components, reducing fuel consumption or using renewable, green fuels for feeding this type of engines in different applications. The relevance of the presented topics is still important, despite the noticeable strong pressure to use electric power sources, for example in the transportation area.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Gordan Tot

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.
