The advanced-level text completely analyzes and explains techniques for predicting the performance of combustion engines. It offers a detailed treatment of four-stroke engines, both Otto and Diesel cycle, and covers all design and operating features, including; Fuel/Air Ratio; Speed; Valve Timing; Valve opening; Throttling; spark Advance; Duration of Combustion; Altitude; Supercharging; and Rate of Burning. It also discusses two-stroke engines in depth, as well as liquid propellant rockets, gas turbines, free piston engines, and guns. For each engines system, the author explains how the analysis can be formulated for a computer program and includes suitable algebraic expression with which to calculate internal energy, enthalpy, and entropy functions. Additionally, he describes techniques for calculating equilibrium compositions in multi-reaction systems and clarifies the importance of such calculations in evaluating engine performance.
