Design Techniques for Engine Manifolds: Wave Action Methods for IC Engines

Front Cover
Professional Engineering Pub. Limited, 1999 - Exhaust systems - 364 pages
Reports on the significant developments over the past two decades in designing manifolds for internal combustion engines, and shows how mature the calculation of one-dimensional, unsteady flow has become. Particularly describes how many of the limitations of the Method of Characteristics, used to calculate the unsteady flow of the compressible gases in the engine, can be removed by applying finite volume techniques, resulting in more accurate simulations and allowing more rapid and robust calculation. Helps practicing and student engineers understand how wave action in the inlet and exhaust manifolds of reciprocating engines affects the performance of the engine. Distributed in the US by ASME.
