About the author (1998)

Professor Eran Sher was awarded the John Orr Award in 1989 for leading research in mechanical engineering, and the Bergman Award in 1995 for outstanding scientific achievements. He received his B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and his Ph.D. at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. Sher joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in 1978. Shortly thereafter, he established the internal combustion engines teaching and research laboratory of the department, which was recognized as a center of excellence in 1995 for its research and development studies.Professor Sher is co-author of a fundamental-oriented based text entitled The Two-Stroke Cycle Engine, Its Development, Design and Characteristics, and is the author of a student textbook entitled Introduction to Internal Combustion Engines(in Hebrew). Other published texts include over 120 scientific articles. He has presented more than 70 papers in international conferences.
