Light and Heavy Vehicle Technology, Second Edition deals with the theory and practice of vehicle maintenance, procedure, and diagnosis of vehicle trouble, including technological advances such as four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, and anti-lock brakes. The book reviews the reciprocating piston petrol engine, the diesel engine, the combustion chambers, and the different means of combustion processes. To counter friction, heat and wear, lubrication to the different moving parts is important. To counter excessive heat which can cause breakdown of lubricating oil films and materials such as gaskets, O-rings, the engine is designed with a cooling system that uses air, water, or engine coolants. Petrol engines use the carburation or injection type of fuel delivery; diesel engines use a high pressure system of fuel injection owing to the higher pressures existing in the diesel combustion chamber. The text explains the operation of the other parts of the vehicle including the ignition and starter system, emission controls, layshaft gearboxes, drive lines, and suspension systems. Heavy vehicles need highly efficient air brakes to stop them compared to the hydraulic brake systems used in smaller and lighter vehicles. The book is suitable for mechanical engineers, engine designers, students, and instructors in mechanical and automotive engineering.

As we enter the 21st century, it is more vital than ever to take action to energy and environmental issues on worldwide perspective. The major challenge facing the 21st century is the crisis of global warming, and energy problems are themselves environmental problems. Fuel cells are actively being researched for use as distributed power units and vehicular power sources. As a result of their high efficiency and friendliness to the environment, the early adoption of fuel cells as new energy resource in practical applications is predictable. Conversely, in response to changes in the automotive market, development of technologies for conventional vehicles with gasoline and diesel engines that consume fossil fuels has also become vigorous. These include ways to increase fuel economy, reduce weight and purify exhaust gases, as well as to promote greater electrification and control-by-wire utilization.This book "Light And Heavy Vehicle Technology" deals with the theory and real world cases of vehicle maintenance, system, and analysis of vehicle problem, together with technological advances likely four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, and anti-lock brakes. It covers the latest research and innovation on every aspect of passenger car and heavy vehicle engineering on the one hand, and engine development and technology on the other aspect. This work is also aimed towards studying, compiling, and analyzing the risks of the current ambient technology that is present in modern day cars. The development of sophisticated technologies inside cars make them an even more comfortable and compelling place to be in especially during transform to work, but recent security threats and entertainment have been uncovered with the upsurge usage of new technologies. Eminent authors from science and industry report on specific research projects as well as on the latest developments in vehicles, their engines and other components. Portraying special approach into development in automotive engineering and engine technology, this book will be of essential source of information for a worldwide audience of automotive engineers, practitioners and researchers as well.

As national priorities have been focused both on reducing fuel consumption and improving air quality, attention has increased on reducing emissions from many types of vehicles, including light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty diesel-powered vehicles. Meeting the recently promulgated (and proposed) emission standards and simultaneously increasing fuel economy will pose especially difficult challenges for diesel-powered vehicles and will require the development of new emission-reduction technologies. In response to a request from the director of OHVT, the National Research Council formed the Committee on Review of DOE's Office of Heavy Vehicle Technologies to conduct a broad, independent review of its research and development (R&D) activities.

Exposure to noise at home, at work, while traveling, and during leisure activities is a fact of life for all Americans. At times noise can be loud enough to damage hearing, and at lower levels it can disrupt normal living, affect sleep patterns, affect our ability to concentrate at work, interfere with outdoor recreational activities, and, in some cases, interfere with communications and even cause accidents. Clearly, exposure to excessive noise can affect our quality of life. As the population of the United States and, indeed, the world increases and developing countries become more industrialized, problems of noise are likely to become more pervasive and lower the quality of life for everyone. Efforts to manage noise exposures, to design quieter buildings, products, equipment, and transportation vehicles, and to provide a regulatory environment that facilitates adequate, cost-effective, sustainable noise controls require our immediate attention. Technology for a Quieter America looks at the most commonly identified sources of noise, how they are characterized, and efforts that have been made to reduce noise emissions and experiences. The book also reviews the standards and regulations that govern noise levels and the federal, state, and local agencies that regulate noise for the benefit, safety, and wellness of society at large. In addition, it presents the cost-benefit trade-offs between efforts to mitigate noise and the improvements they achieve, information sources available to the public on the dimensions of noise problems and their mitigation, and the need to educate professionals who can deal with these issues. Noise emissions are an issue in industry, in communities, in buildings, and during leisure activities. As such, Technology for a Quieter America will appeal to a wide range of stakeholders: the engineering community; the public; government at the federal, state, and local levels; private industry; labor unions; and nonprofit organizations. Implementation of the recommendations in Technology for a Quieter America will result in reduction of the noise levels to which Americans are exposed and will improve the ability of American industry to compete in world markets paying increasing attention to the noise emissions of products.

Der Dieselmotor und die Einspritzanlage bilden eine untrennbare Einheit. In zunehmendem Maß gewinnt die Elektronik an Bedeutung, um die wachsenden Forderungen nach geringem Schadstoffausstoß und geringem Kraftstoffverbrauch zu erfüllen. Jüngste Beispiele hierfür sind das Unit Injector System UIS und das Speichereinspritzsystem Common Rail, das mit dem Piezo-Inline-Injektor die Möglichkeiten zur Verbrauchsreduzierung noch mal entscheidend verbessert. Die aktuellen Maßnahmen zur innermotorischen Emissionsminderung, aber auch zur nachträglichen Schadstoffreduzierung wie Partikelfilter, SCR-Katalysator, Speicherkatalysator und Oxidationskatalysator werden ausführlich erklärt.

The 21st Century Truck Partnership (21CTP), a cooperative research and development partnership formed by four federal agencies with 15 industrial partners, was launched in the year 2000 with high hopes that it would dramatically advance the technologies used in trucks and buses, yielding a cleaner, safer, more efficient generation of vehicles. Review of the 21st Century Truck Partnership critically examines and comments on the overall adequacy and balance of the 21CTP. The book reviews how well the program has accomplished its goals, evaluates progress in the program, and makes recommendations to improve the likelihood of the Partnership meeting its goals. Key recommendations of the book include that the 21CTP should be continued, but the future program should be revised and better balanced. A clearer goal setting strategy should be developed, and the goals should be clearly stated in measurable engineering terms and reviewed periodically so as to be based on the available funds.

Der Erste Weltkrieg geht zu Ende, und eine weitere Katastrophe fordert viele Millionen Tote: die Spanische Grippe. Binnen weniger Wochen erkrankt ein Drittel der Weltbevölkerung. Trotzdem sind die Auswirkungen auf Gesellschaft, Politik und Kultur weitgehend unbekannt. Ob in Europa, Asien oder Afrika, an vielen Orten brachte die Grippe die Machtverhältnisse ins Wanken, womöglich beeinflusste sie die Verhandlung des Versailler Vertrags und verursachte Modernisierungsbewegungen. Anhand von Schicksalen auf der ganzen Welt öffnet Laura Spinney das Panorama dieser Epoche. Sie füllt eine klaffende Lücke in der Geschichtsschreibung und erlaubt einen völlig neuen Blick auf das Schicksalsjahr 1918.
