Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This English translation . provides a good overview of the state of the art of modern diesel technology, manufacturing, and practice. . The 60 chapter contributors, almost all from German industries, provide good coverage of supercharging, fuel, injection systems, bearings, pistons, cooling, materials, lubrication, and emissions. . The handbook is a welcome addition to the existing resources on diesel engines and will be helpful to advanced students and practitioners in the field. Summing Up: Recommended. Mechanical engineering collections serving graduate students and above." (A. M. Strauss, Choice, Vol. 48 (7), March, 2011)
