Engine thermodynamics

  1. Dec 13, 2013 #1
    I need sources such as web sites, books, or videos aiming engine thermodynamics subject such
    as otto cycle,diesel cycle, seilinger cycle(combination of diesel and otto), performance, combustion process. Can you make give some advice.

    I have thermodynamics books , and I have your advice book as well but , I think, engine thermodynamics is a little different from general thermodynamics.For example I havent encountered seilinger cycle in such books.
    meanwhile what is the abbreviation IMO?

    There are many different modifications to the basic Otto and Diesel cycles; some like the Seilinger cycle, which combine aspects of the Otto and Diesel cycles, may not be well known or may just be theoretical in nature. Textbooks usually cover what will be encountered most often in practice; if you want to explore other, more obscure topics, you have to hunt up specialist texts or papers.

    Rest assured, however, that internal combustion engine thermodynamics use the same theory and principles encountered in other situations, like the Rankine cycle, for instance.

    especially I need example questions,solved examples to make practice. Is search for engine lecture notes a good attempt?

    Sure it is. Keep in mind that the text I referred to has countless examples in it. It has worked examples and many (hundreds) of end-of-chapter problems with answers to check.

    Good luck :smile:

    And yes, IMO = In My Opinion

    did you examined other famous books such as thermodynamics an engineering approach of çengel and boles and fundamental of engineering thermodynamics of borgnakke..I examined introduction to engineering thermodynamics,second edition, of borgnakke.when i cant find in it I thought other dont have.
