Recommendation for good book for IC Engine design

  1. Mar 22, 2013 #1
    Hey Everyone,

    I'm a mechanical engineering student and I was wondering if there was any good book regarding IC Engine design; which includes timing belt design, camshaft, crankshaft, rocker-arm, pump design etc.. a whole in one package that design engineers use for designing ic engines.

    Thanks in advance :smile:

    What does "IC" stand for? I might guess "internal combustion" but would rather you say what you mean, please. After that, folks may feel more confident in understanding your meaning and would be able to offer more meaningful comments.

    Thanks for your advice! newbie here. Will keep that in mind :smile:

    I was just looking for a book or any other reference to understand design of Internal Combustion engines. Most books talk about air std cycles, radiators, carburetors and their thermodynamics etc.. I would like to know about design of camshaft, valve timing, crankshaft, timing belts ( material, gear ratios), oil and water pump design, rocker arm mechanism and design etc... Can you suggest some books for the same?

    Thanks for the clarification. Using the Google search terms “design of camshaft, valve timing, crankshaft, timing belts ( material, gear ratios), oil and water pump design, rocker arm mechanism and design” I found this 62 page pdf file:

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...AV-df_4ogiVCE3fGA&sig2=ydnmSPFnWdvggqEsM2X8nw
    that goes into a lot of the details you asked about. There were several more to choose from. Good luck.

    Wow! Thanks! It was really helpful :smile:

    If it wouldn't be much trouble, can u also plz suggest any good books/ref for the analytical design part? Like theoretical design of cams based on valve timing diagram, timing belts, crankshaft and it's balancing, design of rocker arms and it's springs, design of flywheels etc.. I'm really interested to know how the entire engine works as one giant unit of mechanisms since each and every mechanism depends on the other. So, where do you start designing from?

    Thanks again :smile:
