Book Description:
Engine Testing Theory and Practice book by A.J. Martyr, M.A. Plint brings the large and scattered body of information on the theory and practice of engine testing, to which any mechanical, automobile engineer responsible for work of this kind. Engine testing is a fundamental part of development of new engine and power train systems, as well as of the modification of existing systems. It forms a significant part of the practical work of many automotive and mechanical engineers, in the auto manufacturing companies, their suppliers, specialist engineering services organisations, the motor sport sector, hybrid vehicles and tuning sector. This comprehensive book a true must-have reference for engineers in the automotive industry as well as for students of automotive engineering.
