Internal Combustion Engines is a textbook designed for the students of mechanical and allied engineering programmes to help them understand the principles, working and performance of various IC engines.
Illustrative in its approach to the subject, the book provides solved examples, theoretical questions, multiple choice questions (MCQs) and exercises that would help in concept checking.

Key features
• Discusses electronic fuel injection systems such as MPFI, GDI and CRDI as well as air-assisted fuel injection system.
• Describes the application of nanotechnology in internal combustion engines in various systems such as cooling, lubrication and fuel systems.
• Presents flame visualization techniques for combustion analysis, thermodynamic analysis of combustion and associated heat release.
• Illustrates the concepts through schematics, sectional views and photographs wherever relevant.
• Includes a variety of solved problems along with multiple choice questions (MCQs), theoretical questions and exercise problems.

Online resources
• Solutions manual
• Chapter-wise lecture PPTs
