Introduction to Advanced Combustion Techniques and Engine Technologies for Automotive Sector
Book chapter, 2020

To resolve the transportation sector issues such as rapidly increasing petroleum consumption and stringent emission norms for vehicles, researchers have proposed three solution strategies namely advanced combustion techniques, after-treatment systems and alternative fuels. This book covers all three aspects for automotive sector. A dedicated section of this book is based on methanol, which discusses about the methanol utilization strategies in vehicles, especially in two wheelers. Second section of this book is based on advanced combustion techniques, which includes gasoline compression ignition (GCI), gasoline direct injection (GDI), and spark assisted compression ignition (SACI). Fourth section is based on emissions and after treatments systems. Last section of this book includes two different aspects. First is the vehicle lightweighting and second is the development of UAVs for defence applications. Overall this book emphasizes on different techniques, which can improve engine efficiency and reduce harmful emissions for a sustainable transport system.
