This revised edition of Taylor's classic work on the
internal-combustion engine incorporates changes and additions in
engine design and control that have been brought on by the world
petroleum crisis, the subsequent emphasis on fuel economy, and the
legal restraints on air pollution.The fundamentals and the topical
organization, however, remain the same. The analytic rather than
merely descriptive treatment of actual engine cycles, the
exhaustive studies of air capacity, heat flow, friction, and the
effects of cylinder size, and the emphasis on application have been
preserved. These are the basic qualities that have made Taylor's
work indispensable to more than one generation of engineers and
designers of internal-combustion engines, as well as to teachers
and graduate students in the fields of power, internal-combustion
engineering, and general machine design.Charles Fayette Taylor is
Professor of Automotive Engineering Emeritus at MIT. He directed
the Sloan Automotive Laboratories at MIT from 1926 to 1960
