Encyclopedia of Automotive Engineering.
Description: A Choice Oustanding Academic TitleThe Encyclopedia of Automotive Engineering provides for the first time a large,unified knowledge base laying the foundation for advanced study and in-depthresearch. Through extensive cross-referencing and search functionality itprovides a gateway to detailed but scattered information on best industrypractice, engendering a better understanding of interrelated concepts andtechniques that cut across specialized areas of engineering. Beyond traditionalautomotive subjects the Encyclopedia addresses green technologies, the shiftfrom mechanics to electronics, and the means to produce safer, more efficientvehicles within varying economic restraints worldwide.The work comprises nine main parts: (1) Engines: Fundamentals (2) Engines:Design (3) Hybrid and Electric Powertrains (4) Transmission and Driveline (5)Chassis Systems (6) Electrical and Electronic Systems (7) Body Design (8)Materials and Manufacturing (9) Telematics. Offers authoritative coverage of the wide-ranging specialist topics encompassed by automotive engineering An accessible point of reference for entry level engineers and students who require an understanding of the fundamentals of technologies outside of their own expertise or training Provides invaluable guidance to more detailed texts and research findings in the technical literature Developed in conjunction with FISITA, the umbrella organisation for the national automotive societies in 37 countries around the world and representing more than 185,000 automotive engineers6 Volumeswww.automotive-reference.com
