Advanced Direct Injection Combustion Engine Technologies and Development Volume 2: Diesel Engines

My ScribD subscription again pays off handsomely.. I have been reviewing the piezoelectric injector technology literature, and stumbled across this 700 pages of advanced Diesel engine technology, about half of it devoted to small high speed Diesel engines as in automobiles and with BMW on the cutting edge. Volume 1 is devoted to gasoline engines.

I had not before known of Compressed Graphite Iron casting or of Fracture Split main bearing caps.

The day you stop learning is the day you die. Maybe not physically, but it might as well be.

Connecting rod cap fracturing has been going on for awhile as we all know, but main cap fracturing is very interesting. Any engine is interesting when you think about all that gyration going on and it stays together!! Even the old technology of keyed or serrated cap clamping..
