The diesel engines are referred to as maybe the most promising powertrains in the nearest future, if we take into consideration their truly superior thermal efficiency as well as the oustanding reliability. Nowadays, diesel engines are widely used in the most of the commercial vehicles, industrial applications, cars and light-duty lorries. Modern emissions standards and demands of the customers of today are driving diesel engineering to become a dramatically growing applied engineering discipline in order to meet the applicable requirements of designing optimum diesel engines. The engineering population in diesel engines' design is growing quite fast. The requirement for new advanced design theories and professional reference books has become pressing and obvious. This volume presents my own experience and findings in many interrelated areas of diesel engine performance analysis and system design. The present book is also intending to establish some sort of emerging area of the diesel engine system design for the diesel industry. The whole technical process of designing the diesel engine is very complex indeed since it involves so many different people and companies from the original equipment makers to suppliers. A system design approach to set up correct engine performance specifications is essential in order to streamline the design process.
