This book provides an introduction to the design and mechanical development of reciprocating piston engines for vehicular applications. Beginning from the determination of required displacement, coverage moves into engine configuration and architecture. Critical layout dimensions and design trade-offs are then presented. Coverage continues with material and casting process selection for the cylinder block and heads. Each major engine component and sub-system is then taken up in turn.
