  • The automobile has come to symbolize the essence of a modern industrial society. Perhaps more than any other single icon, it is associated with a desire for independence and freedom of movement; it is an expression of economic status and personal style. Automobile production is also critically important to the major industrial economies of the world. In the United States, for instance, about 5 percent of all workers are employed directly (including fuel production and distribution) by the auto industry.

  • An automobile was seen as a simple accessory of luxury in the early years of the past century. Therefore, it was an expensive asset which none of the common citizen could afford. It was necessary to pass a long period and waiting for Henry Ford to establish the first plants with the series fabrication. This new industrial paradigm makes easy to the common American to acquire an automobile, either for running away or for working purposes.

  • We’ve already made progress toward this goal – last year, America produced more oil than we had in the last seven years. We’re taking steps to encourage more offshore oil exploration and production – as long as it’s safe and responsible. And, because we know we can’t just drill our way out of our energy challenge, we’re reducing our dependence on oil by increasing our production of natural gas and biofuels, and increasing our fuel efficiency.

  • The potential benefits are large and greatly exceed the expected costs of improved fuel economy. Cutting global average automotive fuel consumption (L/100 km) by 50% (i.e. doubling MPG) would reduce emis- sions of CO2 by over 1 gigatonne (Gt) a year by 2025 and over 2 gigatonnes (Gt) by 2050, and result in savings in annual oil import bills alone worth over USD 300 billion in 2025 and 600 billion in 2050 (based on an oil price of USD 100/bbl). The Initiative proposes several steps and actions to work towards the 50:50 overall goal and each step will achieve some of...

  • An engine (Fig. 11-1) is a machine that converts heat energy into mechanical energy. The heat from burning a fuel produces power which moves the vehicle.Sometimes the engine is called the power plant. Automotive engines are internal-combustion(IC) engines because the fuel that runs them is burned internally, or inside the engine. There are two types: reciprocating and rotary (Fig. 11-2). Reciprocating means moving up and down, or back and forth. Most automotive engines are reciprocating. They have piston that move up and down, or reciprocate, in cylinder (Fig.11-3).

  • Thermodynamics is an applied science used in several branches of engineering, including mechanical and chemical engineering. At its simplest, thermodynamics is the study of energy, its use and transformation through a system. Typically, engineering thermodynamics is concerned with changing energy from one form to another. As an example, automotive engines convert chemical energy (enthalpy) from the fuel into heat, and then into mechanical work that eventually turns the wheels.
