Performance Automotive Engine Math by John Baechte
Performance Automotive Engine Math by John Baechtel. All the parts within any engine are designed and engineered using the appropriate mathematics to function efficiently and be durable. When discussing high-performance automotive engines, a specific set of math formulas are used to develop and design powerplants to make more power at higher rpm levels and still survive. The various forms of motorsport and street use all have different requirements, but the math used to design engines to be competitive does not change, regardless of the specific discipline. Multi-time author and well-regarded performance engine builder/designer John Baechtel has assembled the relevant mathematics and packaged it all together in a book designed for automotive enthusiasts. This book walks readers through the complete engine, showcasing the methodology required to define each specific parameter, and how to translate the engineering math to hard measurements reflected in various engine parts. Designing the engine to work as a system of related components is no small task, but the ease with which Baechtel escorts the reader through the process makes this book perfect for both the budding engine enthusiast and the professional builder. Chapters are; Basic math and science Engine displacement Compression ratio Piston speed Brake horsepower and torque Induction math Cylinder head math Exhaust system math Fuel system math Atmospherics and combustion math Camshaft math Tools and equipment How to build an engine math spreadsheet Engine simulation and modelling software
