What is a good book in Mechanical Engineering in the Automotive field?
I already got the book "Automotive Engineering Chassis System and Vehicle Body" and Shigley s Mechanical Engineering Design 8th Edition 2006 (also getting The Automotive Body: Volume I: Components Design-AD and The Automotive Body: Volume II: System Design) and they do give a great deal of very useful information in overall automotive engineering form engine to all other parts. I just did a quick browse havent had the time to go through in detail. But what I was looking for was a book specifically in Automotive Engine Engineering which outlines all the technical features of a modern car engine. Any suggestions?
as much as possible Im already doing a little bit of studding in the physics behind the internal combustion engine but I want very detailed Technical information I want to be able to fully understand how the components of the engine work and behave so I will be able to accurately model and animate. Im not that concerned with materials and the manufacturing process the engine and its components, tolerances, dimensions, physics, fluid dynamics etc
Automobile and Mechanical Electrical Systems by Tom Denton book would be helpful
