This book provides incomparable coverage of both cars and heavier vehicles, featuring over 1000 illustrations.

Light and Heavy Vehicle Technology

Light and Heavy Vehicle Technology, Fourth Edition,provides a complete text and reference to the design, construction and operation of the many and varied components of modern motor vehicles, including the knowledge needed to service and repair them. This book provides incomparable coverage of both cars and heavier vehicles, featuring over 1000 illustrations. This new edition has been brought fully up to date with modern practices and designs, whilst maintaining the information needed to deal with older vehicles. Two entirely new sections of the book provide a topical introduction to alternative power sources and fuels, and battery-electric, hybrid and fuel-cell vehicles. More information on the latest developments in fuel injection, diesel engines and transmissions has also been added. An expanded list of technical abbreviations now contains over 200 entries - a useful resource for professional technicians in their day-to-day work. This book is an essential textbook for all students of automotive engineering, particularly on IMI / C&G 4000 series and BTEC courses and provides all the underpinning knowledge required for NVQs to level 3. By bridging the gap between basic and more advanced treatments of the subject, it also acts as a useful source of information for experienced technicians and technically minded motorists, and will help them to improve their knowledge and skills.

Light and Heavy Vehicle Technology

As we enter the 21st century, it is more vital than ever to take action to energy and environmental issues on worldwide perspective. The major challenge facing the 21st century is the crisis of global warming, and energy problems are themselves environmental problems. Fuel cells are actively being researched for use as distributed power units and vehicular power sources. As a result of their high efficiency and friendliness to the environment, the early adoption of fuel cells as new energy resource in practical applications is predictable. Conversely, in response to changes in the automotive market, development of technologies for conventional vehicles with gasoline and diesel engines that consume fossil fuels has also become vigorous. These include ways to increase fuel economy, reduce weight and purify exhaust gases, as well as to promote greater electrification and control-by-wire utilization.This book "Light And Heavy Vehicle Technology" deals with the theory and real world cases of vehicle maintenance, system, and analysis of vehicle problem, together with technological advances likely four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, and anti-lock brakes. It covers the latest research and innovation on every aspect of passenger car and heavy vehicle engineering on the one hand, and engine development and technology on the other aspect. This work is also aimed towards studying, compiling, and analyzing the risks of the current ambient technology that is present in modern day cars. The development of sophisticated technologies inside cars make them an even more comfortable and compelling place to be in especially during transform to work, but recent security threats and entertainment have been uncovered with the upsurge usage of new technologies. Eminent authors from science and industry report on specific research projects as well as on the latest developments in vehicles, their engines and other components. Portraying special approach into development in automotive engineering and engine technology, this book will be of essential source of information for a worldwide audience of automotive engineers, practitioners and researchers as well.

Review of the U S  Department of Energy s Heavy Vehicle Technologies Program

As national priorities have been focused both on reducing fuel consumption and improving air quality, attention has increased on reducing emissions from many types of vehicles, including light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty diesel-powered vehicles. Meeting the recently promulgated (and proposed) emission standards and simultaneously increasing fuel economy will pose especially difficult challenges for diesel-powered vehicles and will require the development of new emission-reduction technologies. In response to a request from the director of OHVT, the National Research Council formed the Committee on Review of DOE's Office of Heavy Vehicle Technologies to conduct a broad, independent review of its research and development (R&D) activities.
