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 uilder/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 whichBaechtel escorts the reader through the process makes this book perfect for both the budding engine enthusiast and the professional builder. Author Baechtel's experience and writing capabilities shine in Performance Automotive Engine Math, and this book will surely be a strong addition to any high performance library. * This book and the formulas in it apply to all piston powered engines. * First new and complete book to be released in more than a decade on this best-selling subject. * Includes information on the latest computer-based engine dyno software, with information conveyed in both photos and graphs.
