LIKELY ADVANCES IN MECHANICS, COOLING, VIBRATION AND NOISE OF AUTOMOTIVE ENGINES

The paper outlines aspects of design intended to achieve lightweight, low-noise, automotive engines with improved efficiency, low mechanical and reduced heat losses. The paper is only concerned with 'conventional' spark ignition and compression engines as they are likely to provide the greatest proportion of automotive power units over the next 20 yrs. Fundamental considerations are examined which control noise and vibration, and also aspects of research intended to improve the performance of engines without sacrificing achievement in noise and vibration control.
