The advantages of diesel engines are assessed. Manufacturers now involve the use of analog computers to reduce and interpret design data introduced by pure math models or graphical analysis. The data monitored in test cells using strain gages, accelerometers, thermocouples, pyrometers and similar direct reading instrumentation are still used to reflect actual hardware performance. However, test cell results have turned out to be a verification tool for designs developed by computer techniques. It was indicated that the totally insulated adiabatic engine is the ultimate diesel concept.
