    This revised edition of Taylor's classic work on the internal-combustion engine incorporates changes and additions in engine design and control that have been brought on by the world petroleum crisis, the subsequent emphasis on fuel economy, and the legal restraints on air pollution.The fundamentals and the topical organization, however, remain the same. The analytic rather than merely descriptive treatment of actual engine cycles, the exhaustive studies of air capacity, heat flow, friction, and the effects of cylinder size, and the emphasis on application have been preserved. These are the basic qualities that have made Taylor's work indispensable to more than one generation of engineers and designers of internal-combustion engines, as well as to teachers and graduate students in the fields of power, internal-combustion engineering, and general machine design.Charles Fayette Taylor is Professor of Automotive Engineering Emeritus at MIT.

  • Conclusion

    This book brings together the methods, models and formulae used for estimating air pollution concentrations in urban areas.From the Foreword The visible effects of pollution in most cities in the developed countries have been reduced dramatically in the past thirty years. This has been achieved to a large extent by the replacement of most of the low-level sources, which burnt raw coal, by more modern appliances using gas, electricity or low-sulphur oil. The killer smog of 1952 could not be repeated unless there were to be a massive return to old-fashioned heating methods, due, for example, to excessive environmental constraints being applied to the more modern energy sources. It is important, therefore, to judge the impact of a new source in terms of its effect on the pattern of existing sources. One should also consider the environmental consequences of rejecting the new installation and examine the alternatives--that its product may either be denied to the community at large, produced elsewhere or produced using existing facilities. These facilities are probably less efficient and may therefore produce more pollution per unit of product than the new plant would. An objective, quantitative, urban-air-pollution model is clearly an essential component in such a decision-making process. Dr. Benarie has produced a distillation of existing modelling techniques which will, I hope, become the launching pad for many future models. As each city is unique, it will need its own tailor-made model, drawing on the best and the most appropriate techniques developed previously. Agreement with observations is the only real test of validity, because the physics and chemistry are so complicated that theoretical arguments are reduced to the role of assisting in the best formulation of the problem. Numerical precision must always rely on measurement. This is the approach that Dr. Benarie has adopted.--David J. Moore, Central Electricity Research Laboratires, Leatherhead, Surrey, UK

  • A CMOS Monolothic ¿¿Controlled FractionalN Frequency Synthesizer for DSC1800

    A monolithic 1.8-GHz ¿¿-controlled fractional-_N_ Fret phase-locked loop (PLL) frequency synthesizer is implemented in a standard 0.25-µm CMOS technology. The monolithic fourth-order type-II PLL integrates the digital synthesizer part together with a fully integrated _LC_ VCO, a high-speed prescaler, and a 35-kHz dual-path loop filter on a die only 2 x 2 mm2, To investigate the inftuence of the ¿¿ modulator on the synthesizer's spectral purity, a fast nonlinear analysis method is developed and experimentally verifted. Nonlinear mixing in the phase-frequency detector (PFD) is identified as tbe main source of spectral pollution in ¿¿ fractional-_N_ synthesizers. The design of the zero-dead zone PFD and the dual charge pump is optimized toward linearity and spurious suppression. The frequency synthesizer consumes 35 mA from a single 2-V power supply. The measured phase noise is as low as -120 dBc/Hz at 600 kHz and -139 dBc/Hz at 3 MHz. The measured fractional spur level is less than -100 dBc, even for fractional frequencies close to integer multiples of the reference frequency, thereby satisfying the DCS-1800 spectral purity constraints.

  • Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate in the Anthropocene

    Humans are changing critical environmental conditions in many ways. Here, the important changes in atmospheric chemistry and climate are discussed. The most dramatic examples of major human impacts are the increase of the "greenhouse" gases, especially carbon dioxide (CO2), in the atmosphere and the unpredicted breakdown of much of the ozone in the lower stratosphere over Antarctica during the months of September to November, caused by the emissions of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Other, more regional but ubiquitous examples include photochemical smog and acid rain. Industrial activities are not alone in causing air pollution and in changing the chemical composition of the atmosphere. Biomass burning, which takes place largely in the developing world, also contributes in major ways. In the future, climate warming due to CO2 emissions will continue to increase over present levels and pose a major problem for humankind. Current radiative forcing by "greenhouse gases" can, to a substantial degree (up to half), be dampened by increased backscattering of solar radiation, either directly by aerosol particles or indirectly through their influence on cloud albedo, or also by cloud feedbacks independent of anthropogenic aerosols. Cloud and hydrological cycle feedbacks provide major challenges. It is unlikely and undesirable that aerosol emissions will continue to increase, as greater emphasis will be placed on air quality, also in the developing world. However, due to its long atmospheric lifetime and expected growth in global emissions, CO2 will continue to accumulate, exacerbating climate warming and related problems in the future. Drastic measures are thus needed at the international level to reduce the emissions, in particular, of CO2 through energy savings, alternative energy sources, and sequestration.
