3.0 out of 5 stars A bit dated, 20 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Scientific Design of Exhaust and Intake Systems (Engineering and Performance) (Paperback)
There is a lot of information in this book but sadly it is now very dated. There is a whole section on building an intricate mechanical arrangement for monitoring exhaust gas pressure during the combustion cycle because electronic means of doing it would be too expensive. Nowadays the reverse is true of course. The core information and data in some chapters is useful for understanding exhaust system design but the experimentation obviously took place many years ago so leaves one feeling that knowledge has moved on. Perhaps of more interest as a historical view of techniques and thinking in previous decades rather than a means of learning about exhaust system design for modern engines.

1.0 out of 5 stars an okay book, 19 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Scientific Design of Exhaust and Intake Systems (Engineering and Performance) (Paperback)
this is a very fundamental book on the subject, however, it's easy for a beginner to follow. it lacks the basic equations and theories that describe the intake and exhaust flows. if you are a graduated student, stay away from this book. you would have learned more from fluid dynamics 101 (if you were awake in class). otherwise, this is a good basic, short to the point, easy understanding book.....
