5.0 out of 5 stars Auto Math 5 Sept. 2012

This book is a must for anyone who has anything to do with driving or building cars.Speed in gears, tire size MPH etc it's all here. The reason I bought this book is that I wore out my 1st copy...pages falling out from continued use by me and my son. Great Book

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was hoping for. 8 Oct. 2012
By zydeholic - Published on Amazon.com
This would be good for someone wanting to build a hot rod, but not for someone wanting to design a system, from bore and stroke to rear-end ratio, tuned for fuel economy. I was thinking this would link everything into a system that I could then adjust for my own purposes, but, it does not. It's just ways to calculate specific aspects or measurements, but not totally geared to design.

I didn't see anything relating bore and stroke to torque. I found no way to calc backwards from top speed down to engine and gearing requirements. Perhaps for someone more experienced than myself, the linkages could be made, but not for me.

Adenda:

Seems I just need to do my homework and link everything together. Perhaps I'll have a better understanding.

I did find the inclusion of formulas for calculating blood alcohol level sort of....I don't know....maybe it was included for alcohol powered rigs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference if you are a gearhead 17 April 2014

As a gearhead I loved this book. I like doing the match to make sure that what I am planning on paper should work. It's better than try, try, try again method. See, all that math in school does pay off in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than I bargained for... 27 Jan. 2013
By Hopper Eldridge - Published on Amazon.com
I have several extensive books on the mechanics of engine design but none were as compact. I ordered this and several other "engine math" books as quick references, one for in the house and the other to dirty in the shop. Turns out one was an update of a previous revision.

This book...and the others, went into the reasoning behind the different formulas and gave some good examples.

It would be a good tutorial for someone wanting to learn about the design of and engine and the limitations in a design.
