Summary "Co-authored by a renowned researcher in energy studies, this book discusses the production, distribution, and applications of alternative fuels with respect to different modes of transportation (land, sea, and aviation). Much of the emphasis is on applications of these fuels in internal combustion engines. The authors provide an in-depth analysis of engine combustion, including injection, spray, combustion, performance, and emissions. The book also highlights greenhouse gases (GHGs), in view of climate change and global warming"-- Provided by publisher
