Today's practising engineer faces the triple challenge oftighter targets, more variables, and less time. Traditionalapproaches are losing the battle, but an unexpected ally is athand. Statistical techniques are becoming accessible and they offer the possibility of facing the challenge withincreased confidence. Statistics for Engine Optimizationoffers the knowledge and experience of the engineers and thestatisticians who are collaborating to use these techniques andexpand the tool kit. CONTENTS INCLUDE: The role of statistics in the engine development process Issues arising from statistical engine testing Practical implementation of design of experiments in enginedevelopment Statistical modelling of engine systems Applying design of experiments to the optimization ofheavy-duty diesel engine operating parameters Engine mapping: a two-stage regression approach based on sparksweeps The application of an automatic calibration optimization toolto direct injection diesels An investigation of the utilization of genetic programmingtechniques for response curve modelling


Engine system modelling; issues arising from statistical testing; multi-objective optimization; applications of design experiments in engine development; automotive powertrain optimization tool; design of experiments for computer modelling; two-stage modelling; evolutionary methods and the use of genetic programming techniques; improved engine design and the development process.
