"Turbochargers and Turbocharging" presents papers taken from the IMechE series of conferences and covers all aspects of design, development and application of pressure charging devices and their associated systems. The international contributions throughly discuss all areas relating to the turbo industry. Topics covered include charging systems in marine, industrial, aircraft, rail traction, off-highway, truck and passenger car applications. The following issues are covered: tubines; compressors; vibration and noise; flow modelling and dynamometer design tools; EGR and electro-boosted systems; and fatigue life.
