THERMAL ENERGY MANAGEMENT IN VEHICLES
Comprehensive coverage of thermal energy management systems and components in vehicles
In Thermal Energy Management in Vehicles, a team of distinguished researchers delivers a robust and authoritative account of thermal energy management systems and components in vehicles. Covering three main areas―the thermal management of internal combustion engines, mobile air-conditioning, and thermal management of hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles―the book discusses and proposes simulation models for many of the components and systems introduced in the book.
The authors also cover state-of-the-art and emerging technologies, as well as likely future industry trends, and offer an accompanying website with supplementary materials like downloadable models.
Readers will also find:
- Material that bridges the gap between academia and industry
- Proposed simulation models for vehicular components and systems
- Fulsome discussions of industry trends likely to take hold in the near future
- Accompanying online resources, including downloadable simulation models, on a complimentary website
Perfect for researchers, graduate students, and practitioners in automotive engineering, Thermal Energy Management in Vehicles will also benefit anyone seeking a comprehensive treatment of vehicular thermal energy management systems and components.
