The application and effects of variable duration camshaft systems to light duty diesel engines

Abstract:

The work described in this thesis was carried out to investigate the application of variable valve actuation (VVA) to light-duty diesel engines for use in passenger vehicles. The background to this was that there was little published on the subject and with advanced turbochargers, exhaust gas re-circulation systems and high pressure fuel injection systems reaching maturity it seemed likely that further enhancement of the air management in this type of engine, through VVA would receive gre...
