An updated version of the Intake Air Management for Diesel Engines
Technology Guide paper is available for your reading pleasure. This is a top level paper that covers volumetric efficiency and the basics of pressure charging—including turbochargers, superchargers and systems with multiple compressors—as well as turbocompounding and an introduction to intake manifold design.
A copy of the previous version
of the paper is still available, as it includes some information on turbocompounding and wave supercharging that has not yet been moved to updated papers.
In the coming weeks/months we are planning on updating the remaining Technology Guide
material on intake air management—including papers on turbochargers and superchargers—and adding new papers on charge air temperature management and on swirl.
