Valve Train: Systems and Components: 2013

Valve train systems control the gas exchange in a combustion engine, which means that they represent a significant opportunity for optimizing the combustion process. Since they draw energy from the crankshaft, an efficient valve train contributes greatly to improving overall efficiency. The components of the valve train system are subjected to high loads. In addition to wear due to mechanical forces increasing combustion pressures and temperatures, in particular, place greater demands on the materials and heat dissipation of components on the combustion side. This technical book clearly and thoroughly presents a holistic understanding of the valve train system.
