This book contains the papers from the IMechEas Sustainable Vehicle Technologies 2012 conference. An innovative technical conference organised by the Automobile Division of the IMechE, it follows on from the 2009 Low Carbon Vehicle conference, which established a high standard with presentations primarily focussed on powertrain technology. The conference examines the latest advances in technology with a view towards understanding the consequences of carbon dioxide reduction over the entire vehicle lifecycle. Papers cover all aspects of the finite resources available for vehicle production, operation and recycling. Presents the papers from this leading conference Covers life time emissions and sustainability over the entire product life-cycle Considers all areas of environmental pollution in addition to the goals for delivering low-carbon vehiclesAlso visible on the diagram is the adverse influence of air and EGR dilution through less isochoric combustion. ... the order of 5% thanks to reduced throttling, cooling and dissociation losses. ...
