Authors Abstract
Content
The Author believes that the evolutionary development of today's Automotive Engines will continue and that radical alternatives are unlikely to make substantial inroads over the next fifteen ∼ twenty years. He also believes however that the two stroke, spark ignited engine could become widely used, provided the promising experiments currently being carried out demonstrate that exhaust emission limits and durability targets can be met. Electronics will become even more widely used in the future for management and diagnostic purposes. Diesel exhaust particulates legislation is likely to pose major problems in the future and may well require the widespread usage of traps/oxidisers although such technology does not currently exist.
