Abstract:
The papers are divided into two main groups. The linking theme is the efficient use of energy with which is associated the optimisation of processes in industry and transport, utilization of alternatives to fossil fuels and systems and education for the management of energy in industry and the public sector. Energy and Engines for Transport and Stationary Power: This section begins with an invited review paper, including a literature survey, concerning the sources, effects and control of atmospheric pollution. This is mainly concerned with that pollution resulting from combustion of fossil fuels in power plant for both stationary and transport applications, a topic which has come into much greater prominence in recent times than at the time this was written. Energy Engineering, Management and Education: A series of papers have been given on the philosophy and practice of the provision of educational and advisory services in energy engineering and management. Energy and the Environment: In the work on energy from hospital waste disposal, efficiency in the printing industry and in the secondary cell production plant there were serious environmental restrictions to be considered alongside, and sometimes conflicting with, energy efficiency. This is a continuing theme through the work presented on both engines and energy engineering. Indeed, now that the successful operation of diesel engines on lowcetane fuels has been established, that work is continuing with more emphasis on the environmental aspects. The current political interest in such matters as the greenhouse effect, atmospheric lead, the ozone layer, safety of nuclear power plant and the disposal of its waste has raised public awareness of the potential damage caused by energy conversion processes. In its wake this has brought about a re-emphasis on the efficient use of all energy forms which is the basis of the work reported in this collection of papers.
