Key Features

  • One of few books dedicated to engine testing and a true, recognized market-leader on the subject
  • Covers all key aspects of this large topic, including test-cell design and setup, data management, and dynamometer selection and use, with new chapters on hybrid testing, OBD (on-board diagnostics) and sensor signals from modern engines
  • Brings together otherwise scattered information on the theory and practice of engine testing into one up-to-date reference for automotive engineers who must refer to such knowledge on a daily basis


Engine Testing is a unique, well-organized and comprehensive collection of the different aspects of engine and vehicle testing equipment and infrastructure for anyone involved in facility design and management, physical testing and the maintenance, upgrading and trouble shooting of testing equipment. Designed so that its chapters can all stand alone to be read in sequence or out of order as needed, Engine Testing is also an ideal resource for automotive engineers required to perform testing functions whose jobs do not involve engine testing on a regular basis. This recognized standard reference for the subject is now enhanced with new chapters on hybrid testing, OBD (on-board diagnostics) and sensor signals from modern engines.


Automotive engineers assigned to install and manage test equipment although it is not their main job; Test facility managers, engine and component designers, test engineers, lab technicians, and emission technicians; Graduate students and researchers involved in engine testing.


A.J. Martyr has held senior technical positions with several of the major test plant manufacturers and consultancy firms over the last 40 years. He is now Honorary Visiting Professor of Powertrain Engineering at Bradford University. M.A.Plint died in November 1998, four days after the publication of the second edition and after a long and distinguished career in engineering and authoriship.
