A Way to Raise Locomotive Engine Output Keeping Thermal Stresses in Engine Piston within Acceptable Limit // Dvigatelestroyeniye. — 2013. — Ή 1. — P.15–19.
Keywords: locomotive engines, boost, thermal stresses in piston, thermal insulating coatings.

The work in question was targeted at reduction of thermal stress in engine piston. This was achieved through application of corundum thermal insulating coating to combustion chamber surfaces, and intensification of heat removal from piston crown. The above measures enabled to enhance engine output by up to 25%, which required no changes in core construction materials.

Mitigation of Air Flow Pulsation in Turbocharged Engine Suction System // Dvigatelestroyeniye. — 2013. — Ή 1. — P.24–27.
Keywords: reciprocating internal combustion engine, suction, turbocharging, flow fluctuation, suction system improvement.

Instantaneous values of air velocity, static pressure and local heat-transfer factor in suction channel a single-cylinder experimental electric speed were analyzed as functions of engine speed. A method is offered to mitigate flow pulsation in engine suction system through relief of excessive air pressure downstream of a turbocharger. Stabilization of air flow in suction channel contributes into smoother operation of multi-cylinder engine, lower noise level, longer service life and higher compressor efficiency.

Improvement of Environmental Performance as a Core Line of KAMAZ Engine Development // Dvigatelestroyeniye. — 2013. — Ή 1. — P.31–37.
Keywords: UNECE Rules Nr. 49-05, ESC ˜ European Stationary Test Cycle, ˜˜˜ ˜ European Transitional Test Cycle, lowering the emissions from diesel engines.

The results are presented of a research completed by JSC KamAZ targeted at the development of competitive on-road cars meeting international safety standards. The research was carried out in the framework of ˜Strategy of Russian Federation Automotive Industry Development for the Period up to Year 2020˜. Better environmental performance of KamAZ engines was achieved due to improvement in combustion arrangement and use of SCR technology. Engines in question passed certification stand tests using test cycles ESC and ETC according to UNECE Rules Nr. 49-05.

Knock in Dual Fuel Engines: A Comparison Between Different Techniques for Detection and Control. CIMAC 2010 // Dvigatelestroyeniye. — 2013. — Ή 1. — P.42–53.
Keywords: dual fuel engines, knock, techniques for detection and control.

The paper presents knock detection algorithms based on signals from cylinder pressure and vibration sensors. In both cases knock cycles are identified based on comparison of the individual cycle knock indicator level with a constant threshold or on a statistical approach. In this work two different categories of knock- detection methods, based both on frequency domain manipulations of the cylinder pressure signal and on cylinder head vibration analysis, were extensively compared through an experimental investigation carried out on a Wartsila W50DF engine.
