ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Heywood received the Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering fromthe Massachusetts Institute of Technology in
Following an additional post-doctoral year of research at MIT, he worked as a research officer at the CentralElectricity Generating Board's Research Laboratory in England on magneto-hydrodynamic power generation. In
he joined the faculty at MIT where heis Professor of Mechanical Engineering. At MIT he is Director of the SloanAutomotive Laboratory. He is currently Head of the Fluid and Thermal ScienceDivision of the Mechanical Engineering Department, and the TransportationEnergy Program Director in the MIT Energy Laboratory. He is faculty advisorto the MIT Sports Car Club.Professor Heywood's teaching and research interests lie in the areas of ther-modynamics, combustion, energy, power, and propulsion. During the past twodecades, his research activities have centered on the operating characteristics andfuels requirements of automotive and aircraft engines. A major emphasis hasbeen on computer models which predict the performance, efficiency, and emis-sions of spark-ignition, diesel, and gas turbine engines; and in carrying outexperiments to develop and validate these models. He is also actively involved intechnology assessments and policy studies related to automotive engines, auto-mobile fuel utilization, and the control of air pollution. He consults frequently in&he automotive and petroleum industries, and for the U.S. Government.His extensive research in the field of eogines has been supported by the
Army, Department of Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, NASA,National Science Foundation, automobile and diesel engine manufacturers, andpetroleum companies. He has presented or published over a hundred papers on
