Rising highly concern about the environment has led to demands for the improvement of the efficiency of gasoline engines. Engine thermal efficiency will reach about 40% by technologies as boosted EGR, miller cycle and so on. This evolution trend will be continuously required to survive engines for the future. In this background, further improvement based on theoretical thermal efficiency of high compression ratio and specific heat capacity should be promoted. In addition, energy loss reduction such as represented by cooling loss and friction is also very important for the efficient and effective improvement. NISSAN’s challenges will be introduced to solve these propositions.
