Preface of Automotive Engine Metrology by Salah H. R. Ali book
Advanced soft metrology techniques play an important role in improving the quality and function of automotive engines with regard to both manufacturing and diagnostic processes. Advanced accurate and precise measurement techniques are based on two fundamental approaches: hard measurement techniques and soft measurement techniques. Advanced soft computing measurement techniques include a coordinate measuring machine (CMM), Talyrond roundness tester, surface roughness device, interferometric methods, confocal optical microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, and computed tomography technique at the micro- and nanometer scales. Now, utilizing the CMM or the Talyrond machine is a challenge for advanced coordinate metrology in modern engineering applications, especially in automotive and aerospace industries.

Deviation from dimensional tolerance or geometrical features can produce a number of engineering problems, vibration, frictional wear, noise, material fatigue, and failure. The basic function of the CMM is to measure the actual dimension and geometrical shape of an object according to the ISO and evaluate the collected data using the metrological aspects of size, form, location, and orientation. In this book, we focus on advanced coordinate measurement machines and their performance with respect to accurate and precise measurements for automotive engine metrology.
The book is organized into six parts. The first part presents the general introduction, the objective of the book, and its usefulness for academic scientists and professional and general readers. The second part introduces the important industrial subject of advanced soft measurement techniques for dimensional and surface metrology in micro- and nanometer scales. The third part discusses the performance and error analysis methods of the CMM as a new common technique for dimensional and surface metrology in the industry.
The fourth part studies error analysis and roundness determination using the Talyrond technique. The fifth part discusses the inspection and diagnosis of new, overhauled, and worn-out automotive engines using the CMM technique. It also discusses the applications of surface metrology in quality control for automotive engines. New technologies for engine coating and surface characterization are also presented. The last part, Part 6, discusses the developments in the field and future prospects.
