    1. A steam engine transforms heat into power.
    2. In addition, the heat coming from the engine to the coolant and from the coolant to the radiator is reduced.
    3. Position and heat protection of engine: …
    4. Hydrogen components must not be located near the exhaust of an internal combustion engine or other heat source, unless such components are adequately shielded against heat.
    5. For forced cool-down, good engineering judgement shall be used to set up systems to send cooling air across the engine, to send cool oil through the engine lubrication system, to remove heat from the coolant through the engine cooling system, and to remove heat from an exhaust after-treatment system.
    6. Layout drawing of the heat exchanger for heating systems using the exhaust gases for heating, or of the parts where the heat exchange takes place (for heating systems using the engine cooling air for heating): …
    7. At minimum fuel level whereby the engine is still operating the heat build-up by the fuel pump(s) should never cause the pressure relief valve to open.
    8. an electrical cable, with a heat resistant sleeve, which connects the product to a plug and which, in turn, enables connection to the vehicle’s engine management system.
    9. A brief description of the vehicle type with regard to the heating system if the heating system uses the heat of the engine cooling fluid: …
    10. With the agreement of the inspection body, the permissible operating temperature of heat detectors may be increased to 30 °C above the maximum temperature in the upper part of engine and boiler rooms.
    11. A detailed description of the vehicle type with regard to the heating if the cooling air or the exhaust gases of the engine are used as heat source, including:
    12. "Full Authority Digital Engine Control" ("FADEC") (7 9) means an electronic control system for gas turbine or combined cycle engines utilising a digital computer to control the variables required to regulate engine thrust or shaft power output throughout the engine operating range from the beginning of fuel metering to fuel shutoff. "Fusible" (1) means capable of being cross-linked or polymerized further (cured) by the use of heat, radiation, catalysts, etc., or that can be melted without pyrolysis (charring).
    13. A partition of heat-resisting material shall be fitted between the engine compartment or any other source of heat (such as a device designed to absorb the energy liberated when a vehicle is descending a long gradient, e.g. a retarder, or a device for heating the interior of the body other, however, than a device functioning by warm water circulation) and the rest of the vehicle.
    14. Where prime movers (i.e. engine or turbine) are connected in series (where the heat from one prime mover is converted to steam to supply a steam turbine), the prime movers cannot be considered separately, even if the steam turbine is located on a different site (see Figure 5).
    15. where the cables supply equipment located within high fire risk areas, the cable runs within such areas must avoid routes which pass over or near the top of diesel engines and oil-fired equipment, or near to hot surfaces e.g. diesel engine exhaust systems. Where there is no alternative route, cables must be protected from heat and fire damage. Such fire protection could be in the form of a steel plate or trunk;
