Abstract The fundamental drivers in the development of commercial vehicle engines are improved fuel efficiency and the need to meet more stringent exhaust emissions legislation. This strategy presents significant challenges in the development of engine components, particularly piston rings. Within the power cylinder, piston rings are significant contributors to friction losses, with the ring pack contributing up to 25 percent of the total mechanical engine friction loss, and a corresponding fuel consumption of up to four percent. The challenge lies in reducing friction power loss, without compromising oil consumption, while also mastering the increasing thermo-mechanical and tribological demands that piston rings must endure due to increased power density, smoother cylinder bores, reduced lubrication, and the use of alternative fuels.
