Seamless Integration of Combustion Pressure Sensors into a Multi-Layer Steel Cylinder Head Gasket 2006-01-1211

The interest in using combustion pressure in engine control systems has initiated development activities to integrate pressure sensors into existing engine components. Since cylinder head gasket contacts the combustion chamber of multiple cylinders, the ability to add pressure-sensing capability is of unique interest.
Two viable multi-layer steel cylinder head gasket design approaches have been developed to fulfill this interest. These designs offer the full sealing performance of traditional multi-layer steel designs, but also include accurate pressure sensors packaged in a total gasket thickness realistic to modern engines.
