Analysis of the Mixed Friction in the Piston Assembly of a SI Engine 2012-01-1333

Presented within the framework of this SAE Technical Paper are the highly accurate results of friction experiments, performed upon a floating-liner, single-cylinder test engine with a capacity 0.5 liters and crank angle resolution during motored and fired operation. This allows for the measurement of mixed friction zones at the dead centers. These mixed friction zones can result in friction losses and lead to wear in the components in-volved. The strength of the friction forces in any given mixed friction zone is largely dependent on the operating point. This is why the influence of each of the most important operating parameters - speed (rpm), load, oil and coolant temperature - is individually analysed, before the interactions, which are depicted in the resultant engine map, are discussed.
