A Low Friction, Unlubricated SiC Diesel Engine 830313

The pistons, liner, and housing for an opposed piston, two-cycle (valveless) engine were fabricated from sintered alpha SiC. The ceramic engine was tested without any lubrication or cooling in the cylinder. Data was collected for both the motoring and firing tests for discussion.
