Characterisation of European Truck Diesel Engines, Their Lubrication and Future Development Trends 831749

In this paper characteristics of European truck diesel engines with regard to their lubrication are compared with those of North American diesel engines. Comparisons are given concerning the legislation, operational characteristics, characterisation of European diesel engines (engine design, performance, lubricating oil system, piston/liner assembly, valve train, bearings, supercharging) and the future trends of diesel engines for heavy trucks.
Some major differences regarding the lubrication of European and North American diesel engines can be seen, leading to special requirements.
