Ceramic Components in Passenger-Car Diesel Engines 850567

Components for diesel engines are being developed from various ceramic materials. The properties of the most interesting materials, the process technology and the designs of the components are described. Experimental results with thermal insulation of combustion chamber components and with wear resistance shielding of valve train components are being reported. The response of turbochargers using low density ceramic rotors is tested and the temperature loads on ceramic particulate filters during regeneration are being measured.
