The Application of Ceramic Materials to Internal Combustion Engines 881151

Based on the unique properties of structural ceramics, considerable interest has been generated in their application to internal combustion engines. However, before ceramics gain widespread acceptance as a material for load carrying applications, both their durability must be proven and the benefits associated with their use quantified. The results from live engine testing of selected ceramic components show there to be measurable advantages when compared to standard metal components. This testing has also served to establish the durability of ceramics under actual engine operating conditions.
