Experience with Ceramic Materials for Automotive Applications 900404
This article is a report on the properties of certain interesting ceramic materials and on their use in engine components. A critical study is made of the results of applications to adiabatic diesel engines. An outline is given of some experimental results relating to the frictional and wear characteristics of ceramic materials. Details are also given of the effect which a ceramic turbocharger rotor has on the speed of response of the turbocharger unit.
