Measurement of Piston-Skirt Deformation in Engine Operation by Means of Rotating Cylinder with Gap-Sensors 930717
An unique measurement method was developed for measurement of the piston outer surface during the engine operation. The method was realized by embedding a gap sensor into a cylinder bore and by rotating the cylinder in the circumferential direction. By means of this method, interesting data of skirt deformation of a gasoline engine caused by temperature, pressure and the slap force were obtained.
