PIFFO - Piston Friction Force Measurements During Engine Operation 960306

Fuel consumption of a modern combustion engine is significantly influenced by the mechanical friction losses. Particularly in typical city driving, the reduction of the engine friction losses offers a remarkable potential in emission and fuel consumption reduction.
The analysis of the engine friction distribution of modern engines shows that the piston group has a high share at total engine friction. This offers a high potential to optimize piston group friction.
The paper presents results of recent research and development work in the field of the tribological system piston/piston ring/cylinder bore.
