Development of Modern Engine Lubrication Systems 970922

Modern passenger car engines are designed to operate at increasingly higher rated engine speeds with more internal parts (multi-valve engines) requiring lubrication.
The paper presents results of research and development activities to reduce the actual feed rate of the oil consumers to their real requirements depending on the most significant influence parameters. Based on these results an optimization strategy is presented which combines CAE tools with data from experimental work.
In the conclusion of the paper recommendations are summarized to show the optimization potential of actual lubrication and ventilation systems concerning design. power input respectively oil consumption.
