Abstract:

An assessment of tribological requirements in upper-cylinder area of advanced high-temperature engines was made in terms of critical components and their operating conditions. The ring-liner applications are the most severe since they have high temperature 800 F and large number of sliding cycles 10 to the 8th power - 10 to the 10th power. This report explores and evaluates various high-temperature tribological systems lubricants, materials and lubricant delivery or supply systems for high-temperature ring-liner applications. Keywords Solid lubricants Low heat rejection engines Friction Wear Composite materials Displacement engines Gas turbine engines. Author
