Abstract:

The project effort was focused around evaluating the friction horsepower performance of a single cylinder two-stroke opposed piston diesel engine, fabricated from conventional metal components and then with the substitution of ceramic components for the cylinder liner and pistons. The ceramic configurations were run ringless and without cylinder lubrication. Frictional torque measurements were 50 lower than in the standard baseline case.
