Development of Cylinder Head Gasket Contact Pressure Prediction Technology
Published May 10, 1993 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
Event: JSAE Spring Conference
A new contact pressure prediction technology was developed to evaluate the sealing performance of metal cylinder head gasket at an early stage of engine design. This technology, utilizing non-linear FEM analysis, is able to take into account not only the structure of cylinder head and cylinder block but also cylinder head gasket lamination, thus providing quantitative relation between contact pressure and sealing performance around cylinder bore.
