Engine tribology continues to be an area of much interest and research, mostly due to the recognition of its impact on performance, efficiency, emissions, durability, and noise. This comprehensive reference covers virtually all key tribological components of engines, including bearings, pistons and skirts, piston rings, and valvetrains. Partial contents include: engine friction modeling; FLARE: an integrated software package for friction and lubrication analysis of automotive engines - Part I: overview and applications; lubrication analysis of piston skirts; and simulation of secondary dynamics of articulated and conventional piston assemblies.
