Tribology of engines and engine oils details all key aspects of tribology - rheology, friction, wear and lubrication, and all major tribological components of an engine including - bearings, pistons rings, and cam tappets. Contents include: diesel engine piston scuffing: a preliminary investigation; a simplified approach for cavitation prediction in hydrodynamic journal bearings; mechanical degradation of multi-grade engine oils; an experimental investigation of sliding at cam to roller tappet contacts; analysis of roller-follower valve gear; oil film thickness in engine connecting-rod bearing: comparison between calculation and experiment; experimental and numerical investigation of inter-ring gas pressures and blowby in a diesel engine; an integrated design analysis methodology to address piston tribological issues; piston-ring assembly friction modeling by similarity analysis; and fire ring wear analysis for a piston engine.
