Durability-protected, low friction operation of lubricated engine component has become increasingly important in recent years due to diverse forces driven by technology, legislation, and competition. This publication reflects the depth of interest in engine lubrication issues. Contents include: studies on friction characteristics of reciprocating engines; investigation on oxidation stability of engine oils using laboratory scale simulator; wear mechanisms of valve seat and insert in heavy duty diesel engine; computer model of the degradation of VI improvers in engine service and bench tests; effects of aging on frictional properties of fuel efficient engine oils; simultaneous piston ring friction and oil film thickness measurements in a reciprocating test rig; review and evaluation of lubricated wear in simulated valve train contact conditions; mechanism studies with special boundary lubricant chemistry; and more.
