The interaction between the piston and the liner in a reciprocating engine is of much interest because it affects reliability, noise, and efficiency. This study evaluated various changes to the piston skirt with the specific goal of minimizing friction. An analytical model of the piston, previously developed at MIT, was used to perform parametric studies of… CONTINUE READING
