Tribological performances of elliptic and circular texture patterns produced by innovative honing process
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
Honing is a manufacturing process which uses friction and abrasion mechanisms at a reduced velocity to print a multiscale and anisotropic texture on the liner surface of automotive engines. It enables to enhance the functional performances of a ring-pack system. However, industrial honing basically generates cross-hatched rectilinear textures. This paper proposes new surface textures, generatedby an innovative honing prototype machine, with original patterns (circles and ellipses) at different size and aspect ratio. Then, the friction performances of each generated surface are evaluated using a reciprocating ring–liner tribometer and compared with industrial helical slide honed (HSH) texture. The results show that ellipse patterns oriented at ring sliding direction contribute the most to reduce the friction coefficient.
