Mutual effect of groove size and anisotropy of cylinder liner honed textures on engine performances
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
The cylinder liner surface texture, widely generated by the honing technique, contributes a lot on engine functional performances (friction, oil consumption, running-in, wear etc.). In order to improve these functional performances, different honing processes are being developed. These different honing processes generate surfaces with various texture features characteristics (roughness, valleys depth, valley width, cross hatch angle, etc.). This paper addresses a comparison of ring-pack friction for cylinder texture with different cross-hatch angles and valley sizes. It takes in consideration the mutual effect of valley depth and honing angle. A numerical model is developed to predict friction within the cylinder ring-pack system in mixed lubrication regime and a morphological method is used to characterize groove depth. The results show the effect of different honing variables (rotation speed, stroke speed and indentation pressure) on cylinder bore surface textures and hydrodynamic friction of the ring-pack system.
