Tribology embraces the process of friction, lubrication, and wearin mechanical equipment. It finds particular application forreducing the consumption of energy and fuel, and for increasing thereliability and service life of machinery. As hard-won experienceis built up, the principles of good design are increasingly clarified and become available for wider use. There can be few examples for which this cycle of learning andfeedback is more economically valuable than the refinement of theinternal combustion engine - the prime mover of today's highlymobile economy. Based on papers presented at an IMechE seminar, Tribology ofInternal Combustion Engines should be read by all those workingin the fields of tribology and automotive engine technology. Topics covered include: -Vehicle environmental legislation: past, present, andfuture - Recent developments in piston assemblies - Cylinder bore surface finish - its evolution andspecification - The development of high - stream aluminium tin siliconcopper bearing alloys for automotive applications Developments in camshaft and follower technology Ring zone lubrication: implications for reduced emissions andenhanced engine life Automotive lubricants: today's choices, tomorrow'spossibilities The Jaguar AJ-V8 engine
