The Simple Model of the Oil Film Thickness between Piston Ring and Cylinder
Piston ring-cylinder is one of the most important friction pair of internal combustion engine，the lubricating state between them has decided internal combustion engine lubrication quality. So the theoretical research to the lubricating characteristics of the piston-ring group, especially the calculation of the lubricating oil film thickness is very important. The oil film thickness between piston-ring and cylinder is studied by calculation method. The calculation program is developed with average Reynolds equation taken the surface topography, viscosity-temperature effect, viscosity-pressure effect, extrusion effect and other factors into account. The position of oil outlet point is preinstalled, the full lubrication is assumed, and the Reynolds equation is solved by full pivot element gausses elimination approach, so the iterative course and calculation workload are reduced, and a great lot of the calculating time is saved, the oil film thickness of full period can be more accurately predicted by the ordinary PC within 30 minutes, which can supply quick effective evidence for next calculation and analysis.
