Measuring and Modelling of Oil Film Thickness in an IC Engine

    Project Details


    The oil film on the cylinder liner is known to influence the emission of un-burnt hydrocarbons from SI engines. In an attempt to improve our models for calculation of unburnt hydrocarbons in the exhaust of an SI engine, we are trying to model the variation of the oil film thickness on the cylinder liner over an engine cycle. This has resulted in a better understanding of emission levels from recent experiments.
