Analysis of single and multi-grade lubricant film thickness in a diesel engine. By Mark Joseph Olechowski Get PDF (6 MB)Author: Mark Joseph Olechowski. This paper describes an analysis of oil film thickness on a piston ring of a diesel engine. The analysis of the oil film thickness has been performed by using Reynolds equation and unsteady, two-dimensional energy equation with heat generated from viscous dissipation.

An Analysis of Oil Film Temperature, Oil Film Thickness and Heat Transfer on a Piston Ring of Internal Combustion Engine: The Effect of Local Lubricant Viscosity The effect of local lubricant viscosity on the temperature and thickness of oil film on a piston ring in a diesel engine is analyzed by using the Reynolds equation, Cited by: 9.

The effect of lubricant viscosity on the temperature and thickness in oil film on a piston ring in a diesel engine was analyzed by using unsteady state thermohydrodynamic lubrication analysis.

Zhang, in Advances in Ceramic Matrix Composites, Thin film lubrication (TFL). The concept of thin film lubrication (TFL) is relatively new. It was first used in the s to describe a lubrication regime in which the lubricant film thickness is at the nanoscale and is comparable to the molecular size of the lubricant (Wen, ; Tichy, ; Luo et al., ).

The film thickness-to-roughness ratio requires the calculation of oil film thickness. The lubrication parameter can be used in situations where the oil film thickness is not a priori known. This situation matches the need of engine system design where the oil film thickness is not known in the level-1 and level-2 friction models.

In merchant marine terminology as shown in Table 2, diesel engine lubricants are classified as follows: 1. Cylinder oils 2. System oils for crankcase lubrication of crosshead engines 3.

Motor oil, engine oil, or engine lubricant is any of various substances comprising base oils enhanced with various additives, particularly antiwear additive in addition to detergents, dispersants and, for multi-grade oils, viscosity index oil is used for lubrication of internal combustion main function of motor oil is to reduce friction and wear on.

Therefore, an oil to effectively lubricate, it has to maintain enough film thickness all throughout its operating range of temperature, cold and hot condition.

By using a multi-grade oil, it acts to lubricate properly for both hot and cold conditions, in other words, wider range of operating temperature. Reynolds boundary conditions have been modified for non-cavitation zones. The pressure distribution along the ring thickness and the lubricant film thickness are determined for each crank angle degree.

Predicted friction force is presented for the first compression ring of a typical diesel engine as a function of crank angle by:   Diesel Engine Lubrication And Lube Oil Contamination Control Identify contamination Identify wear and its possible sources Deploy appropriate contamination control guards Move your maintenance practices toward a more condition-based-approach 3.

Introduction Lubricating oil is imperative for the correct function of an engine. This is why it is best to use the proper oil viscosity recommended by the auto manufacturer as it will protect hot and at cold start ups. Obviously a 10W motor oil won't have the film strength to prevent engine wear at full operating temperature like a 5W, 10W or 5W motor oil.

of the In-service Oil Analysis Handbook. It has been a few years since the publication of the first edition of Spectro Scientific’s In-Service Oil Analysis Handbook. Our original goal was to compile a comprehensive reference book of common in-service oil analysis techniques to help readers understand and choose the right technique and.

A custom-built 1/10 scale, flexible-fuel, single-cylinder crosshead marine diesel research engine, dubbed the Enterprise, was designed and built as a platform for conducting marine lubricant research.

The engine design was focused on maintaining lubricant boundary conditions similar those of full-scale engines.

SWEPCO Premier Engine Oil is a high performance synthetic, multigrade, long drain engine oil, especially formulated to provide industry leading protection from heat, wear and contaminants.

Soot, which is composed primarily of black carbon, turns engine oil black. Have been made obsolete for use in any modern diesel by multi-weight or Multi Grade diesels. Because diesel engine oil contains a substantial amount of soot, they require. Diesel Engine Lubricants. Abstract: Diesel engine lubricants are composed of base oil, viscosity modifier and an additive package that may include antioxidants, pour point depressants, detergents and dispersants.

The viscosity of engine oil. lubricant viscosity and the surface roughness []. The influences have been condensed using the concept of specific film thickness, also often termed the “lambda ratio”. The specific film thickness is a ratio of the lubricating oil film thickness to the composite surface roughness of the two contacting Size: 1MB.

The cost of getting an API certification for a single S motor oil formulation is from $, to $, The cost for C certification is $, to $, Once testing is complete, the oil can be licensed for $ per year, plus a small royalty fee.

A quality characteristic of motor oil is, whether the oil is a single or a multi-grade oil. Normal oil is inherently subject to certain chemical and physical properties.

One is that the condition of the oil is highly dependent on the temperature: the more warmer it is, the thinner and more flexible is the oil. This research is the continued analysis of the lubricant film thickness in the piston ring region of a small production diesel engine.

Olechowski [11 and Hoult, Wong, and Azzola [5] have recently investigated the various rheological effects of single and multi-grade lubricants in the top ring region. This project investigates the.

The lubrication of bearings for machine tools usually requires mineral oils of ISO VG 46 or for fast – running grinding spindles with plain bearings, mineral oils of ISO VG 5 or 7 are required, dependent on bearing Cited by: 5.

In addition to film thickness measurements, traction coefficients can be measured at any slide/roll ratio from pure rolling up to %. Principle The instrument measures the lubricant film thickness properties in the contact formed between a ¾“ (mm) diameter steel ball and a rotating glass disc by optical interferometry.

Automotive industries made a paradigm shift in selection of viscometrics of engine lubricant, from higher to lower viscosity grade, for improving fuel economy of vehicles. Engine fuel consumption is influenced by friction between the various engine components. Engine friction power (FP) of a direct injection diesel engine is calculated from the measured value of in Cited by: 3.

thickness analytical methods [7]. This approach was used here to demonstrate that the film thickness at the inner ring is approximately 40% of the total, and the film thickness at the outer ring is the remaining 60%.

Therefore, in our final analysis will treat the inner ring film thickness as being approximately 40% of the total film Size: KB.

A 10W oil will perform like an SAE 10W oil at lower temperatures, while the 5W will perform more like an SAE 5W oil. Most engines require multi-grade oil because of extreme engine temperatures (cold or hot). However, many pieces of equipment (such as lawn mower engines) can easily use an oil with a single grade of oil (such as SAE).Author: Noria Corporation.

The effects of engine speed, load and oil viscosity on the measured and calculated minimum oil film thicknesses are investigated at to rpm. From the comparison between the measured and calculated MOFT, it is found that a qualitative similarity exists between them, but in all cases, the measured MOFT are smaller than those by: 7.

lubricant and engine effects, deductions based upon such measurements are suspect. The laser fluorescence technique developed in our laboratory at MIT [6, 7], offers a different type of data, one in which the detailed lubricant film thickness distribution is measured in a running engine.

).In boundary lubrication, molecules are absorbed on solid surfaces of a tribo-pair and form a mono-molecular absorbed layer as described by Hardy () as shown in Fig. the lubricant film thickness in the contact region is in a range from a few nanometers to tens of nanometers, different. I'm trying to find out the root reason why Detroit Diesel two stroke engines require, to this day, mono-grade engine oil, normally straight 40 weight.

Empirical evidience, supported by recommendations from DD, is that the engines last longer between rebuilds using straight weight oil in normal service.
