Abstract

Numerical simulations of the ring/liner contact in which the liner exhibits a periodic texture (pockets) are reported. The mass-conservative Elrod-Adams model is used to treat cavitation, and the dynamics of the ring is considered with a linear mass that corresponds to actual engine compression rings. The results, computed at a Siribeck number of 10(-3) and thus in the hydrodynamic lubrication regime, show that the ring profile determines whether pocketing is beneficial or not. For strongly non-conformal contacts pocketing is detrimental, but for quasi-conformal contacts friction reductions of up to 73% are predicted. The largest reduction in friction was obtained for textures consisting of close-packed arrays of circular pockets of diameter comparable to the size of the contact. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
