Abstract

The status of the lubricating oil transport in the piston skirt-cylinder liner has important influence on the lubrication of piston assembly frictional pair, the consumption of lubricating oil, the emission and the performance degradation of lubrication oil. In this paper, based on the model of piston secondary motion, fluid lubrication and lubricating oil flow, the status of the lubricating oil transport between the piston skirt and the cylinder liner on different engine operating condition is calculated, and the quantity of lubricating oil retained on the surface of cylinder liner is mainly analyzed when the piston skirt moves from the top dead center to the bottom dead center. The results show that the variation of the quantity of retained lubricating oil is almost same in the corresponding stroke on different engine operating condition, the quantity of retained lubricating oil is dissimilar at different moment and is equal in principle at the piston top and bottom dead center. The quantity of lubricating oil retention is dissimilar at different moment in the intake stroke or expansion stroke, but the quantity of lubricating oil retention is equal in principle at the top and bottom dead center on different engine operating condition. When the engine is on the same load condition, as the engine rotational speed increasing, the quantity of retained lubricating oil is decreased in the whole intake stroke and the middle and later part of expansion stroke, but the quantity of retained lubricating oil is increased in the front part of expansion stroke. When the engine is on the same rotational speed condition, the quantity of retained lubricating oil increases with the increasing engine load in the front part of expansion stroke, it does not vary with the engine load in principle in the middle and later part of expansion stroke, the variation that the quantity of retained lubricating oil varies with the engine load is dissimilar in the intake stroke on different engine rotational speed condition.
