This paper clarified piston friction forces and conditions of lubrication in the high engine speed range through the improvement of piston friction measuring instruments. Measurements of piston friction forces of the two-ring package have been also done. It is found that the effect of the two-ring package on the reduction of friction forces is greater than expected by means of the oil starvation phenomenon.
