Research project: Scuffing of heavy duty diesel engines - Dormant

Currently Active: 
No

This project utilised online high speed friction signals to determine the onset of scuffing damage in heavy duty diesel cast iron liner materials

This project showed how the onset of scuffing in heavy duty diesel engines could be monitored and evaluated using high speed friction data. The work found the scuffing phenomena could be broken down into progressive stages, which were often different according to which type of cast iron microstructure the liner was made from.
