Despite their simple appearance, internal combustion engine gaskets are highly engineered products. Their design is pinpointed only after extensive functional studies. Engine dynamometer testing (usually at more than rated power outputs and thermal shock conditions) along with long-term field testing, are nearly always conducted before the gaskets are adopted. Before an engine manufacturer undertakes costly tests, gasket manufacturers must demonstrate that their engineering analyses and tests support such expenditures.
