TRACTION DIESEL-ENGINE CYLINDER-LINER WEAR ON INDIAN RAILWAYS

Study on conditions brought about by high rates of cylinder-liner wear under service conditions leading to data collection on 170 locomotives embracing 2,200 cylinders. Examination of performance life of indigenously-produced liners and those imported. Combustion gas-pressure effect on ring/cylinder-bore contract pressure and its effect on lubrication during the working cycle was also examined. Attrition, abrasion, and corrosion wear are discussed along with application of chromed-liners.
