APPLICATION OF STATISTICAL DATA TO IMPROVE LARGE BORE ENGINE LUBE OIL CONSUMPTION

Factorial testing has been a valuable tool for improving the performance of small bore engines by introducing modifications to piston ring and piston designs. Laboratory tests have produced advanced improvements in such parameters as oil consumption and blow-by, factors that are currently of utmost importance in endeavoring to reduce the usage of oil and the pollution of air. Many of the results obtained from small engine tests are applicable to large bore engines. This paper expands on the numerous theories gleaned from factorial testing of small bore engines and applied to large bore engines and the results obtained from a series of engines successfully tested in the field.
