MEASURING THE GAP BETWEEN THE PISTON AND CYLINDER OF AN ENGINE BY MEANS OF AN ELECTRON BEAM

The component determining the service life of modern boosted diesel engines is usually the cylinder-piston assembly Previous methods for measuring gaps between parts of the piston-cylinder assembly have the drawback that the engine parts have to be specially prepared in advance, converters (or their sensitive elements) being inserted into the zone of measurement and the useful signal from these extracted from the engine. A back-scattered electron technique is proposed in a slightly modified form for measuring the gap behind an opaque wall, and verified on an internal-combustion engine in model form.
