Along with the increase in specific output of internal combustion engines the thermal and mechanical loadings on the pistons have grown continually. This paper deals with modern piston designs used on diesel engines for commercial vehicles, railway traction and marine propulsion. A survey on the comprehensive research and development work on pistons and explanations are given by means of practical examples how part of piston trials can be carried out in the laboratory.
