THE LUBRICATION OF PISTON RINGS APPLIED TO HIGHLY RATED ENGINES

Basic lubrication theory is reviewed, and the concepts of convergent wedge, divergent wedge and squeeze film lubrication are treated. The paper then describes studies which have been made into the behaviour of lubricated piston rings for large marine engines. Order from NSFI as No. 14,917.
