Sulzer patents for bore-cooling include one for cylinder liners (applied for in 1936), one for cylinder covers and liners (1944), and one for pistons (1937). The company continued to develop bore-cooling, and it was applied to all three combustion-chamber components (covers, liners, and pistons) for the first time in the RLA 56, the smallest engine in Sulzer's present two-stoke Diesel programme. Further development will be necessary before bore-cooled covers and pistons can be used in series-produced four-stroke Diesels. After explaining the general principles and advantages of bore-cooling, the Authors describe and discuss Sulzer practice in both the design and the production of bore-cooled components. The article is arranged under the headings:--(1) Stresses in Combustion-Chamber Components--Design Requirements. (2) Possible Solutions. (3) Phases in the Introduction of Bore-cooling (Cylinder liners--Cylinder covers--Pistons). (4) Optimising a Bore-cooled Component. (5) The Cylinder Liners. (6) Cylinder Covers (Covers for two-stroke engines--covers for four-stroke engines). (7) Pistons. Order from BSRA as No. 49,956.
