Abstract(E)In the crankshaft bearing part of an aluminum block engine, the clearance changes depending on the temperature due to the difference in the coefficient of thermal expansion between the aluminum block and the forged crankshaft. In order to react to the change in the oil clearance due to temperature variation, the author has tried to apply Micro Groove Bearing (MGB) with excellent running-in characteristics using a 4L V8 gasoline engine made of aluminum block. The results show that the best specification of MGB has been 2.5-3.0μm in depth and 0.15-0.25mm in width and the engine starting friction at -30℃ has been 90-160 Nm and the crankshaft friction has been about 40% of the total friction. No damage has been found in the test bearings for the revolution speed of 1000-4000r/min. under full load.

About search


How to use the search box

You can enter up to 5 search conditions. The number of search boxes can be increased or decreased with the "+" and "-" buttons on the right.
If you enter multiple words separated by spaces in one search box, the data that "contains all" of the entered words will be searched (AND search).
Example) X (space) Y → "X and Y (including)"

How to use "AND" and "OR" pull-down

If "AND" is specified, the "contains both" data of the phrase entered in the previous and next search boxes will be searched. If you specify "OR", the data that "contains" any of the words entered in the search boxes before and after is searched.
Example) X AND Y → "X and Y (including)"  X OR Z → "X or Z (including)"
If AND and OR searches are mixed, OR search has priority.
Example) X AND Y OR Z → X AND (Y OR Z)
If AND search and multiple OR search are mixed, OR search has priority.
Example) W AND X OR Y OR Z → W AND (X OR Y OR Z)

How to use the search filters

Use the "search filters" when you want to narrow down the search results, such as when there are too many search results. If you check each item, the search results will be narrowed down to only the data that includes that item.
The number in "()" after each item is the number of data that includes that item.
