Keywords: Cylinder liners; surface quality;

Abstract: The cylinder liners’ surface is really important in an engine because it corresponds with piston rings to a tribologic system indispensable to know for reasons of wear, of oil consumption and engine’s life time. For these reasons, it is important to measure and characterize these surfaces. The first part of the project is the observation of the impact of the number of strokes of the plateau honing on the surface of the cylinder liners. It is interesting to observe the impact of the variation of the number of strokes of the plateau honing on the peaks, plateaus and valleys of the surface. The second part of the project is the simulation of the oil flow on the surface to observe the links between the roughness parameters and the oil flow and the shear stress. The results are interesting, we will observe that the number of strokes of honing as a good impact on the quality of the surface. In the second part of the project, the results show a correlation between the machining parameters and the roughness and functional parameters. It could be interesting to mix the two parts of the project to see the correlation among machining, roughness and functional parameters for the samples made in the first of the project.
