31) seals the gap left between the piston and the cylinder wall. Made from high-grade centrifugally cast iron, it is split to enable the ring to be assembled onto the piston. Some rings may be coated on their outer edge with chromium to give better wear characteristics and longer life. Normally three rings are fitted. The top compression ring takes most of the compression pressure and forms the first defence against the heat and escaping gases. It may be stepped so that it misses the ridge that tends to form in the cylinder bore at TDC.

40 Heat is generated by dry friction two materials where very little lubrication is present (Fig. 41). Fluid friction (hydrodynamic friction) A film of fluid prevents contact between two materials, for example between the rotating crankshaft journal and the bearing. A film of oil under pressure ensures that the two metal surfaces slide over one another. The only friction that occurs is between the oil particles themselves. These have less resistance to sliding over one another than solid surfaces have.

It mixes rapidly with the air until self-ignition occurs near TDC. Second stroke (piston moving downwards) The rapidly expanding gases force the piston downwards. The exhaust valves are arranged Engines and lubrication Piston falling exhaust open transfer port open. Mixture transferred from crankcase.
