Abstract: This paper proposes a new procedure to evaluate engine liner wear volume and wear depth particularly for short duration engine tests.The method is based on the fact that honing depth is not removed when small amount of wear occurs. It was considered that 90% point of the bearing area curve is the same before and after wear. Then, the bearing area curve for the used liner was transformed by the depth differences at 90% and the area between the two curves was calculated by numerical procedure. As the diameter of the liner is known, the wear volume was calculated for the various zones selected at different points from TDC and BDC.The methodology involved has been programmed in Cqq. The wear depth is obtained by the projection on the depth axis of the two bearing area curves, and then finding their difference. This method is considered superior to the usual method of gauging the changes in diameter as such determinations are influenced by the distortions that occur in the liner.The new procedure needs to be applied more extensively to improve confidence in repeatability and reproducibility and to determine the limits of applicability. Controlled laboratory wear tests and further measurements on cylinders from field engines are therefore proposed.
