This contribution describes a methodology to evaluate the influence of bellmouth profiles on the elastohydrodynamic behaviour of the contact interface between the gudgeon pin and the piston of a high-performance internal combustion engine. First, a thermo-mechanical simulation is performed to evaluate the piston bosses thermal strains. Consequently, a Multibody elastohydrodynamic model is set up to evaluate the tribological behaviour of this lubricated interface considering a perfectly cylindrical shape of the piston bosses and their thermal deformation. Then, a preliminary bellmouth profile is adopted and a second Multibody model is performed. Nevertheless, the results, together with issues encountered analysing some tested pistons, suggest that modifications of piston bosses have to be introduced. Finally, an optimised bellmouth geometry is proposed and analysed.

Abstract

This contribution describes a methodology to evaluate the influence of bellmouth profiles on the elastohydrodynamic behaviour of the contact interface between the gudgeon pin and the piston of a high-performance internal combustion engine. First, a thermo-mechanical simulation is performed to evaluate the piston bosses thermal strains. Consequently, a Multibody elastohydrodynamic model is set up to evaluate the tribological behaviour of this lubricated interface considering a perfectly cylindrical shape of the piston bosses and their thermal deformation. Then, a preliminary bellmouth profile is adopted and a second Multibody model is performed. Nevertheless, the results, together with issues encountered analysing some tested pistons, suggest that modifications of piston bosses have to be introduced. Finally, an optimised bellmouth geometry is proposed and analysed.
