  1. Novel In-Cylinder Wear Coatings for Improved High Output Military Diesel Engine Performance and Durability

    SBC: NanoCoatings, Inc.            Topic: A18099

    Future U.S. Army vehicles will require engines with low heat rejection, high power density, lower-friction (15 % reduction), reduced fuel consumption (2-5% lower), and higher durability. Our team, NanoCoatings, Inc. (NCI) and Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), will down-select the most promising coating technologies and coating materials for both piston-rings and cylinder-liners. Our preliminary ...
