Abstract
IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP NEW OR IMPROVED ON KNOWN GRADIENT CERAMIC/ METALLIC COATINGS FOR APPLICATION ON DIESEL IRON OR STEEL PISTONS CAPABLE OF WITHSTANDING 2000 DEF F COMBUSTION TEMPERATURES AND PROVIDING SIGNIFICANT THERMAL BARRIERS. THE TREND OF DIESEL ENGINE DEVELOPMENT AND PARTICULARLY THE LOW HEAT REJECTION (ADIABATIC) ENGINES TOWARDS HIGHER PISTON HEAD TEMPERATURES REQUIRES THE USE OF THERMAL BARRIERS TO CONTAIN THE HEAT IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER AND/OR TO PREVENT THE TRANSFER OR LOSS OF HEAT THROUGH THE PISTON.
