A bench friction test system for piston ring and liner contact, which has high stroke length and large contact width has been used to verify the analytical mixed lubrication model presented in a companion paper (Part 1). This test system controls the speed, temperature and lubricant amount and records the friction force, loading force, crank angle signal and contact temperature data simultaneously. The effects of running speed, applied normal load, contact temperature and surface roughness on friction coefficient have been investigated for conventional cast-iron cylinder bores. Friction coefficient predictions are presented as a function of crank angle position and results are compared with bench test data. Analytical results correlated well with bench test results.
