This work on "Development of Tribological and Advanced High-Temperature In-Cylinder Components for Advanced High-Temperature Diesel Engines" was supported by the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Command (TACOM) of Warren, Michigan. The previous TACOM-supported research and development programs identified high-temperature tribology and in-cylinder, insulated component materials as key problem areas for the advanced adiabatic low-heat-rejection (LHR) engine.

The purpose of this program is to develop a new advanced tribological and insulating technology for future military LHR diesel engines. The objective of Phase I was to select concepts and technologies which would meet the targets and operating conditions of this non-water-cooled military engine. Special consideration was given to the development of a system which would be adaptable to the Advanced Integrated Propulsion System (AIPS) diesel engine with minimal technology transfer.

The concepts for final acceptability were based on:

• Technology transfer,
