Experimental studies of friction and wear for piston skirt and cylinder liner materials at hydrodynamic mode with using a friction machine have been carried out. Influence of initial roughness and lubricant on a final micro-relief of contacting surfaces after experiment was investigated. The experimental studies were carried out according to a “roller-pad” scheme. Three brands of motor oil from the main groups for diesel engines were used. The first is from the group of oils made from the sulphurous oil. The second is from the group of oils containing alkylsalicylate additives. The third is from the group of oils with packages of dealkylation phosphate additives. The wear rate and the friction coefficient in each experiment were determined. Experiment results show that the parameters of the equilibrium roughness do not depend on their initial values, but depend on the applied engine oil. The hypothesis, which explains the reasons of relief change of friction surfaces at hydrodynamic mode, is proposed.
