Abstract

Current and future trends in structural automotive ceramics are discussed in this paper. The present state and the future of the adiabatic engine is scrutinized. The problem of the creation, and the benefits, of ceramic portliners are demonstrated with regard to turbocharger and exhaust gas cleaning catalyst performance. Ceramic components for the reduction of friction and wear are discussed. The application of wear resistant ceramics in the lubricant-free operating ‘Ficht’ engine is demonstrated. Information is supplied on current and future trends in making turbocharger rotors and on their future market prospects.
