Abstract
Material characterization and wear evaluation of the original and replacement pistons and cylinder liners from a Tiger 131 are reported. The original piston and cylinder liner were operative in the Tiger engine during WWII. The replacement piston and cylinder liner were used as substitutes and were obtained after failure in 2 h of operation in the actual engine. Material characterization revealed that the original piston was aluminum silicon hypereutectic alloy approximately matching the specification of RSA-419 AE, with a silicon content of 19.92 wt%. The replacement piston was aluminum copper alloy with a low silicon content of 0.73 wt%, approximately satisfyi...
