A numerical model has been developed to investigate the effect of cylinder liner honing angle on hydrodynamic lubrication between piston ring and cylinder liner. The Reynolds equation was solved in 2D with periodic boundary conditions. An artificial surface texture was generated, based on a real surface measured with white light interferometry. Cavitation was modelled with the Vijayaraghavan and Keith algorithm. Honing angles between 25-75° were investigated to find the effect of honing angle on film thickness.
