An experimental and theoretical study is presented to study the effect of surface texturing in the form of circumferential oil grooves on improving the tribological properties of piston ring-cylinder liner tribosystem. Tests were performed on a reciprocating test rig with actual piston rings and cylinder liner segments, and a numerical model has been developed. A comparison was made between the performance of the textured cylinder liners and un-textured cylinder liners. It was found that with the smaller oil groove area density, the reduction in friction force is more obvious, Parabolic and triangular oil grooves are more efficient in friction reducing, and the prediction results by numerical model match the experimental results well in most case.
