Internal combustion engine components have been a main research interest over many decades . The structural mechanics and dynamics of the piston rings has been a large focus of work in order to gain a greater understanding of the how the piston ring dynamics affect the piston ring. Piston rings are designed to create a seal which means that they will suffer large levels of material loss due to wear during operation. To further the understanding of the ring allows for a more accurate estimate of its behaviour.
