For improving automobile fuel efficiency, the internal combustion engines must be required to reduce the friction and wear. Changing viscosity of lubricant and surface pressure could succeed, but the seizure is easy to happen in engines. However, the surface texture can solve those problems. The running-in behavior affects friction and wear on whole combustion engines. If the running-in is not carefully designed, catastrophic accident can happen. This experiment investigates that the running-in behavior is influenced by textured surfaces and the tested materials are the cast iron and the different area ratio of dimple of aluminum alloy combination. The friction coefficient and the number and size of wear particles are measured by the friction sensor and particle counter. After the tests, the worn surfaces are measured through using surface profile measurement systems, and some significant phenomena are observed and analyzed. The textured surface verifies good consequence and tribological advantages.
