IN A PAPER presented to the Society of Automobile Engineers at the Annual Meeting at Detroit, Jan. 11th to loth, 1960, a paper entitled “Radioactive Cylinders —A Tool for Wear Research,” was presented by W. C. Arnold and V. T. Stonehocker (Fairbanks, Morse & Co.) and W. J. Braun and D. N. Sunderman (Batelle Memorial Institute). The work was under‐taken because it was concluded that ring wear data bears little correlation to wear rates experienced in cylinder liners, at least for Fairbanks, Morse engines. A limitation with reactors was the size of specimen that could be irradiated. Piston rings had been treated but cylinder liners were large and difficult. More recently, the development of pool‐type water‐cooled and moderated reactors made possible the irradiation of larger sized specimens and so in con‐junction with the Battelle Memorial Institute, work commenced in 1958.
