Hi...
I WOULD BE GLADFUL IF ANYONE SUGGEST ME ON CAM PROFILE DESIGN ESPECIALLY FOR PISTON RINGS...
IT WOULD BE HELPFUL IF THERE IS ANY WEBSITE RELATED TO IT...
BYE...

Pistons are no longer round they are elliptical shaped to provide a round shape when up to operating temp.
This allows the direction with the rod boss to match the other 90 direction at run time. The skirt has other thermodynamic properties to effect it before and at operating temperature. FYI.. this why it is no longer correct to warm up you auto engine slowly, get in it and drive and get past the warm up as quickly as possible... this gets past the "doesn't fit" time where the most damage happens in piston/ring/cylinder wall fit tolerances sooner.

Now for the rings... thinking out loud... and also wanting to know why and if they are cam shaped..... I'd guess the following... if I may....and it IS a guess..for conversation & discussion.
The rings too are effected by the fact that there is one area that is not a circle, the gap. The ring too needs to be round and produce equal closure all the way around the cylinder wall when at operating temperature (except at the gap). Plus the piston and ring are not the same temperature all the way around.. this effects shape changes. However, I thought piston rings were still being manufactured round.... in spite of these facts.

Someone please step up and give a definitive answer.
