The following study presents typical cylinder deformations that come up during engine assembly and operation and provides results of analysis of how these changes affect the operation of the compression ring. Special attention has been paid to the effect of cylinder diameter increase on the distribution of the circumferential wall pressure and the cause of light gaps formation has been explained. The analyses presented in the following paper have been carried out using a computer program that has been formulated based on a compression ring mathematical model. Exemplary results of simulation have been obtained for a medium speed generator engine of a cylinder diameter of 0.48 m.
