A trial to define the effect of changes in cylinder geometry on compression ring pressure distribution has been presented in this paper which refers to the earlier papers of the authors. The analysis encompasses these cylinders where both circumferential and axial deformations occurred, relative to constructional and assembly errors but above all to engine operation. The conclusions withdrawn from these analyses were applied to exemplary calculations that try to evaluate the effect of cylinder deformation on correct collaboration of ring and liner and particularly on possibility of circumferential gaps leading to blow-by. The drafts presented in the paper show exemplary results of ring pressure distribution for a complete ring path between the dead centers and selected engine operational data. Moreover, such areas of cylinder surface were shown where slots between compression ring and cylinder liner might occur with high probability.
