Contributing editor Linda Day interviewed STLE member Dr. Val Dunaevsky and Harold McCormick for an article on modeling techniques that explore how piston rings conform lo cylinder bores that are never completely round at operating temperatures and how fluid mechanics can affect oil sneaking around the rings. Preserving an electronic version of your committee's procedures and bylaws helps new volunteers continue your work, as STLE President Bob Bruce notes in Beyond Auto Pilot (p. 6). * In Can STLE compete in a Google world?
