Abstract:
Marine recreational and commercial products, specifically outboard motors, have transformed from the old days of smoke belching, oil burning 2 stroke engines to the modern day fuel injected clean burning 4-stroke engines. This transformation has brought numerous challenges to the designs of the modern outboard motors. Early 4-stroke designs were heavy and under performing compared to their 2-stroke brethren. Significant advancements in engine design, enabled by advances in casting alloys and FEA modeling capabilities enabled the transformation of the 4-stroke outboard motor to match the weight and performance characteristics of the old 2-stroke outboard motors. The high toughness die cast aluminum alloys that have helped lead this transformation will be discussed including the corrosion resistance requirements that are needed for marine service applications.
