Inner piston connects with the piston pin by the connecting rod. Outer piston with a ring sits on inner piston supported by the spring. The characteristic of this engine is: Every stroke volume changes diversity. In exhaust stroke, outer piston gets to the tiptop of the cylinder, waste gas almost discharges (exhaust ratio can be to 95%˜98% in theory), compression ratio is improved (≧12); In intake stroke, outer piston continues moving by the inertia at the end of the intake stroke, the air intake volume increases. So it realizes the automatic supercharging and the fuel efficiency and emission have improved. Since outer piston has the effect of storing energy, the peak pressure and the speed of the pressure raising have been reduced.

A modified surface layer is formed by injecting injection powders containing a reinforcing element to be collided with an Al—Si alloy-based piston obtained by casting and forging by injecting under predetermined conditions, the reinforcing element being diffused and penetrated in the piston to improve the strength thereof. When a function, such as fuel modification, is imparted to the modified surface layer, an element exhibiting a photocatalytic function by oxidation, such as Ti, Sn, Zn, Zr, or W, is selected as the reinforcing element. By locally heating and cooling performed on the piston surface by the collision with the injection powders, alloy elements are fine-grained by recrystallization, the reinforcing element in the injection powders is diffused and penetrated in the piston surface by activated adsorption, and a modified layer having a uniformly fine-grained microstructure containing the alloy elements and the reinforcing element is formed. As a result, besides improvement in strength of the piston, by the selection of the above element, such as Ti, the photocatalytic function, such as fuel modification, can also be obtained.11-04-2010
