  • Patent number: 11320049
    Abstract: In this piston ring combination, a second outer peripheral surface, which is the outer peripheral surface of a second ring, has a second protruding surface curved into a convex shape, and a pair of third outer peripheral surfaces, which are the outer peripheral surfaces of a pair of segments, each have a third outer peripheral area in which a third protruding surface is formed, the third protruding surfaces being curved into convex shapes. In at least one of the pair of third outer peripheral surfaces, the peripheral edge on a crank-chamber side is positioned farther outward in the diametrical direction than the peripheral edge on a combustion-chamber side, and a peak of the third protruding surface is positioned nearer to the crank chamber than the center of the third outer peripheral surface.
