Structural properties of foil bearings: a closed-form solution validated with finite element analysis
Fluid film thickness in a compliant foil bearing is greatly influenced by the deflection of the bearing structure. Therefore, in order to properly model performance of a foil bearing, it is mandatory that the deflection of the compliant bearing structure due to the generated hydrodynamic pressure is determined accurately. This article proposes an easy-to-use two-dimensional model, which takes into account detailed geometry of the...
Water lubricated bearings are used from many years in shipbuilding, hydro power and other industries because of their advantages such as: extensive serviceable life, low coefficient of friction, longevity of shaft sleeve, good abrasion resistance, low maintenance required, unit simplicity, no danger of pollution and low price. Various types of water lubricated sliding bearings have been tested at the Technical University of Gdansk...
The aim of this study was to analyse the performance of journal bearings with specially created dimples on the sliding surface and operating under various conditions. The texture was created on the bearing surface that co-acted with the smooth journal; moreover, the variation of the textured surface of the journal mating with the smooth bearing was tested, and the results were compared to those obtained with the standard smooth...
