Attempt at Evaluating the Influence of Bending Stress on Shaft Wear Process in Water Lubricated Sliding Bearing with Rubber Bush
Water lubricated bearings find increasingly wide application in shipbuilding or hydro–power industry, the popularity stemming from their numerous advantages. Unfortunately, as it turns out, water lubricated bearings do not always meet expectations, as on occasion they become subject to intense, premature wear which requires costly repair. One of the still unexplained phenomena is the process of excessive bearing wear, in particular that of shaft journal co-working with rubber bushing. The research goal was to evaluate the influence of shaft bending stress on the degree of its wear. Experimental tests were carried out on a purpose-designed test stand. The results of the first test series confirmed that the shaft bending stresses do have impact on the magnitude of wear.
