Results of a combined theoretical and experimental investigation into the operation of thrust bearings with PTFE-faced pads are reported. Bearing performance is analysed in terms of temperature, power loss, oil film thickness and pressure. These parameters are first calculated using a THD model. The effect of PTFE facing on bearing thermal performance is then presented and discussed. A TEHD model is subsequently employed. Obtained TEHD results show that oil film thickness and temperature are strongly affected by the PTFE layer. Theoretical results are compared with measured temperature, oil film thickness and pressure.
