Novel materials in fluid film bearing design
2015 (English)In: M2D2015: Proceedings of the 6th international conference on mechanics and materials in design, INEGI-FEUP , 2015, 2275-2276 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
This work shows how the use of novel materials, such as polymer composites and synthetic lubricants, in bearing design significantly improves bearing performance characteristics. Different bearing designs are considered. Improvements in main bearing performance characteristics, such as temperature, lubricant film thickness, load carrying capacity and power loss are presented. The effect of such design modifications on the bearing dynamic characteristics is considered. It is also shown that this approach allows a 50 % reduction in bearing power loss without sacrificing bearing safety.
