Abstract [en]

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.
