One of these request concerns the hydrodynamic journal bearing models made available in the context of EMBS.
[25] established an experimental apparatus for a tilting-pad journal bearing to obtain the bearing surface pressure and temperature data under variable bearing loads and rotating speeds.
They cover tribological materials: an ecosustainable perspective, preparation and tribology performance of biologically based ceramic particles from rice wastes, tribological behavior and tribochemistry of Ti3SiC2 in water and alcohols, modeling and analyzing the oil-film pressure of a hydrodynamic journal bearing lubricated by nano-based biolubricants using a D-optimal design, and the wear performance of polyester composite reinforced with oil palm seed fiber and aged in brake fluid solutions.
In addition, laser surface-textured parallel thrust bearing and journal bearing were researched, respectively, by Brizmer and Kligerman [13] and Brizmer et al.
In recent years, many scholars conduct the experimental research in journal bearing. Liu [16] designed the water-lubricated bearing test device which consisted of the housing seat, shaft, loading cylinder, and journal bearing and a set of mutually perpendicular displacement sensors was placed in the side of the tested bearing.
Parameter design and tolerance design for journal bearing have been carried out using orthogonal array based Taguchi methodology.
Steady state behaviour of journal bearing has recently been investigated numerically by Kumar et al [3].
In the journal bearing, the force vector can be written:
The Blackmer ProVane pump employs a hydrodynamic journal bearing that reduces shaft/bearing contact and minimises friction, which in turn leads to higher mechanical efficiency and energy savings.
