The Effect of Dimensions and Location of Oil Grooves on the Static Performance of a Cylindrical Journal Bearing

In this study, the effect of dimensions and location of oil grooves on the static performance of a cylindrical journal bearing is analyzed numerically. Axial length, circumferential length and location of oil grooves are considered as parameters. Cavitation occurs within the diverging region of a journal bearing. The distribution of cavitation region where cavitation occurs varies with dimensions and location of oil grooves and affects the performance of a journal bearing. Elrod's cavitation algorithm which implements JFO boundary conditions based on the principle of mass conservation at the interfaces between cavitation and full film region is adopted in order to consider the effect of cavitation. The result shows that parameters, especially location of oil grooves have a great effect on the static performance of a journal bearing.

Despite the increasing need of nanometer-scale accuracy in abrasive machining using ultrasmall particles such as abrasive jet and chemical mechanical polishing(CMP), the process mechanism is still unknown. Based on the background, research on the effects of various process parameters on the machined surface at abrasive machining was motivated and performed by using finite element analysis where the effect of slurry fluid flow involved. The effect of particle shape on the machined surface during particle-surface collision was discussed in this paper. The results from FEA simulation revealed that any damage or defect generation on machined surface by the impact may occur only if the particle has enough impact energy. Therefore, it could be concluded that generation of the defects and damage on the wafer surface after CMP process was mainly due to direct contact of the 3 bodies, i.e., pad-particle-wafer.

A new test rig is presented to measure friction losses at journal bearings in a reciprocating compressor. This rig consists of a test bearing, torque sensor, driving motor and loading parts especially for vertical shaft. Friction losses are obtained by measuring torque between motor and test bearing. The experiments are carried out at several rotational speeds and temperatures. The test results are presented and discussed.
Static Characteristic Analysis of Mechanical Face Seal Used for Boiler Feedwater Pump
Kim, Dong-Wook ; Jin, Sung-Sik ; Kim, Jun-Ho ; Kim, Kyung-Woong ;

Mechanical face seal installed in boiler feedwater pump prevents leakage of working fluid using thin fluid film between stator and rotor. If the leakage of working fluid exceeds the allowable volume, serious malfunction of boiler feedwater pump will be happen. The thinner fluid film exists between stator and rotor, the less working fluid leaks out. However, if the thickness of fluid film is not enough, the wear of seal face will be increased. And it causes the decrease in life of mechanical face seal. Therefore appropriate design is necessary to maximize the performance and life of mechanical face seal. In this study, numerical analysis using finite volume method was conducted to investigate the static characteristics of wavy mechanical face seals which have 4 different wavy surface profiles on rotor. As a result, opening force, leakage volume of working fluid and friction torque were obtained. For the same minimum film thickness, the static characteristics of mechanical face seal were affected by the wavy surface profile which can change the thickness of working fluid film and pressure distribution.
Numerical Analysis on the Oil Film Behavior of Engine Main Bearing Considering Dilution of Diesel Fuel
Kim, Han-Goo ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers, volume 26, issue 4, 2010, Pages 240~245
This paper describes the influence on engine main bearing behavior of the oil film when the fuel is diluted on a diesel engine equipped with DPF system. Oil film pressure and the thickness is calculated in accordance to the fuel dilution. The calculation is based on the numerical analysis of the engine main bearing. As a result, the engine oil viscosity decreased as the fuel dilution increased. This led the increment of the maximum oil thickness pressure. Verification of the minimum oil film thickness settlement by the engine gas pressure and the fuel dilution was confirmed. Destruction possibility of the engine main bearing was foreseen when the engine speed was 2000 rpm with the fuel dilution 15% and the 5W40 engine oil.

Friction characteristics of the brake friction materials without environmentally regulated ingredients were examined to find their role in the brake performance. Five friction materials were produced based on a nearcommercial formulation by changing the relative amount of potentially hazardous ingredients to health and environment, such as
, potassium titanate, and brass fiber. Tribological properties of the friction materials were obtained using a scale dynamometer and Krauss type tribometer. Results showed that the excluded three ingredients played important synergetic effects on tribological properties in terms of fade resistance, wear resistance and friction effectiveness. In particular, brass fibers played important roles in the friction stability by providing excellent thermal diffusivity at the friction interface. Potassium titanate whiskers showed excellent fade resistance and wear resistance compared to the substituted barite. Antimony trisulfide, on the other hand, showed little effect on the high temperature fade resistance and wear resistance, while it increased friction effectiveness at moderate temperatures. The friction materials without the three ingredients showed severe fade, indicating antisynergy effects.
