measurement of oil film pressure in hydrodynamic journal

Oil film pressure is one of the key operating parameters describing the operating conditions in hydrodynamic journal bearings Measuring the oil film pressure in bearings has been a demanding task and therefore the subject has been studied mainly by mathematical means The aim of this study was to determine the oil film pressure Figure 4 - Bearing Nomenclature Figure 5 - Pressure Profile in a Journal Bearing In our plain journal bearing example the load is supported by a high pressure oil region as shown in figure 5 Each line in the pressure profile represents an oil pressure vector

Hydrostatic and Hydrodynamic Bearings Selection Guide

A hydrodynamic bearing is typically a low-clearance assembly that relies on a film of oil (and occasionally air) that develops space while the spindle is rotating The bearings transmit (float) the load on self-renewing film of lubricant The most basic hydrodynamic bearing is the journal bearing

Jan 30 2015Schematic of a journal bearing In some cases involving high-frequency varying loads as in internal combustion engines the pressure might drop below the oil vapor pressure (which is lower than the ambient pressure) In this case bubbles are formed by rapid evaporation/boiling of the oil This phenomenon is known as vapor cavitation

hydrodynamic journal bearings is essential to machine design Oil film pressure is one of the key operating parameters describing the operating conditions in hydrodynamic journal bearings Measuring the oil film pressure in bearings has been a demanding task and therefore the subject has been studied mainly by mathematical means

6 Results and Discussion To ensure numerical accuracy the pressure distribution as shown in Figure 9 satisfies the 0 1% convergence limit In Figure 9 it is clear that the magnitude of pressure generation in the oil film for a sector shaped pad is changing from small grid size to larger one In the leading edge side the pressure on the pad surface is small meanwhile large pressure

Nov 01 2013Both hydrostatic effect and hydrodynamic effect are taken into consideration when the fluid-film reaction is calculated as in Section 2 5 To obtain the distribution of bearing lands oil film pressure generated by hydrostatic effect we would not use Reynolds equation but the linear valuating method to solve the pressure of bearing land after we have obtained the pressure of hydrostatic

Hydrodynamic Lubrication

Fluid film or hydrodynamic lubrication is the term given when a shaft rotating in a bearing is supported by a layer or wedge of oil so that the shaft is not in contact with the bearing material The principle which allows large loads to be supported by this film of oil is similar to that which causes a car to aquaplane on a wet road surface

In this study we developed a thin-film pressure sensor and applied it to the measurement of engine main bearing oil film pressure in a 4-cylinder 2 5 L gasoline engine This thin-film sensor is applied directly to the bearing surface by sputtering allowing for measurement of oil film pressure without changing the shape and rigidity of the

and therefore the pressure–viscosity behaviour at high pressures is important for traction modelling Hence a pressure–viscosity model that may only be used up to a pressure of 0 2GPa may yield reasonable Fig 1 Schematic of the PCS instruments UTF measurement system JET504 Proc IMechE Vol 223 Part J: J Engineering Tribology

A new optical technique has been developed which is able to obtain accurate film thickness profiles across elastohydrodynamic (EHD) contacts This has been used in conjunction with a high pressure EHD test rig to obtain both central and minimum EHD film

Abstract: We proposed and demonstrated the measurement of the oil film pressure of a journal bearing based on Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs) for the first time FBG packaged by rubber was inserted into the bearing which was used to sensing the oil film pressure and the temperature in the oil film was measured at the same time

In a hydrodynamic bearing the pressure in the oil film is maintained by the rotation of the journal Hydrostatic bearings enter a hydrodynamic state when the journal is rotating [13] Hydrostatic bearings usually use oil while hydrodynamic bearings can use oil or grease however bearings can be designed to use whatever fluid is available
