All measurements of EHD film thicknesses have been carried out in simulated test machines. This study uses an actual bearing. A test rig using a 65 mm bore radial cylindrical roller bearing has been constructed with a specially designed sapphire window in the outer track. Full loads, and speeds to 3000 rpm were applied. With specially polished rollers and chromic oxide coating on the window excellent interferometric film thickness measurements were found possible. A Xenon flash lamp was used… CONTINUE READING
