Complete modeling of hydrodynamic bearings with a boundary parameterization approach

  author={J. A. Mota and David Julian Gonzalez Maldonado and J. V. Val'erio and Thiago G. Ritto},
The present work aims to revisit the simplifications made in the NavierStokes equations for the flow between two cylinders with a small thickness of lubricating oil film. Through a dimensionless analysis, the terms of these equations are mapped and ordered by importance for the hydrodynamic bearing application. An effective parameterization of the geometry is proposed, enabling a more detailed description of the problem and its adaptation to other contexts. At the end, an elliptical partial… 


The Full Journal Bearing
The basic mathematics of the full journal bearing have been known since 1904 when Sommerfeld‡ made the complete solution, for the infinite journal, of Reynolds theory of 1886. The detailed
Three-Dimensional Flow of a Newtonian Liquid Through an Annular Space with Axially Varying Eccentricity
Flow in annular space occurs in drilling operation of oil and gas wells. The correct prediction of the flow of the drilling mud in the annular space between the well wall and the drill pipe is

Short-bearing approximation for full journal bearings
A short-bearing approximation of pressure distribution in the oil film is presented which is an extension of the pressure-distribution function of Michell and Cardullo and includes end-leakage

An analysis of elliptical bearings is presented based on the numerical solution of Reynolds equation for finite bearings. The solution of the differential equation was performed on a digital
Performance Characteristics of Worn Journal Bearings in Both Laminar and Turbulent Regimes. Part I: Steady-State Characteristics
The effects of geometric change due to wear on the dynamic characteristics of journal bearings are determined theoretically in both laminar and turbulent regimes. The dynamic characteristics such as
