Influence of micropolar lubricant on bearings performance: A review
This article presents the applicability of the microcontinuum theories to the fluid in sliding surfaces. The classical continuum mechanics fails to predict the accurate results when the geometricExpand
Analysis on design parameters of water-lubricated journal bearings under hydrodynamic lubrication
The article aims to investigate the relationship between eccentricity ratio and the Sommerfeld number based on hydrodynamic water-lubricated journal bearings. Considering the differences betweenExpand
On the Hydrodynamic Sealing in Lubricated Viscoseals

The effect of lubricant inertia on fluid cavitation for high-speed squeeze film dampers
This work studies the effect of lubricant inertia on the fluid cavitation for partially sealed high-speed squeeze film dampers (SFDs) executing small amplitude circular-centered orbits (CCOs). TheExpand
Experimental Research on Wear Loss of Slipper Pair in Axial Piston Hydraulic Motor Lubricated with High Water Based Fluid
The slipper pairs with concaves of reasonable and unreasonable structures and without concave originally are chosen for the experiment. The experimental results show that appropriate concaveExpand
Interactive Effects of Rarefaction and Surface Roughness on Aerodynamic Lubrication of Microbearings
The modified Reynolds equation, which governs the gas film pressure distribution in rough bearing, is solved by employing the partial derivative method and results show that high values of the eccentricity ratio and bearing number tend to increase the principal stiffness coefficients significantly, and the fractal roughness surface considerably affects the ultra-thin film damping characteristics compared to smooth surface bearing.

Evaluation and quantification of friction using Ionic Liquids in small, self lubricating journal bearings
Abstract Four low viscosity Ionic Liquids were evaluated as lubricants in self lubricating porous journal bearings. Precise friction measurements performed under boundary conditions close toExpand
The Development of a Diesel Injector Experiment to Study the Combined Effects of Oxidation and Shear on Lubricating Oil Viscosity
An experimental test rig was needed to apply high rates of shear strain on lubricating oil molecules and study the effects these may have on the degradation of the lubricant. The result was theExpand
Transitional lubricating process in plain bearings in machines
Basing on the summary of existing models of the interaction between sliding surfaces, a model of a transitional lubrication process in lubricated plain bearings has been developed; parameter Pg ofExpand
