Transition from Boundary Lubrication to Hydrodynamic Lubrication of Slider Bearings

Abstract

The transition from boundary lubrication to fully hydrodynamic lubrication is investigated for air-lubricated slider bearings using the electrical resistance method. Intermittent contacts are shown to exist even under conditions for which the numerical solution of the Reynolds equation or white light interferometry predicts steady state spacings in the… (More)
