Title: Analysis of orifice compensated non-recessed hole-entry hybrid journal bearing operating with micropolar lubricants
Authors: Ram N.
Sharma, Satish Chandra
Published in: Tribology International
Abstract: A numerical study concerning the performance of non-recessed hole-entry hybrid journal bearing lubricated with micropolar lubricants is presented. The modified Reynolds equation governing the flow of micropolar lubricant in the bearing clearance space is solved using Finite Element Method along with appropriate boundary conditions. Dependence of bearing performance characteristics upon the bearing operating, geometric and micropolar parameters, over a range, has been analyzed. The numerically simulated results are pointed to the choice of restrictor design parameter, for the chosen combination of micropolar parameters of lubricant, in order to obtain optimum values of fluid film stiffness coefficients. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
