Title: Influence of micropolar lubricants on the performance of slot-entry hybrid journal bearing
Authors: Sharma, Satish Chandra
Ram N.
Published in: Tribology International
Abstract: A theoretical study concerning the slot-entry hybrid journal bearing lubricated with micropolar lubricants is presented. The modified Reynolds equation for micropolar lubricant is solved using finite element method along with equation of lubricant flow through slot-entry restrictors as a constraint together with appropriate boundary conditions. It has been observed that a slot-entry hybrid journal bearing operating with micropolar lubricant shows an increase in the value of minimum fluid film thickness and a reduction in the value of coefficient of friction as compared to a corresponding similar slot-entry hybrid journal bearing operating with Newtonian lubricant. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
