Effect of Bearing Surface Texture on Journal Bearing Pressure Distribution

Singh Pratibha [2] | Rana Chandreshkumar P


Abstract: In the present paper an analysis is performed to study the influence of textured surfaces which may improve hydrodynamic performance. It is examined under the parameters like speed of the shaft; bearing context texture and different loading conditions. By varying the parameters bearing performance is observed in the context of pressure profile generated for each combination of force; speed and bearing texture. Once determining the effects of the parameters on the performance of the journal bearing; for each bearing texture the optimum combination can be found. It is observed that with the increase of loads at constant speed the percentage increase of maximum pressure is more in textured journal bearing w. r. t smooth journal bearing and with the increase of speeds at constant load and constant oil supply pressure; percentage increase of maximum pressure is more in textured journal bearing w. r. t smooth journal bearing.
