Calculation and Influence of Geometric and Load Parameters on Functional Characteristics of Hydrostatic Radial Bearings


Using the algorithm developed on the basis of the flow balancing method for calculating the main functional characteristics of a complete radial hydrostatic bearing (eccentricity, lubricant feed rate, freed-up power, pumping power, static stiffness, film thickness and operating temperature) it was determined the influence of geometric and load parameters on them, and the optimization possibilities. The case of radial bearings without axial discharge channels, pressed by a quasi-static force, with an unique, variable, or rotating direction, has been analyzed, accepting only the laminar flow regime in both the bearing and capillary droids used for lubricant supply.
