Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Contact Pressure Existance in Sealing Structure 2020-28-0343

Sealing is one of the important components in automotive and aerospace industry. The primary function of lip seal is to protect contamination and retaining the lubricant. This investigation relates to study of contact pressure existence on dynamic sealing. Sealing for steering intermediate shaft requires sliding motion between shaft and seal as well as protection of lubricant from contamination and retention. Contact pressure analysis of Steering intermediate shaft with hyper elastic rubber seal is done at static as well as sliding condition using ABAQUS. Experiments were also conducted to check contact pressure between seal and shaft by using Fuji-pressure film sensor. The result from CAE analysis was compared with experimental data. This analysis of contact pressure helps to support enough interference between seal and shaft with satisfies the need of sealing as well as sliding in intermediate shaft.
