Analysis of Porous Journal Bearings-Performance and Optimization 840098

This paper presents a simultaneous solution of both Reynolds equation for hydrodynamic lubrication and Laplace's equation for a porous matrix, the continuity of pressure at film-bearing interface being maintained.Performance characteristics for an infinitely long bearing are obtained and design charts comprising optimum curves for maximum load capacity, minimum friction loss and maximum utilization of bearing bush porous material are displayed.
