Analysis of Cracking Phenomena on Carbon-Rings of Mechanical Seals for an Automotive Air Conditioning Compressor 910531
Mechanical seals have been applied as a sealing device for an automotive air conditioning compressor. Sometimes, the leaking trouble occurs under the conditions such as excessive wear, blistering formation and cracking phenomena on the carbon-ring.
This paper is concerned with the analysis of cracking phenomena based upon Finite Element Method (FEM) calculation and experimental investigation.
